Actor CHRISTIAN BALE auditioned to play Batman in VAL KILMER's batsuit.
The American Psycho star tried out for the Christopher Nolan franchise reboot in 2005 in the same suit Kilmer wore in 1995's Batman Forever, but it was his voice, not how he acted in the costume, that landed him the role.
In a new documentary to be released with The Dark Knight Trilogy: The Ultimate Collector's Edition on Tuesday (24Sep13), Nolan says, "I think Christian's voice was a big part of the impression he made in the test. He had decided that Batman needed to have a different voice to Bruce Wayne, that he needed to put on a voice."
