Who Almost Played the Dark Knight?

It's tough to picture anyone other than Christian Bale as Batman in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, but plenty of other actors were considered. See who they were.

Who did Bale beat for Batman?

Trivia

Anne Hathaway has said that she desperately coveted the role of Catwoman, and was a complete nervous wreck after her audition. The first time her agent phoned after her screen test, he said he had good news and asked if Hathaway was sitting down. Hathaway immediately screamed "I'm Catwoman!" and ran around the room in a frenzy. Unfortunately, her agent had to calm the actress down--he had called to let her know that she'd been invited to host the Academy Awards. Hathaway has said she was so shocked she went numb at the offer. Fortunately, shortly thereafter, her agent phoned again to let her know that she had been offered the part of Catwoman as well.


Quotes

Jim Gordon: I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone... inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.


Goofs

(at around 55 mins) When Batman and Selina are on the roof, Los Angeles landmarks are visible including the U.S. Bank Tower and One Wilshire. This is not an error, as many landmarks that are obviously from other cities (Manhattan island, Brooklyn Bridge, Heinz Field, Sears Tower, etc.) are present throughout the trilogy to keep ambiguous which city Gotham represents.


Crazy Credits

"This motion picture was shot and finished on film"


Alternate Versions

On IMAX 70mm prints of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), this film's prologue was shown as a special preview. It contained, with only one exception, entirely different takes of Bane's dialogue.
