Actor Regrets Turning Down Batman Role IN BATMAN BEGINS

In a recent interview with Playboy, actor Josh Hartnett talked about having met with Christopher Nolan regarding Batman Begins only to turn down the role - a move he now considers a mistake.

"I learned my lesson when [writer-director] Christopher Nolan and I talked about Batman. I decided it wasn’t for me. Then he didn’t want to put me in The Prestige. They not only hired their Batman for it, they also hired my girlfriend at the time," said Hartnett, speaking of Scarlett Johansson. 

"That’s when I realized relationships were formed in the fire of that first Batman film and I should have been part of the relationship with this guy Nolan, who I felt was incredibly cool and very talented. I was so focused on not being pigeonholed and so scared of being considered only one thing as an actor. I should have thought, Well, then, work harder, man. Watching Christian Bale go on to do so many other things has been just awesome. I mean, he’s been able to overcome that. Why couldn’t I see that at the time?"

Hartnett did go on to star in comic book films Sin City and 30 Days of Night.
