Thats Y imo an unknown not so famous actor should play the part.
Given that WB announced this movie for 2015 fairly confidently, something tells me they have all ready an outline of the movie done and have been working on it (probably) even before Man of Steel was released. They may not know who is their guy yet, but I get the feeling that they probably have it narrowed down.
All I know is its going to be a long 2 years for me while I wait for this movie to come out. Its such a huge deal.
If they screw this movie up, you can pretty much forget about a DC Cinematic universe for the next 10-20 years. People are never going to forgive them.
But if...if they get this movie right...there's no way to predict how successful this movie and their universe going forward could be. I mean...Its Batman and Superman...in the same movie! The two most iconic (and yes they are, sorry if you don't like them) superheros of all time in 1 movie? I mean who's inner nerd hasnt' been doing back flips from the moment this movie was announced? Mine isn't going to stop until I'm sitting in the theater with a coke and popcorn, watching it unfold.
Whoever they pick for Batman...just don't screw it up ;)
Whoever said Karl Urban is a genius, he'd be bad as hell for the role, plus I know he is a fan of comics to begin with so he'd most def take the role a 100%, he isn't the guy who bitches about too little face time on screen (talking about Dredd yes) so now we can actually get a Batman movie with Batman appearing more than for 10 minutes.
exactly look at cap, thor, iron man, hawkeye can't even keep his glasses on it's insaine
If you think Christian Bale was "not so famous" before Batman you are dead wrong. He was a huge deal in the actor world long before Nolanverse.
@ccraft: Dude you have me convinced now. I just seen Universal Soldier: A Day of Reckoning and Scott was a killer! He can do just about anything. His acting is average though. Few movie martial artists can act. Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Jason Statham are good. Scott Adkins and Tony Jaa are average.
Scott Adkins is better suited than most of the contenders.. I mean Tyler Hoechlin and Ryan Gosling?? Some fangirl fanservice right there.. I mean, I could see them as Bruce Wayne maybe, but not as Batman. Also Gosling's chin would look weird with the cowl on. Overall I prefer unknown actors to get superhero roles.
If not Scott Adkins and his badassery, I would definitely support Jeffrey Donovan!
I'd pick so many actors over Scott Adkins. All Scott is, is better physically fit for the portrayal of Batman, sadly that doesn't cut it. How many martial artists besides Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Jason Statham do you see as well known? Not many. Scott doesn't have that much of a fan base.
Josh Brolin is the top contender thus far from what I've heard. I believe he could do justice to the role too. It's not like he can't get in 6 months of training in to look like Superman. It is impressive that Scott is a natural fighter, but anyone can be a fighter, its really in the camera work and fight choreography. I'm sure in Scott's films there is some choreography happing there. So what is really the difference? Scott looks like Batman, he isn't as good an actor than George Clooney or Christian Bale or Josh Brolin for that matter. I'm not saying I'd hate for Scott to be Batman though. I think he could be good, but he wouldn't be my first option.
Jon Hamm is the correct answer.
Barring that, there's a ton of actors that could do the role justice: Ryan Gosling, [the formerly rumored] Armie Hammer... Hell, as long as they stick to the 'picking an older actor' for the role shtick, I think they'll do fine.
heres my concern can an older actor keep up being batman well into his 50s? I mean its not like RDJ with iron man that he's about to be 50 iron man isn't at peak strength batman has to be. Also if there was a batman why no mention of him in mos2? Iastly they have to have chemistry because they may start fighting but will eventually be pals i cant see the worlds best superheroes where one is more of a father figure instead of a friend.
@jeanespinosa21: this is one of the best comments on the board. i also hate the idea of trying to make Batman a father figure. and i hatte when pople bring up the fact that RDJ is 50 becuase iironman is nothing like Batman. Batman has to fighr and do be agile. all ironman does is punch and shoot lasers. so it doesnt matter what condition RDJ is in
