The Adventures of Bruce Wayne, Eccentric Billionaire - Batman Begins
How long will you let the pain and loss define your life? Walking around chasing bad guys is very heroic and attracts attention, but at the end it all accounts for, as a means to deal with the pain of a huge loss. We agreed that Bruce Wayne is absolutely sincere as Bruce Wayne, and as Batman utterly sincere. But Bruce Wayne, the playboy, is a pure facade, it’s a lie he has, somehow, to control one side of your soul that’s not really under control. In fact, only Alfred knows who he is. It’s time for Bruce Wayne to face the pain, that has always stirred his life. - Christian Bale on Bruce Wayne
“There have been many times when you spend a number of months and the finished product is not what you wanted to see … Batman Begins was what I wanted to see.” - Christian Bale
