He's the hero this city deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, instead of fighting crime, Christian Bale has been busy traveling.
The Dark Knight Rises star looked like a real-life dark knight in a black sweater and sunglasses when he was spotted at LAX on Sunday after his incoming flight landed.
The actor was in Koppel, Pennsylvania last week to shadow steel workers in preparation for his latest role as an ex-con trying to make a normal life for himself in Out of the Furnace.
The revenge thriller also stars Zoe Saldana as Bale's girlfriend, while Billy Bob Thornton is rumored to be playing the villain who kills a member of the ex-con's family to set the plot into motion.
Does this flick sound like something you'd like to watch when it hits theaters in 2014?
