Clooney has said he will never play a superhero again... at least in my mind!

Bale's Batman voice is still ridiculous, that's all I could think watching the screen test

Yikes. As much as I've never been crazy about the Nolan suits, they definitely look a lot better on Bale than that one.

Man, Bale's Batman voice is perfect in that audition.

The voice doesn't seem as bad there. More of an intense whisper than an OTT growl. It definitely got worse.

If WB hadn't just approached Affleck like they did then he'd have to audition in Bale's costume.

From the Jimmy Fallon interview they went directly to him without even an audition.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Am I right in thinking that Bale is the only actor to play Batman in the movies (not counting the 1966 one) after an audition? I think Burton had Keaton in mind, while Shumacher seems to have offered the role to Kilmer and Clooney respectively after their predecessors quit or were fired. Affleck, as you say, was offered it, but Bale auditioned, along with a lot of young actors around that time.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Oh wow.

Nolan's direction turned Bale's WONDERFUL acting in that test into a cancer-striken, word-eating hooligan.

I guess he does deserve all that directing cred people give him, because that seems fucking impossible.

EDIT: I misheard Nolan's attribution of Bale's two voices as "we" rather than "he", so I posted a petty, unfounded rant about him being a talent-less hack here. Despite it being funny, I regret doing so in err.

Now back to blasting Nolan for things he's actually done, like the third act of TDK and TDKR as a whole. Oh, and managing to completely butt-fuck Bane because Tom Hardy got bored of being in horrible rom-coms and wanted to be in a train-wreck of a Nolan joint.

But you still do auditions in case it doesn't fit. Well, usually you do, to save a lot of money.

^ Oh yeah, I understand that. But it looks like Bale was the only one who had to compete with other actors to land the role.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Here is Cillian Murphy as Batman.

He auditioned for Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman Begins. Nolan thought he wasn't right for Batman, but decided to offer him Scarecrow instead. Nolan made the right decision, but Murphy doesn't look half-bad in the suit.

If nothing else, that would have made for one very creepy Batman.

I am fairly certain Kilmer's suit was black. It was the lighting that made it look silvery, blue.

Cillian Murphy looks a lot like Val Kilmer. Its not just the mask. In it Bale does not look like him. Its the shape of his face and mouth.
