Cillian Murphy as Jonathan Crane / Scarecrow in Batman Begins (2005)

Dr. Jonathan Crane / Scarecrow appears in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy, portrayed by Cillian Murphy. This version wears a burlap sack with a built-in rebreather that doubles as a gas mask for his fear experiments. Murphy explained that the relatively simple mask, as opposed to the full scarecrow costume seen in the comics, was utilized because he "wanted the Scarecrow to avoid the Worzel Gummidge look, because he's not a very physically imposing man—he's more interested in the manipulation of the mind and what that can do".[26]
