See Christian Bale and Cillian Murphy Auditioning to Play Batman

Cillian Murphy Batman

If you’ve ever wondered what Cillian Murphy would have looked like as Batman, wonder no more. The above image (via Batman-News) is from the new Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition box set, and they’ve got him as Bruce Wayne, too. Somewhere, Tim Burton is jumping with glee.

Now, if you’ve ever wondered whether the Swear To Me voice was always in the mix, wonder no more again. As the below screen test video proves, Christian Bale was asking where the drugs were in that now-signature growl from the very beginning (although I wonder if Kevin Conroy has something to say about what Christopher Nolan is claiming here).

Just think. In ten years, we’ll be seeing shots like this of Josh Brolin and video like this of Ben Affleck surface. But who will we be watching in the Batsuit in twenty?
