[Movies] Christopher Nolan Wanted Heath Ledger to Play Batman
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.30.2012



In a recent chat with The Film Society of Lincoln Center, Christopher Nolan discussed the Batman films. During the chat, he revealed that he had actually wanted Heath Ledger to play Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins, and that they had preliminary talks. Here is a short recap of that talk…

"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."
