Watch Christian Bale Explain His Super Weird Batman Voice

People were all types of mad when Ben Affleck was announced as the next Batman, but remember how weird Christian Bale's Batman was? And we were all chill with that. In this video with MTV, Bale talks about Affleck taking over Batman, Batkid, and how he came up with the bat-voice. It appears to have stemmed from an insecurity about auditioning in an ill-fitting suit. Wow, this whole time we just assumed it came from needing to spit real bad.
