Christian Bale visited movie-goers today who were injured in the deadly shooting spree at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

The Denver Post reports the star of the last three Batman movies spent more than two hours at the Medical Center of Aurora, meeting with seven patients

The fans’ chance to see the his latest film got cut short early Friday morning when a gunman — who we shall not name — allegedly opened fire on the crowd, killing 12 and injured 58 others. 

The actor and his wife, Sandra Blazic, also visited a makeshift memorial across the street from the Century 16 movie theater.

Warner Bros., the studio behind “The Dark Knight Rises,” told NBC News it plans to make a substantial donation to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund. The fund was established along with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper to help victims of the massacre. 

Due to the sensitive nature of recent events, studio execs canceled the film’s red-carpet Paris premiere and yanked the movie trailer “Gangster Squad” from theaters, which happened to show a movie-theater shooting.
