Batman is all banged up.

Christian Bale popped up in public sporting a blue cast on his arm as he and his wife Sandra Blazic paid a visit to L.A.'s Century City Mall on Thursday.

No word how the Dark Knight Rises star sustained the apparent injury or what exactly was bothering him, but hopefully he's on the mend faster than his alter-ego Bruce Wayne's back problem.

The happy couple subsequently ended up strolling around the shopping complex and grabbed some burgers at the Counter.

Bale is next slated to star as a con man in David O. Russell's untitled project about a '70s FBI sting operation icalled Abscam. The film costars Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner and is due to start shooting in Boston in February.
