Christian Bale worried he 'f***ed up' Batman audition

Nov 19 2013, 10:16am CST | by Bang Movies

Christian Bale worried he ''f***ed up'' his Batman audition because of his voice.

The actor's incarnation of the caped crusader was defined by his deep, gravelly voice, however, Bale admits he wasn't sure how the accent went over with producers when he first read for the part.

He recalled: ''I went home that evening, and my wife said, 'How'd it go?' I went, 'I kind of did this.' And I showed her and she went, 'Oh, you f***ed that one up, didn't you?' Thank God they went for it.''

Bale - who starred in Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' trilogy between 2005 and 2012 - also revealed that he adopted the gruff voice because he felt ridiculous standing in a latex Batman costume and wanted to give the character some weight.

He told MTV News: ''I got there. They put me in [former Batman] Val Kilmer's suit. It didn't even fit properly and I stood in it and I went, 'I feel like an idiot.' What kind of guy walks around dressed like a bat, and is then going to go, 'Hello, how are you? Just ignore that I'm dressed as a bat.'

''I went 'I can't do this in a normal voice. I have to become a beast in order to sell this to myself.' ''

With the British actor now retiring his Batsuit, 'Argo' star Ben Affleck will take over the Batman role in the upcoming 'Man of Steel' sequel and Bale thinks his successor should find his own voice for the role.

He added: ''The voice ain't for everybody. Ben's obviously going to have to do his own thing, but it was the only way that I could find how to get into that and to justify wearing the fricking Batsuit.''

That fact was shown in person at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 where some of the most beloved “Batman” writers were on hand to celebrate thee Dark Knight’s 75th Anniversary. Among the questions fielded by the prestigious panel was one asking which, if any, film or director had captured the character as they would hop ...

Jul 25 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

It only took “three movies, ten video games, and 80 television episodes” by one director’s count, but the scene-stealing penguins from Madagascar are finally getting their own movie this fall. And based on what we saw at DreamWorks Animation’s Penguins of Madagascar Comic-Con panel on Thursday, they certainly deserve it. Directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith and star/producer Tom McGrath were on h ...

Comic-Con 2014: Cumberbatch talks Doctor Strange

Jul 25 2014 12:04am CDT | Source: Total Film

  Benedict Cumberbatch has addressed rumours of being cast as Doctor Strange… sort of.  Making his Comic-Con debut to promote Penguins Of Madagascar, he answered a question about which superhero he’d like to play with “Nurse Normal”, quickly adding "that was a joke on Doctor Strange."   Before any further teasing of his possible involvement with Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme, he decided the cape he’d most like to don would be Batman’s.   John Malkovich, in case you’re interest ...

The Scientific Secret Behind Batman's Hidden Identity Revealed

Jul 18 2014 11:31am CDT | Source: movie pilot

In the superhero world, there are levels of how effective various alter-ego and costume disguises really are. For example, we have to suspend our sense of disbelief fairly majorly to believe that no one at the Daily Planet has ever figured out Clark Kent - the mild mannered, bespectacled journalist - is actually Superman. Meanwhile, several superheroes seem to get by with nothing but a bit of black eyeliner.Batman for example, is another hero who is frequently lampooned for his not ent ...

Last year gave us a fairly forgettable, if stylish, biblical tale in the shape of Darren Aronofsky's Noah, and now Ridley Scott is having his turn at souping up the Old Testament for the modern, pop-corn munching congregation.Exodus: Gods and Kings, which stars Christian Bale, tells the tale of Moses as he lead the exodus of the Israelites out of Egypt and into their 'Promised Land'.
