We already got a peek at Christian Bale’s Batman audition, and new we have our first look at Anne Hathaway’s tryout for Catwoman, as well as another actor who almost donned the cowl.

It’s intriguing to get a look at Anne Hathaway in the early days of development, and these screen grabs from her screen test definitely has her looking the part. Though fans were skeptical about her casting, she proved most of the haters wrong, and it’s easy to see what Christopher Nolan saw when he made the call.

Even cooler? A pic from Cillian Murphy’s (who would eventually play Scarecrow) audition for Batman Begins, when he was on the short list to play the Dark Knight himself. Just looking at the shot of him in the Bat-suit, it’s hard to imagine that baby-faced chin invoking fear in the hearts of criminals. Sure, he’s a good actor — but the dude is a stretch for the part.

Let us know what you think about the pics below, and pick up The Dark Knight Trilogy Blu-ray for more Bat-goodies.
