Christopher Nolan returns as director, along with actors Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman; Heath Ledger is the Joker, while Aaron Eckhart will play D.A.

When Batman Begins first came out, I thought that it was a prequel to all the other Batman movies. When I found out that it was an entirely different series, I was excited that I would get to hear Christian Bales' awesome Batman voice again!
