Meme satirizing the encounter between British actor Christian Bale and a guard when Bale tried to visit Chen Guangcheng in 2011.

On December 15, 2011, Bale, who was in China filming "The Flowers of War," drove with a CNN camera crew to Dongshigu, Shandong, where Chen Guangcheng was under extralegal house arrest. A scuffle broke out as security guards in the village pushed Bale and forced his team out of town, tailing Bale's car to make sure they left. The camera crew captured footage of the encounter.

Netizens went to work on one of the security guards shown in the film, who wore a green military-style coat and fur-rimmed hat. Riffing on Bale's role as Batman in the 2008 film "The Dark Knight," a meme soon emerged of Batman battling the "Military Coat." Military Coat was also Photoshopped into Chinese press conferences and visits with foreign dignitaries. A handful of posts about the Batman vs. Military Coat linger on Weibo as of March 19, 2015.
