(Newser) – Some of those still hospitalized from the Dark Knight tragedy got a visit today from the movie's star, Christian Bale, reports the Denver Post. Bale visited Aurora, Colo., with his wife and spent a few hours at the local hospital visiting the wounded along with doctors and first-responders. "It was good for the patients," says a hospital official. "We hope it was therapeutic for them, and all the staff really appreciated him coming." Bale asked that the media not be notified of the visit.
