Batman star Christian Bale has visited victims of a shooting at a Colorado cinema showing The Dark Knight Rises.

A Warner Bros spokeswoman told The Denver Post that Bale was representing himself, not the film studio.

Carey Rottman, one of the 58 people injured in Friday's shooting, posted two photographs of himself with the actor on his Facebook page.

Hospital staff also posted a Facebook photo of the actor with some staff members.

There has been an online campaign urging Bale to visit the victims of the shooting, which also killed 12 people.

Some of the survivors have also received hospital visits from US president Barack Obama and members of the Denver Broncos football team.
