Watch Christian Bale Audition as Batman


One of the special bonus features from Warner Home Entertainment’s release of The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray has been released online. The footage is of Christian Bale as he auditions for the role of Batman, in Val Kilmer’s Batman suit no less. Amy Adams did the screen test opposite Bale as a favour to the filmmakers. Interestingly, Christopher Nolan says that it was Bale’s Batman voice that “made a big impression in the test”, complimenting his decision to give Batman a different voice to Bruce Wayne’s.

The six-disc set will feature all three films with their existing extra content, two new featurettes and exclusive new collectible memorabilia. You can check out the full list of features over at
