Personal Quote:

[on casting Batman] "Batman is a marvelously complex character-somebody who has absolute charm and then, just like that, can turn it into ice-cold ruthlessness. There are very few actors who can do that, and Christian is one of them." See more »

Trivia:

Was inspired to create the "Dark Knight" trilogy after viewing Richard Donner's Superman Films. See more »

Trademark:

The original scores of his films usually play over most of the film, or one piece of music will play over many small scenes, as if they are edited in a montage; there are few moments in his films when there is no music playing in the background. See more »
