"Bale gets emotional now when discussing his very last moments as the millionaire Bruce Wayne, who takes it upon himself to become Batman.
“My last scene was with Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. We were on a roof in New York City,” he recalls. “I wrapped and went back to base camp. I just sat in a room and said, ‘Can you leave me alone for 20 minutes?’ I sat there again thinking, ‘OK, this is it.’ But this time I added, ‘I will never take that cowl off again.’
“It was a real moment of pride too because of what we had achieved,” he says of Nolan’s “Batman” trilogy. “We did what we set out to do. It was a very important character to the fans, and me, which makes me very proud.
“The movies not only changed my life, but my career and I appreciate that very much.”
