Hes arguably the best Batman of all time, and Christian Bale had superhero mojo even before he was cast in the Dark Knight franchise.
The American Psycho actors first audition is included in the special features section of the forthcoming The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collectors Edition Blu-Ray box set, and hes quite convincing.
As a favor to director Christopher Nolan, Amy Adams stood in as the female lead as Christian did his best Caped Crusader impression while wearing Val Kilmers Batman suit.
Nolan also notes that Bales decision to use two different voices for Bruce Wayne and Batman was a definite factor in selecting him for the gig.
