Christian Bale Himself Calls Sick Child in Hospital to Talk Batman

Get the tissues out for this video of the Dark Knight himself, Christian Bale calls a sick child battling cancer, just to talk a little Batman.

Watch as little Zach Guillot's eyes light up as he describes his own Batman costume to Bale, who patiently and politely answers every one of the questions the eight year old Leukemia patient has for him.

Bale has a long history of helping the less fortunate, as his visits to victims of the Aurora theater shooting during a Dark Knight Rises screening is well documented. He has also flown sick children to DisneyLand and visited other sick children in hospitals before. Bale doesn't publicize these events, but when an excited parent films their child talking to Batman himself, you can't fault them for giving Bale credit in the form of an internet video.

Who knew Batman could be so emotional?
