Cillian Murphy reflects on his Batman audition: 'I never considered myself the right fit'

Cillian Murphy's stellar performance in Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer is earning him a lot of respect and fame as an actor. Cillian recently recalled losing the role of Batman in Nolan's trilogy.

Cillian starred as Dr Jonathan Crane ( The Scarecrow) in three Batman movies including Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, whereas the lead role of Batman was played by Christian Bale.

Oppenheimer star recalled the incident of losing out on the role and said that he never considered himself fit for the Batman role.

In an interview with GQ, Cillian Murphy said, "I never consider myself the right physical specimen for Batman. For me, it was always going to be Christian Bale."

The Peaky Blinders alum added, "Christian Bale's performance in Batman was a stunning interpretation of his role."
