Star of the latest trilogy of Batman films, Christian Bale, was seen in Aurora, Colorado, on Tuesday visiting victims of last week's deadly shooting that took place at a midnight screening of his film "The Dark Knight Rises."
Bale is said to have gone of his own volition, according to a Warner Bros. employee: "Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Bros.," an assistant to the studio's executive VP Susan Fleishman told The Denver Post.
In the above photo, Bale is seen with shooting victim Carey Rottman -- who posted the above photo to his Facebook page along with the message: "Wow!!! Thank you so much for the visit Christian!! What a great guy! Still in shock!"

Bale is reported to have arrived at Aurora Medical Center by ambulance around 2 p.m.
On Saturday, Bale issued the following statement: "Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them."
Other cast members who have made statements since last week's shooting that left 12 dead and more than 50 injured include Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Gary Oldman and the film's director Christopher Nolan.
