Has Christian Bale Become Batman

Yesterday was a big day for Christian Bale. "The Dark Knight" came out on DVD and the new trailer for "Terminator: Salvation" was released. My how things have changed for the young man who once sung and dance in "Newsies." But after watching the Terminator trailer, I have this creeping fear that Bale, a skilled actor has become Bruce Wayne, aka The Dark Knight, aka Batman.

Christian Bale has some serious acting jobs, one must only watch "The Prestige" or "The Machinist" to see this. However, with Terminator he seems to be reverting back to the Batman "devil on vocal steroids" voice that he perfected in the two caped crusader films. If you don't know what I'm talking about check it out here.

But hope is not lost, Bale is also in this summer's "Public Enemies" with Johnny Depp, and considering that film is a gangster epic set in the 1920's, I don't expect him to tapping into that gutteral roar which is reserved for crushing robots and destroying jokers.
