Guys sign this petition if you want to see Scott Adkins play Batman in the up coming Superman/Batman film.

http://www.change.org/petitions/warner-bros-dc-comics-make-scott-adkins-the-next-batman

If Scott Adkins is on your top 5 list of who you want to play Batman please sign the petition.

Leave a comment to why you want Adkins to be Batman, or if you want to see someone else.

In the video it says Tyler Hoechlin from teen wolf is being considered for Batman, which I find ridiculous if it's true..

Scott can do it. WB, give him the chance.

#3 Posted by MonsterStomp (16112 posts) - - Show Bio

I still question if he can pull of a billionaire that gets a lot of publicity..

#4 Edited by ccraft (5068 posts) - - Show Bio

@monsterstomp: TDK Trilogy didn't really show that, I'm sure he can if they did it.

Anyways the guy is famous, I'm sure the guy had paparazzi follow him before.

Also if you guys don't mind using #AdkinsForBatman for twitter or Facebook. Write a message to @ZackSnyder

#AdkinsForBatman @ZackSnyder

@ccraft: Has Scott even expressed interest in doing Batman?

#6 Posted by ccraft (5068 posts) - - Show Bio

@monsterstomp: yes, under the comments of the video I posted it said this

UPDATE:

Wow! This certainly blew up! Even the REAL Scott Adkins shared my video on both his official Facebook AND his official Twitter! That's such an honor! But the fight's not over yet! Keep sharing the hashtag as listed above! We, the fans, can make a change!

@monsterstomp: I'm gonna message Zack Snyder #AdkinsForBatman everyday lol

I hope Snyder knows Adkins wants to be Batman, that would be cool. Better choice than Tyler Hoechlin.

@ccraft: Well, then this needs to be bumped.

We must not let teen wolf ruin the Batman!

I'm down, give the guy a shot. Worst case scenario, have him do all the fight scenes for the actor playing him.

@battle_forum_junkie: That would be the worst thing ever :l

My sister likes teen wolf and she doesn't even want him to play Batman.

Him doing the stuns would be cool, but worst case scenario he isn't in it at all!! :(

I just want to point out (not to spite your efforts or anything)...

But given the fact that WB announced Bats/Supes movie for 2015, and them wanting to start filming in spring of 2014 - I am guessing the following

  • The script is probably close to done all ready. Maybe not the final draft, but at least a first or 2nd draft of the script.
  • They probably all ready know who they want to play Batman. Remember - whoever they pick is probably going to have to spend up to 6 months (like Cavill did) bulking up for the role which would bring us to Feburary of 2014. Given that time frame...they probably all ready know who the guy is. Or at least have it narrowed down to few guys.

So yeah. Good luck to your petition and everything...but imo its quite likely they all ready have Batman casted.

#16 Posted by ccraft (5068 posts) - - Show Bio

@fallschirmjager: It's not my petition, anyways your probably right, they might have already pick their Batman. I doubt this petition will do anything, but thats not the point. I signed to show my support for Scott Adkins to play Batman. I really do hope they pick Adkins.

#18 Edited by ccraft (5068 posts) - - Show Bio

@glasstrotter: Some people do, I don't see it though. Anyways it's been rumored that DC is longing for an older Batman so Josh Brolin might be cast. As long as he bulks up I'm okay with it.

Don't see why Batman needs to be more old experienced though. I really want Adkins to play Batman! He would be the most complete Batman in the history of Batman films.

#22 Posted by dbatdog (532 posts) - - Show Bio

hire Christian Bale, he's 40 next year, plus he has an actual experience being a Batman......come to think about it, this is really making me sad :(

@innervenom123: It's really just to show your support for Adkins, and that the individual whose signed the petition wants him to be Batman. There's nothing wrong with that. You know the petition has gotten almost double signatures within the past 3 days. I doubt it will get to 10,000 because Adkins isn't that well known, but if more and more people share this link and get it out there to the masses, more people will know why Adkins should have the role of Batman. Scott Adkins himself even tweeted the link and posted it on Facebook.

He looks freaking awesome in the Bat-Suit! And that is how the bat suit should look.

Hate to be the party pooper but petitions never work. Like at all. Not on issues such as this to be certain.

#28 Posted by ccraft (5068 posts) - - Show Bio

@lvenger: dudes! we are just showing our support for Adkins being Batman, some petitions do work if a lot of people sign it or if it gets a lot of attention. Just like this petition Make Dredd a Sequel Karl Urban won't shut up about it :P

This petition want do anything but get peoples attention, imo anyways.

What is he in?

#30 Posted by Oscuro (730 posts) - - Show Bio

@rulerofthisuniverse: Expendables 2, Undisputed 2 and 3, Ninja, Metal Hurlant chronicles are some that feature him as either a lead or a prominent role. he has been in other films as a henchmen and whatnot. The man is truly legit

Yeah a lot of people have the notion that if your a MA actor, you can't act. I don't think they've seen any of his movies, his a good actor imo, he hasn't in much BIG movies like Bale, but he's been in a few like Expendables 2 and his had a lot of movies were he was the lead. In that movie he fought Statham it was pretty cool.

He wasn't anything special in Expendables 2. We just know he was a ruthless dude any actor should be able to pull off.

@ccraft: Feel free to petition but need I remind you of the failed comic book petitions in the past? Like the one to save Young Justice and Green Lantern TAS? Or what about a petition for a new Wonder Woman series? All were woefully ignored. The decision as to who is the next Batman is in Warner Bros' hands, not ours. Which is a shame really.

@monsterstomp: It would still need it to be more comic-book-y. I don't want an entire Black/Grey suit like in the Nolan Batman series.

No. Scott Adkins is a martial artist and bodybuilder, not an actor (no, being in a film or two does not count).

you don't got to Expendables thinking your going to get a good story, at least I didn't. I went to see it for the action. 1st one was better though.

Yeah I know, but it was cool seeing him in the same movie with Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, Van Damme and Statham.
