A Facebook campaign urging Christian Bale to visit Aurora, Colo. and its shooting victims has gained a lot of media attention and support.
Bale, who plays Batman in "The Dark Knight Rises," was asked by Emily Sanchez on Facebook in the wake of a shooting that killed 12 at a midnight showing of the film at a local movie theater last Friday. From the Chicago Sun-Times:
“All those kids in the hospital recovering from gunshot wounds at the Batman massacre could use a visit from their hero,” wrote Sanchez. “I propose we [as in all of Facebook] should make enough noise asking Christian Bale to visit these kids in the hospital dressed in the real Batman outfit. They need to know Heroes can be real too, not just the bad guys."
