Cillian Murphy Originally Auditioned To Play Batman for Christopher Nolan's 'Batman Begins'!

Cillian Murphy took a trip down memory lane while making an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday night (March 10).

The 43-year-old actor was asked by Seth about originally auditioning to play Batman for Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Begins in 2005.

Christian Bale ended up with the role while Cillian still starred in the film Dr. Jonathan Crane aka The Scarecrow.

“Well yes, amongst many other actors I did. I never thought I was material for it, I think it was obvious that Christian Bale was gonna be Batman at that time,” Cillian recalled. “It was clear, he’s such a magnificent Batman and Bruce Wayne. I did get to, I think it was the Val Kilmer suit, to try on. Your voice just drops a couple of octaves.”

Cillian Murphy about talked about the new season of Peaky Blinders and being cast in the anticipated, A Quiet Place Part II.
