Christopher Nolan Wanted Heath Ledger to Play Batman
 

 

Everyone loves Oscar winner Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight, right? Well, if Bat-director Christopher Nolan originally had his way then the late actor would have starred in Batman Begins ... as Bruce Wayne!

Nolan was the featured guest at The Film Society of Lincoln Center this week to talk about his Batman trilogy and Gothamist (no, it's not a Batman fan site) has the skinny on what he had to say there:

"Nolan originally sat down with Heath Ledger for a preliminary talk about possibly playing Bruce Wayne; Ledger said at the time that 'he'd never do this kinda film.' But when time came to cast The Joker, Ledger had warmed up to it. 'He had a vision for something,' Nolan said. He added that Ledger 'didn't like to work too much,' so he was 'hungry' for the role when he was approached. Ledger was also cast before the movie was completely written, so he had a long time to prepare for it."

Well he wouldn't have delved so far into the role of the Joker, which would have resulted in him most likely not dying in real life.



Still, though, we would have never seen that epic Joker performance.

Pretty sure he had more problems that just delving too deep into a performance

I'd love to see BX's reaction in 2003-04 if it had been announced that Heath Ledger was cast as Batman.

Guarantee there would have been 10 thousand hate threads.

n*ggas would have been all like

"You mean that n*gga from 'A Knights Tale' and '10 Things I Hate About You' ? "

Not to mention "Brokeback Mountain" came out that same year.

--

Also, I think Bale could have easily pulled off a great Joker.. He's just as great a method actor as Heath was..


Would have been interesting to see, in both cases.. Guess we'll never know
