The Next Batman

Recommended Posts

I forget who said it best about this (maybe Kevin Smith), but you're not casting Batman, you're casting Bruce Wayne.

To me, Jon Hamm would be great for it.

Good in Blade Runner and Drive.

 

Funny as hell in The Nice Guys. He can actually act and cover both sides of Wayne and Batman.

 

Would be too similar to Christian Bale, IMO. Ron Swanson for the win...

Why do we need another Batman?


I think this is a good question. Who cares who the actor is if DC is trying to fit square pegs into round holes. Do they want to make a Batman movie or do they want to make him fit into a universe with fucking Aquaman.

Absolutely correct. That's why Christian Bale is a bit overrated in that role...he obviously was great as Batman(despite the voice), but as Bruce Wayne didn't think he was the best(that's Keaton)

Agreed.  I liked The Dark Knight the best of all the Batman movies, but it was mostly about Ledger, the direction and the overall tone rather than Bale.  Bale was fine in those movies, but I didn’t really care for the conception of Bruce Wayne as a young guy and fanatical League of Shadows assassin type.   I like the character better as a middle aged damaged guy with a weird charm like Keaton’s version.

He said he would only do it if the La La Land director helmed the movie. Then he laughed.

Lee Pace

He could also bond with Robin.

But seriously, Lee Pace would kill it

How about Gene Chizek.

You know a Redford Batman with a Hanicap License plate on the Batmobile could be a fun new direction. Or Morgan Freeman as Bruce and Redford as Robin. 

The fight crime in Boca Raton.

If they go with a traditional Bruce Wayne, then he begins to be Batman in his mid-late 20's in most iterations.  25 from original comics.  Even if he's "grown" into the job with 7-8 years of experience, he's in his early 30's and this is reportedly the version DC is returning to after trying out Frank Miller's older Batman.  So the John Hamm's or Keanu Reeves (JFC) or Liev Schreiber suggestions are misplaced.  To give you an idea, Christian Bale had just turned 30 when he began production on Batman Begins.  The casting is probably going to be someone between 26-35 years old.  Oldest, will probably be late 30's.

Ok I put in the metrics above to get a list going (Male 26-35). No way to filter based on height. Currently sorted by some IMDB popularity metric.

https://www.imdb.com/search/name?birth_date=1984-01-01,1993-12-31&gender=male

I have no fucking idea who most of these people are and have a hard time seeing any of them producing anything I'd be interested in watching after growing up with Keaton and later enjoying Bale.

I like that you (using term loosely) have Haley Joel Osment and Joffery in there...... Gleeson quit acting or is taking a break, but was the kid in Batman Begins.

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

I agree with you but also remember that no one thought anyone would ever top Nicholson's joker.

He shoulda been Jack Reacher over wee Tom Cruise.

They have much more in common than most people know.

I actually meant to say that Kevin Durand should have been Jack Reacher.  For whatever that's worth. 

What about Nicholas Hoult as a younger Batman?

Keaton >>>>> Bale. 

Or batman beyond 



So this was floated on Kevin Smith’s podcast.

Let Michael Keaton play the old batman manning the cave alfred style and a new young actor play that role.
