Quaid in Batman?

09.16.2003

The exciting news came last week that Christian Bale will star as Bruce Wayne in BATMAN. Now that the major casting is out of the way, speculation has turned to who might be cast alongside Bale and, considering the plot is kept under tight security, what roles might they be playing. Last week Ain't It Cool News "confirmed" through their sources that Ra's Al Ghul was involved in the film and likely too was the Scarecrow. Now we get further confirmation from Batman-on-Film, whose longtime scooper asserts that "Ra's is indeed in this film" but goes on to say he wasn't sure to what extent and that the Scarecrow too is involved. As far as other characters, Commissioner Gordon is expected to play a juicy role and immediately casting speculation has begun on who would play the role. BOF also reports that Dennis Quaid's name has come up numerous times in conjunction with the Gordon role. Has he even talked to Warner Bros about the part? That remains unclear but it seems the studio is looking for a Dennis Quaid-type actor and if you want his type, why not just get him? He's got a decent resemblence to the Gordon from the comics. One final BATMAN note: the film will reportedly concentrate more on Bruce Wayne and his becoming the Dark Knight as opposed to just having him in cape and cowl kicking butt. That's likely where the London setting rumors came from - Wayne's travels around the world before returning to Gotham to become Batman. The project seems to be shaping up very nicely and more details are leaking out no matter how close the WB keeps this to their chest. Expect more casting details soon as the film preps for an early 2004 start date.
