Christian Bale Eying Return To Batman-Like Role In Dick Cheney Biopic

dickcheneyBatman is a superhero published by DC Comics, and Dick Cheney was a Vice President in Washington DC, but the two have far more in common than that when diggiging below the surface.

While Cheney was a proponent of sweeping government authority to perform surveillance even on its own citizens, Batman tapped into the cellphones of everyone in Gotham City in order to build a sonar-like system to track criminals throughout the city. While Cheney famously shot his friend in the face while hunting, Batman keeps secret plans to take down all of his friends in case they ever go rogue. While Cheney shaped President Bush's war on terror, Batman is involved in a perpetual war on crime in Gotham City wherein he dresses up like a Batman to beat up mentally ill persons. While Batman is friends with green alien superheroes like The Martian Manhunter, Dick Cheney worked closely with Donald Rumsfeld, who is a member of an ancient race of subterranean lizard people.

Basically, the two are exactly alike. Which is why Christian Bale, who portrayed Batman in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, will be perfect for the role of Cheney in an upcoming biopic. That's why it's great news that Bale is reportedly in talks to accept the role, according to a report from The Failing New York Times Fake News Sad. Steve Carrell could play Rumsfeld in the film produced by Paramount and Plan B Entertainment, with Amy Adams playing Lynne Cheney. The film is written and directed by Adam McKay.

If all goes well, the movie will begin shooting in September.
