Victims of Friday’s deadly rampage at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” were visited by none other than Batman, himself, on Tuesday.

Christian Bale, who arrived mid-morning at the Medical Center of Aurora, posed for photos with hospital staff and shooting victims for more than two-and-a-half hours, according to the Denver Post.

A Warner Bros. representative told the newspaper that Bale was in Colorado representing himself, not the studio.

Bale_corey“It was good for the patients,” hospital president Bill Voloch said to the paper. “We hope it was therapeutic for them, and all the staff really appreciated him coming.”

Bale’s visit follows an aggressive online campaign to get Batman to visit the devastated community. Using the hashtag #BaleOutAurora, Twitter and other social media outlets pleaded with the Oscar-winner after 71 people were shot during Friday’s “Dark Knight Rises” screening.

Bale specifically asked that media not be notified of his trip.
