You know who’s a good authority about Christopher Nolan’s Batman films? Bruce Wayne himself, Christian Bale, who is happy to set people street about some of their wilder theories. For instance, there are apparently some fans who believe the ending of “Dark Knight Rises,” in which Michael Caine’s Alfred sees Bruce Wayne alive and well in Florence, is all a dream. Well, Bale says you’re wrong. “That was for real,” Bale says during an Entertainment Weekly radio chat. “I find it very interesting. With most films, I tend to always say it’s what the audience thinks it is, but my personal opinion is that no, it was not a dream.” OK, fine, but what about the ending of “Newsies”? Totally a dream sequence, right?
