“I have to return some videotapes.”
Batman may be a little pre-occupied at the videostore to properly defend the citizens of Gotham City from evil hijinks in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Dark Knight epic, as Christian Bale has been cast as Bruce Wayne.
Principal photography on the film is expected to begin in early 2004. The movie is written by David Goyer and Nolan, and will follow the early career of The Dark Knight.
Said Nolan, “What I see in Christian is the ultimate embodiment of Bruce Wayne. He has exactly the balance of darkness and light that we were looking for.”
