Dark Knight, American Psycho, more: Christian Bale's career in pictures
Bale's been relatively quiet over the past couple of years, starring in only one feature since 2009 – although that feature, David O Russell's The Fighter, did also happen to net him his first Oscar.
But Batman aside, Bale's now got a packed couple of years ahead, reuniting first with director Terrence Malick on a pair of back-to-back dramas opposite Natalie Portman, and then with O Russell on American Bulls**t.
To celebrate Bale's strong slate of upcoming projects, Digital Spy casts a photographic eye over some of his most significant roles.
