Well the testing process on this kind of performance, it’s not about acting ability or chemistry or any of those things, it’s being able to project this extraordinary iconography, really, for me inside its visual iconography. Christian somehow had figured this out before the screen test that you could not give a normal performance, you could not give an ordinary performance, you had to project massive energy through this costume you know in order to not question the costume. So it’s about filling in a voice and I think that Christian voice was a big part of the impression he made on the test. He had decided Batman needed to have a different voice from Bruce Wayne, that he needed to put on a voice. That supported the visual appearance of the character and explained why you couldn’t recognize him from his voice. It was pretty logically thought out.” - Christopher Nolan on Christian Bale’s Batman Begins audition.
