by Matthew Price Published: September 23, 2013

The The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Box Set, set for Sept. 24 release, contains a bonus feature of Christian Bale’s original tryout for Batman.   You can see a portion of the test, in which Bale wears Val Kilmer’s Batsuit from “Batman Forever,” above.   Bale read with future Lois Lane Amy Adams in the test, with Adams reading dialogue from Rachel Dawes, the role eventually played by Katie Holmes in “Batman Begins” and Maggie Gyllenhaal in “The Dark Knight.”

What do you think of Bale’s tryout?
