Christian Bale’s introduction to Donald Trump sounds like it was highly entertaining.

The superstar actor met the future president while filming “Batman” several years ago, and it sounds like it was anything but a normal meeting.

During an interview at the premiere of “Vice,” Bale told Variety the following about his 2011 interaction with Trump:

I met him, one time. We were filming on ‘Batman’ in Trump Tower and he said, ‘Come on up to the office.’ I think he thought I was Bruce Wayne because I was dressed as Bruce Wayne. So he talked to me like I was Bruce Wayne and I just went along with it, really. It was quite entertaining. I had no idea at the time that he would think about running for president.

I don’t know why, but I find this so damn funny. I just like the optics of Christian Bale in a Batman suit sitting at Trump’s desk, and the real estate mogul treating it like a serious situation.

That just has comedy written all over it. I would pay a lot of money to have been a fly on the wall for that conversation without a doubt. Plus, we all know Christian Bale can be an incredibly intense person when he wants to be.

On a side note, “Vice” looks like it could be the best movie of the year. It looks outstanding. Christian Bale as Dick Cheney has Academy Awards written all over it. (RELATED: The Thanksgiving Box Office Numbers Are Sickening. Here’s How Much Money Was Spent)

Make sure to check out “Vice” in theaters this Christmas season, and then maybe, at some point down the road, we can get a movie where Bale plays Trump. That would be the definition of must-watch content.
