Ben Affleck caves and does his best Christian Bale Batman voice
Ben Affleck is no stranger to Batman backlash, but for Red Nose Day, the actor leaned into jabs he’s endured for not being Christian Bale.
A video excerpt from NBC’s Red Nose Day festivities shows an adorable child (Keith L. Williams, The Last Man on Earth) asking Affleck to “do the Batman voice.” When he obliges, he’s met with a protest.
“No! Do it the way Christian Bale does it!”
Affleck obliges again, but by then his audience has an epiphany. “I think I just want Christian Bale to do it,” Williams says.
Red Nose Day is an annual fundraising campaign to fight child poverty. Over the past several years, more and more celebrities have gotten involved to don red noses, make audiences laugh, and raise money for charities around the world that support this cause.
