8. Bill Murray
Holy Ghostbusters, Batman! You mean to tell me that the comedic legend, Bill Murray, was in talks to play the Dark Knight? Well, it’s not all bad. You see, Ivan Reitman had a comedic Batman film in the works and wanted Murray for the role, but the project was eventually dropped for unknown reasons. Murray was also briefly considered for the part in the Batman (1989). What is it with Tim Burton pulling up all of the strange names for this film? Still better than George Clooney‘s take though.
