Christian Bale has once again brightened the life of a young cancer patient.

The 38-year-old actor, best-known for playing Batman in director Christopher Nolan's recently concluded film trilogy, placed a phone call to Zach, a young boy bravely fighting Leukemia. 

In a video posted to YouTube Friday, Zach tells Bale how much he loves Batman, revealing that he has his own cardboard Batmobile and superhero costume. 

"That sounds fantastic," replied Bale. "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."

After speaking about Seattle and how the weather there relates to his native England, Bale thanks Zach for caring so much about his films. 

“The whole point of the movie is anybody can be Batman," he said. "Anybody can be as strong as that and help people and put good out into the world.”

The call to Zach is just the latest outreach by Bale to help a kid in need. Last September, he flew a 4-year-old cancer patient and his family to Los Angeles for an intimate lunch at Disneyland's Club 33
