This all speculation right now,but a rumour surronding this guy that he will carry the touch as the new batman.

How do you feel?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#3 Posted by lilben42 (2487 posts) - - Show Bio

Depends on his performance as Bruce/Batman.

#4 Posted by Shavo (2061 posts) - - Show Bio

imo i don't like it he looks to young batman should be played by a 28+ year old

#5 Edited by War Killer (19473 posts) - - Show Bio

First off...who is he? Second, do you have a credible source for this rumor?

#6 Edited by Jayc1324 (5046 posts) - - Show Bio

Where's the rumor from? And he looks ok honestly. Looks like a Bruce wayne in the second photo, not the first

If Snyder and Goyer feel he is the Bat for their story then i trust them, Cavil paid off.

#8 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (5585 posts) - - Show Bio

What's his name?

#9 Posted by flameboy298 (600 posts) - - Show Bio

@rulerofthisuniverse: tyler hoechlin

I'd much prefer Matt Bomer or Richard Madden,Ryan Gosling,Jensen Ackles,Karl Urban,Scott Adkins but thats just me getting my hopes up...

@flameboy298: Thanks. I went through his stuff and haven't seen anything in it, but he doesn't really look like Bruce Wayne.....

#12 Edited by entropy_aegis (13551 posts) - - Show Bio

Too young and resembles Cavill too much imo.

#13 Edited by War Killer (19473 posts) - - Show Bio

I can see him as Batman and Bruce Wayne, though I don't know of his acting skills.

#14 Posted by Arkhamc1tizen (2099 posts) - - Show Bio

no no no

Also put his name out there to play the role

I have no problem with them casting younger. For one thing, Bruce didn't go from 8 to 30, he was young at one point.

The other reason though is that I feel a young, impetuous, impulsive Batman is far more likely to have an initial throw-down with Superman than the seasoned veteran. We can understand an inexperienced Batman fearing the "alien god", but an older, wiser Batman would know to look deeper.

True but I hope they don't turn it Smallville or Arrow, MoS was very like teenage angst movie, I don't want that.

That feels like a gross oversimplification O_o

@fadetoblackbolt: I know but I simply didn't like MoS' portrayal of Superman and any character other than Faora and Jor-El and Snyder's isn't good at developing characters.

He always felt more like Hal Jordan.

Baseless rumor like a week after the movie is announced? I'll take it with a grain of salt

#22 Posted by TDK_1997 (13659 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't like how he looks much.I don't think he will look good in the Bat costume but it is good for directors to cast younger actors.

That's exactly my main problem, unless they want to do a live-action adaptation of Jim Lee's Superman and Batman that is, heh.

Yeah I want them to get an actor who doesn't look like Cavill's cousin.

He's looks too young.

#31 Edited by deaditegonzo (3329 posts) - - Show Bio

I sort of like the casting, partially because it does remind me of the Jim Lee style haha. I will say, with Cavhill as Supes and this guy as the Bat, the blondish dude above would KILL it as Hal. And someone else posted a promising Green Arrow. The only question is, could they find a good female to work with these guys (As Wonder Woman)?

#32 Posted by Knightfall225 (1113 posts) - - Show Bio

Tyler Hoechlin is actually a pretty good actorin teen wolf. He has a personallity similar to bats

#33 Edited by Commander_Kane (715 posts) - - Show Bio

@supreme_marvel: Yes!! He has the voice, the body, that charm, and his persona as dean in supernatural is so bruce wayne-esk. Idk who could do it better than ackles. And lets not forget, that strong jaw that'd fit perfectly for the cowl!

#34 Posted by ComicStooge (9574 posts) - - Show Bio

Ugh, no thanks to Jensen Ackles.

#35 Edited by Commander_Kane (715 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicstooge: He has the qualifications. He's talented, his character in supernatural lost both of his parents (which lead to becoming somewhat of a superhero), he meets the age qualification, he can play a dark character, he has that rich boy charm, he's athletic. He'd be great in my opinion, and deserves his chance on the big screen. He would've been picked for cap if supernatural didnt have him so busy at the time.

Well, I'm glad you're a fan of the idea.

I personally just don't see it.

Depends on his acting skills, he has the looks, at least in the second picture.

Also put his name out there to play the role

Wow he looks about as much like Bruce Wayne as he looks like Joseph Stalin. This would be a disaster.
