I don’t know half of those but the ones I do know, pass. I mean Dylan O’Brien? He’s gotta be 5’9 150 soaking wet.

Still trying to make Armie Hammer happen? Guess he’d be fine.

Only if there are multiple gay sex scenes.

And does it really matter? No one is ever topping Bale. That ship has sailed. Just like no one is ever topping my avatar.

Keaton >>>>> Bale. 

This.  The Nolan Batman Films were the best of them all...but Bale wasn't all that special as Batman IMO.  I'll take Keaton over him...

 

But in the end my favorite interpretation of Batman, AND the Joker will always be the Animated Series versions(Conroy and Luke Skywalker himself).

I like the Jon Hamm idea way better than the actual list.  Are they planning to make a young Batman movie or something?  

They might have to try to get one of the Marvel actors to defect.  Chris Evans has his contract running out after the next Avengers, right?  What about RDJ and Hemsworth?   Yeah, they’re already known for other superhero roles, but the alternative seems to be a bunch of guys who should be playing tweens on a CW series, the shortest manlet guys (other than Dinklage) from Game of Thrones, and Armie Hammer.

So ... yeah.  Maybe they should ask The Rock.

Idris Elba

Mahersala Ali

Kevin Hart

Just to get that out of the way. 

To be fair, all of those except for Kevin Hart are excellent suggestions.

Agreed, Bale held serve, and that's no small accomplishment when the other actors were Ledger, Caine, Freeman and Oldman. Part of it is that the Batman movies became "Batman Presents the Villian" and good or bad, the villains dominate the movies, with Batman being almost a passive character. Even in the terrible ones, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey, Uma Thurman, and Arnold were the main characters. 

They need an unknown who's got some size, acting ability, and is in the right age range. There aren't that many action actors under fifty, now, that aren't tied to a super hero already.

Guess it makes too much sense to make a Dark Knight Returns type movie with Keaton.

Oh man that would be so good...provided they got the right Robin and Joker actors(if they do that version at least.)

A female robin? No way we're ready for that

Problem would be, much like on Surly, people would think they're trying to be more inclusive and PC by adding a female Robin...without knowing it was a girl in the source material.

the fact that male actors aren’t being considered for catwoman shows how hypocritical hollywood really is.

Keaton was great and every bit as good or better from an acting standpoint (wasn't quite as believable from a physical stand point).  Bale is good but it's more about Nolan's vision.  At least Bale approximated the physicality needed although I thought he was a bit lame in 3.

1.  Make sure he's fucking American.  The Brits throw fits when an American gets brought up for Bond or Harry Potter or whatever.  Superman, Batman, Spiderman, etc.  Those guys should be American actors, IMO.  

2.  Ensure he physically meets the role.  Kitt Harrington?  WTF?  He's like 5'5".  Logan Lerman?  He's like 5'9" and 135 lbs.  Jack O'Connell is around 5'8".  Most of the top six on the list are terrible ideas and short, smallish guys.  That's fucking terrible.  Bruce Wayne/Batman when he puts on the mask is fully formed from a physical standpoint.  He doesn't grow into the fucking role.  

3.  Getting a fucking adult, not a tweener.  Matt Bomer would be fine if he could put on about 35 lbs of muscle although a bit small.  Hammer has shown some acting chops and has the physique, he'd be interesting.  Lone Ranger almost killed his young career, would he put on another mask?  I love John Hamm, a decade ago but that's not what they're going for and he's 47.  Gyllenhall is the right age but a little small and he's in the new Spider-man.  May be too much Superhero fatigue.  Jack Huston is a little small but right age and edge.  Like to see what Chris Pine could have done in the role, but he's already in the DC universe.  Bradley Cooper?  Jensen Ackles if you want a pretty boy?  Lee Pace?  I feel like Hammer is the obvious choice so they'll fuck it up.

That is Shia motherfucking LaBouef, good sir.

And I don't want him cast as Batman. Referencing probably his most well known performance art piece.

Isn't Dylan O'Brien busy being the head of the Aryan Nation?  Or was that Dylan Murphy?
