Back in September we got our first look at Christian Bale's audition for Batman Begins, with Bale sporting Val Kilmer's Batman Forever Batsuit, as well as a much more restrained Batgrowl, especially compared to what we got by the latter stages of The Dark Knight Trilogy. Now Bale has spoken about the audition process during a promotional interview with MTV for his next film Out of the Furnace, as well as revealing the reason why he adopted such a gravelly voice.

"I got there. They put me in Val Kilmer's suit. It didn't even fit properly, and I stood in it and I went 'I feel like an idiot.' What kind of guy walks around, dressed like a bat? And is then going to go 'Hello, how are you? Just ignore that I'm dressed as a bat.' Of course, he's meant to be doing this. »
