After his mother and father are murdered by a mugger, however, Wayne grows into an impudent young man, full of rage and bent on retribution until encouraged by his childhood sweetheart, Rachel Dawes, to search for answers beyond his own personal vendettas. Wayne eventually finds discipline in the Far East under the tutelage of Henri Ducard, a member of the mysterious League of Shadows who guides him in the study of martial arts -- and the ways in which an ordinary man can hone his senses to an almost superhuman acuity. After seven years away from Gotham, Wayne returns, determined to bring peace and safety back to the city. With the help of his faithful manservant, Alfred Pennyworth, and Lucius Fox, a scientist at his late father's corporation, Wayne develops a secret identity as Batman, a masked fighter for justice. But when a shady psychiatrist joins forces with the criminal underworld, Wayne realizes that putting an end to their nefarious plans will be very difficult indeed. Batman Begins also features Gary Oldman as Lt. James Gordon and Tom Wilkinson as the crime boss Carmine Falcone.

Trivia Batman Begins

Josh Hartnett was offered the role of Batman in 'Batman Begins' but he turned it down. Andy and Lana Wachowski were interested in directing 'Batman Begins' but they turned down the project to focus on the two 'Matrix' sequels. During the 'Batman Begins' shooting in Chicago, they wanted to be so careful with the Batmobile that it was really slow. They caused a lot of traffic jams, that were reported in the TV news of Chicago.
