It's true that Christian Bale used to sport an overbearing beard, coincidentally around the same time he threw a tantrum on the set of 'Terminator' and screamed like a caveman, but why would you want to allude to that moment by placing the same scruff on the Caped Crusader?

This image right here is probably why Bale decided to keep up his shaving habits while filming the movies. For one, a beard makes him look more like a cast member of 'Teen Wolf.' Combine that with the Dark Knight's incredibly low voice and you've got a tween going through a werewolf's version of puberty.
