Christian Bale has been confirmed to be visiting the Aurora, Colorado victims by The Denver Post.

Last Friday saw a tragedy unfold during a premiere of The Dark Knight Rises that left 12 dead and 38 injured.

The internet immediately reacted on various social websites urging for Christian Bale to visit the wounded.

The actor has responded.

"Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers," said an assistant for Susan Fleishman, executive vice president for Warner Brothers corporate communications to The Denver Post.

Previously, Bale also released the following statement.

"Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them."

24-year-old James Holmes allegedly entered the emergency door to an Aurora, Colorado theater, threw gas canisters and open fired on the people watching the movie. His apartment was littered with booby-traps, and upon being captured Holmes referred to himself as The Joker.

Update: The DenverChannel has tweeted the following image of Christian Bale visiting with Aurora, Colorado shooting victim Carey Rottman.
