So I read online that Jensen Ackles was interviewed at Comic-Con 2013 about his interest in Batman after the Man of Steel 2 announcement. He even showed up wearing a batman shirt lol. But when interviewed, he noted that he's very interested, though he won't hold his breath. Which is understandable, since he was so close to becoming Captain America over Chris Evans. (Who was fine for the role, so I'm not hating.)
I just think that Jensen finally needs to shine. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a Supernatural fan. I've been shooting for this guy since I seem him on Smallville to be something big. Though his character in Supernatural is what drew to beileve he'd be a great choice for Batman. And I have my reasons.
Firstly, the guy has the voice. As most of you may know, he did voice Jason Todd in Batman: Under the Red Hood. And when you listen.. It has a very brutish-rough tone to it, similar to Kevin Conroy in a way. Yet he can kind've mellow it out a bit, but still let you know he's serious. Much like Bruce Greenwood.
Secondly, he's at the age requirements. Jensen Ackles is 35 years old. Which is just 5 years over Henry Cavill. Which is ok, because respectively Batman should be a little older than superman. So you have to guys that can carry a franchise, and still look as good as ever 10 years down the road.
Next, look at the similarities of Bruce Wayne and Jensens character Dean on Supernatural. Dean Winchester loses his mother at a very young age, and his father is mostly absent in his life even following to his eventual death. Both of these events made an impact on his life as a protector. To relinquish evil, so that noone would ever have to go through what he did. Much like Bruce Wayne, and his reasons for becoming Batman in a sense. You really see Dean Winchester go through some dark stages through its 9 years. Making his trust very hard to earn when it comes to his teammates, even his own brother. Much like Batman and his Justice League commrads.
Next I want to speak of his Bruce Wayne. As you can tell from any role Ackles has ever played in..the female crowd just can't resist him. And let be honest, he's a good looking dude. So is Bruce Wayne. He's a charmer, much like Bruce Wayne. He's believable as a rich playboy. And could honestly could be just as good, if not better than Bales portrayal of Bruce. (Which would be hard but who knows.)
He's in great shape, he's no stranger to action, he has great range, he has the chin (because every great Batman needs a strong chin), he's young enough to lead a franchise for many years to come, and honestly I could see him as the dark knight. Now if you don't see it, that's fine. No need for any hate comments...I just think he was molded to play this character. And I really hope he gets his shot at being an A-Lister soon.
