If Batman What He Takes

Try getting in costume in a room that's right around the spot where George Washington was inaugurated as the first President of the United States, as if having to dress up in a latex and rubber Bat costume wasn’t surreal enough.

The third and final movie in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, was filming on location at the Federal Hall monument in lower Manhattan, that’s what went through Christian Bale’s mind as he suited up on the days when “The Dark Knight Rises”.

Bale told the Daily News while promoting his latest film, "The Flowers of War" : “I’m sure George Washington could never have imagined,and I apologize to him, because it probably should have never happened.”

He spent the last eight years as the Caped Crusader — and doesn't regret a minute — but says he's ready to hang up that cape for good. Bale, though, is glad that it did happen.
