It's hard to imagine anyone other than Christian Bale as Christopher Nolan's Batman, but as we all know, lots of other folks were up for the role at the time. One intrepid YouTube-er has taken it upon himself to imagine how the audition process might have gone, and put together this hilarious fake audition tape showing everyone from Clint Eastwood to Adam Sandler reading for the title role.
Courtesy of Alex Farnham of Dam It's Good 808, the tape features some pretty spot-on, over-the-top impressions, and it's absolutely hilarious to see some of these folks try to don the cowl.
Check out the auditions below, and let us know what you think—could any of these guys have filled the Bat-suit?
My favorite would have to be Jack Sparrow. Who stands out to you?
