Time and time again Christian Bale has been described as a real-life Batman for making fans dreams come true. Well, “The Dark Knight Rises” star did it again when he called eight-year-old leukemia patient Zach Guillot.

Guillot is a huge Batman fan, and Bale called him out of the goodness of his own heart to discuss the popular franchise. The two talked about how Guillot has his own Batmobile made of cardboard, but Bale couldn’t keep his from the movies.

“That sounds fantastic,” Bale said. “You know what? I had to give mine back. They wouldn’t let me keep mine. You’re lucky you get to have one and run around and tell people you are Batman.”

Bale also thanked Guillot for being such a huge fan and said, “It makes us all so happy, so thank you for doing that for us. Thanks for carrying the torch and keepin’ on playing Batman, OK?”

The Oscar winner said that he’d also tell Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy and director Christopher Nolan about the boy’s dedication to the films.

Bale reflected that anybody can be Batman and make the world a better place. He said, “Anybody can be as strong as that, and help people and put good out into the world.” Both Bale and Guillot are doing just that.

This isn’t the first time the 38-year-old has taken time out of his busy life to make a sick child’s day. Last year, he flew a 4-year-old cancer patient and his family to Disneyland. Bale also had lunch with them.

Be sure to watch the following video. The audio is sort of hard to hear, but you can see Guillot’s joy. Bale definitely made his day.
