With Warner Bros. Pictures' The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray hitting the stores later today, brace yourself for this incredibly bit of awesomeness from the much-anticipated box set: Christian Bale auditioning for the role in Val Kilmer's old Batman outfit from Batman Forever, trying out his eventually infamous gruff voice, opposite Amy Adams (who later went on to become Lois Lane and working with Bale in the upcoming American Hustle) in the screen test role of Rachel Dawes.

Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the clip.


And for those that thought that auditioning in Val Kilmer's old batsuit is some kind of a perseverance tests in itself, every actor auditioning the role has to put on the get-up. Including Cillian Murphy, whom screen test footage will also be included in the box set (though not available online yet). While Murphy's portrayal did not earn him the title role, Nolan was impressed enough to cast him as Scarecrow instead.

Among other tidbits, it was also reportedly confirmed from the newly unveiled featurette that Gary Oldman was originally offered the role of Ra's Al Ghul but rejected the villainous role to take on the eventually critically acclaimed portrayal of Commissioner Gordon instead.

There are many more intriguing news on the box set over at Batman News, so do head over there to check them out. In the meantime, hit the jump to check out IGN's exclusive unboxing clip of the box set.
