Former Batman actor Christian Bale’s acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards appears to have caught a lot of fans off guard.

Last night, Christian Bale won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his portrayal of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and it seems many fans were stunned to hear the former Batman actor speak with his natural English accent. Based on social media reactions, even some who knew Christian Bale hails from Wales forgot that the acclaimed actor had an English accent and you can check out some of those responses below!

Christian Bale previously portrayed the Caped Crusader in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. While Christian Bale has since retired from the role, The Dark Knight is set to return to the big screen with a new actor for a film directed by Matt Reeves.

Plot details for The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film is said to center around a younger Caped Crusader and Matt Reeves has confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic.

The Batman is one of many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC Films, including The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern CorpsBirds of PreyBlack AdamSuicide Squad 2NightwingSupergirl, New Gods, a Deathstroke film, and a Joker origin movie set outside of the DCEU.
