Bale Training on Batman Set & Casting Calls

‘Robert’ is back with some more detective work about the Batman production…

According to two articles (see here and here) in the Icelandic press Bale is keen to stay bulk. I e-mailed one of the journalist from there and they summarized/translated:

Basically it tells that Christian Bale will arrive in Iceland for some shooting soon an has demanded a first class bodybuilding centre on set. Then we mention that Michael Caine is a good friend of the (Icelandic) president and his wife and will surely visit the president if he has to take part in the shooting in Iceland. However there is nothing that points to his(Caine) presence here being neccessary.
