Hot Anglo-American director Christopher Nolan is directing the latest incarnation of Warner Bros.' superhero franchise, which stars Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader.

Wilkinson plays Falcone, one of the leading crime figures in Gotham City, while Hauer portrays Earle, a business contemporary of Bruce Wayne's murdered father who has designs on the Wayne corporate empire.

Also emigrating to Gotham are a slew of stars.

James Gordon; and Ken Watanabe as the villainous Ra's Al Ghul.

Wilkinson was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in "In the Bedroom," and for an Emmy for his work in HBO's "Normal."
