Along with Chrisitan Bale, Cillian Murphy, and many others, Nolan had initially approached Heath Ledger to discuss playing Bruce Wayne/Batman in his 2005 film Batman Begins Ledger took the meeting, but immediately told the director that he wasn’t interested Nolan explained in a Q&A

“He was quite gracious about it, but he said, 'I would never take a part in a superhero film.' "

Shortly After the release of Batman Begins, Heath Ledger changed his mind and started to pursue and signed onto the role of the Joker months before there was even an actual script.

“I explained to him what I wanted to do with Batman Begins,” Nolan said, “and I think maybe he felt I achieved it.”

Tom Hiddleston originally auditioned for Thor but was later beat out by Chris Hemsworth at least we got to see his audition it is quite funny. Producer Craig Kyle explains how Hiddleston’s auditions went.

“At first Tom came in for Thor. He trained. He came in. He was ripped. He did a tremendous job, but he wasn’t Thor.”

Before Cillian Murphy was cast as Jonathan Crane/The Scarecrow in Batman Begins the actor screen-tested for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Here’s what Nolan had to say about Murphy’s screen-test:

“We also had Cillian Murphy screen-test for Batman. He wasn’t right for that part in the way that Christian was. But the performance was incredible and everybody took huge notice of it while we were shooting it and while we watched the tests. I then was able to go to the studio and ask to put him in as Crane, as Scarecrow.”

Prior to being cast as Harry Osborn in Spider-Man James Franco screen tested for the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man he would end up losing out to Toby Maguire for the role. In an interview with Movies.com, Franco explained how extensive his auditions were, and how Raimi offered him the part of Harry.

“People bring up the fact that I auditioned for Peter Parker and I tested, and it was huge test. It must have been thousands of dollars just for this test. There were cranes and sets and they kept me waiting about six weeks. And then Tobey got the role and…I mean nobody believes when I say that I think he’s perfect for the role. I think he has done a better job than I would do in that role. But after the test, after Tobey got it, I guess Sam [Raimi] and I got along well enough that he wanted me in the movie. And as far as I know he didn’t audition anybody else for Harry. He just called me up and asked me if I wanted to play that role.”

Director Jon Favreau when first having to choose a actor to play Iron Man had a short this and it seems that Sam Rockwell was on that list The director explained to the LA Times.

"He was one of the actors I was looking at for Tony Stark. There was some things he would bring to the role that would have been great. Sam is very charismatic and when I was looking at the character there was a list and he had a spot on it, which might have surprised some people. Robert surprised some people, too, though, and now he is Tony Stark, he owns that role. Sam would have come up with interesting and different things."
