Cast This: Batman

08.10.2012by:

Long time no cast, huh?

The time has now come to cast a role that Christian Bale has fit so nicely. Yes, you guessed it (also helps if you read the title)-- BATMAN!

The WB might be looking to reboot the dark knight in 2016. Let's be honest here, I was not ready to cast a new Batman. It's sort of like breaking up with an ex. Eventually I'll move on, but I just need some time. I'm with Christopher Nolan's line of thinking on this one, "The great thing about Batman is he lives on for future generations to reinterpret." But if they decide to give the Bat another go in 2016, then why don't we pass on another origin story and pick up with Bruce Wayne at another time in his life?

When it comes to casting Batman, I think it all really depends on what storyline they decide to go with. But for now, let's just take a stab at it. Who would you like to see wearing the cowl? Is there someone that you had in mind before Bale was ever cast? Or someone you've always thought would be good in the role, but would never get the part?

Oh, and I'll beat you to it...Nathan Fillion.

RESULTS FROM PREVIOUS 'CAST THIS': ENCHANTRESS

1. Charlize Theron/Diane Kruger/Alice Eve/Diora Baird/Yvonne Strahovski

We have a big giant five-way...tie that is. If any of these ladies were chosen for the part of The Enchantress in THOR 2, then we would all be very lucky. Which of them best suits the character though? They all look the part. I think Theron might have them all beat with Kruger and Strahovski coming in a very close second. That sure is a nice lady collage though, isn't it?

Extra Tidbit: Why didn't I think of Yvonne Strahovski for Enchantress? Especially since she's on my "blonde girlfriends" list.

Depends...

I'd like to see them skip the traditional Batverse and do a Batman Beyond series instead. If that was the case, coincidentally, Joseph Gordon Levitt would make for a great Terry McGinnis. As for elderly Bruce Wayne? Clint Eastwood. Who else? Oh, you need someone else?

It's still way too early but it's going to happen...

I don't know, there's a lot of good actors I could imagine in this role. But none that really strikes me as an obvious choice. For now I might go with someone a little older, say Karl Urban or Ray Stevenson, since I don't want another origin story.

And please schmoes, don't cast the part based on looks.

If they were to do a young Bruce Wayne: Armie Hammer... we was due to play Batman for Justice League, but after the last few years I think he's worthy of donning the cape & cowl.

If they were to do an older Bruce Wayne series, It'd be really cool to see Michael Keaton come back as Bruce and probably someone like Ezra Miller as Terry McGinnis

No Keaton. He's sucks as an actor, and is too short and fat. Eastwood is the better casting choice for an old Bruce Wayne.

I was watching the season 5 finale of Mad Men the other night and one of the last scenes is Jon Hamm walking towards the camera with You Only Live Twice playing.
All I could think was Bruce Wayne/James Bond/Clark Kent, take your pick. I think he'd be a very good 'older' Bruce Wayne. He has the charisma and charm, and he's also a very good actor

Who cares about Batman - give us Pearce as the Riddler already

With the rumor of Ben Affleck directing a Justice League movie, am I the only one who thinks he might be able to pull it off? My other choices would be Hamm (perfect Bruce Wayne but maybe not Batman), Joel Edgerton, or I'd even love to see an little-known actor cast as Batman. I really just want to see Guy Pearce as the Riddler more than anything (or any villain for that matter.)

depends

if they were going with a younger Batman, at the start of his career, i'd go with Arnie Hammer

if they were going with an older batman, who has already established himself, Jon Hamm

As for Batman Beyond, Asa Butterfield. He's a qualified actor, looks the part, and by the time this movie does goes into production he'll be the right age. However, i think a Batman Beyond movie at this time is a really bad idea, no matter how much i loved the show

I think WB has a chance to take advantage of a really amazing opportunity and avoid a reboot while still keeping the timeline canonical AND sequential by first making a Dark Knight Returns movie and then a Batman Beyond movie. Here is my dream cast for each (POSSIBLE SPOILERS):
The Dark Knight Returns:
Bruce/Batman: Alec Baldwin or Michael Keaton or George Clooney (Hey, Batman and Robin wasn't his fault... I think he could do a wonderful job at playing a middle-aged, tired, begrudged

Robin: ChloŽ Moretz ( If you're going to bring in Robin, you might as well bring in one of the cooler versions)

Batman Beyond:
Bruce/ Old Batman: Clint Eastwood or Bryan Cranston
Terry/ Batman: Jay Baruchel or Daniel Radcliffe or Ryan Cartwright (I would say JGL, but he belongs as the new Batman/ Nightwing in Nolan's universe)
Joker: Bill Irwin (I think by the time a Batman Beyond movie was made, they could bring in an older Joker who is still trying to get a rise out of Bruce by toying with Terry)
I think all this Jon Hamm talk belongs with an older Superman... He's TOO much like the older Clark Kent audiences have yet to see.

Fassbender.

Clearly Fassbender. The man is an incredible talent, he's the perfect age, and he looks strikingly like the comic Bruce Wayne. He needs to be cold, calculated, stan-off-ish, no garbling under the mask and even sometimes a bit of a dick towards Alfred and whomever else. Just look at the guy in this picture, it screams Bruce.

[link]

This next part is where I might lose people though. An outside the box choice for Alfred in...Timothy Dalton. He's incredibly British, has the perfect look, is

This next part is where I might lose people though. An outside the box choice for Alfred in...Timothy Dalton. He's incredibly British, has the perfect look, is a great age (not too old like previous Alfred's). A refined Shakespearean actor and obviously well renowned for playing a super-spy. The man looks like he could handle himself if needs be, but not enough to outclass The Batman as well as having the ability to drop some fantastic dry witted comments.

[link]

And of course Bryan Cranston for Gordon. Not only is he a great actor, he's age appropriate and completely looks the part. As a bonus he played a cracking version of Gordon in the Year One animated film.

They're the main guys I'd go with , the rest depends on villains chosen.

I proudly take my part in the minority of Dark Knight film fans whom is NOT a fan of Christian Bale in the role. He just hamfists everything, and this role is no exception. It's more than the Cookie Monster voice (Dark Knight Rises S P O I L E R ! ! ) - you know, the same one he uses when he's talking to Selena Kyle, *after* she *already knows who he really is?* All he does is brood...and glare. And brood some more. And glare. Definitely glare. Now, I understand that Bruce Wayne is

And brood some more. And glare. Definitely glare. Now, I understand that Bruce Wayne is volunteering to do battle in a serious business, and if he's dressing up like a giant bat, he's got to be ready to face a lot of scrutiny and humiliation, by making himself as intimidating as possible. Well guess what?--Robin Hood was a source of intimidation, and the classic image of him is *doing it all with a smile on his face.* I'm not saying that that's what Batman needs to be like, but I AM saying...Batman doesn't always need to be a moody jerk just to prove his point. More than half of that persona is Bale's doing, and as a result, I spent the majority of the time of all three movies waiting for other characters - villains especially - to make their appearances.

That said, if there's anything I'll welcome for the next Batman film(s), it's a different (and hopefully better) actor. Someone with real appeal and charm, not just a showcase for (what's supposed to be) toughness/badassery. I've seen people mention Michael Fassbender, and that's certainly more in line with what I'm talking about; he can out-badass Bale any day of the week, *and do it while STILL charming the heck out of the audience.* That's more in line with what I think Batman could use; something fresh and different.

Because if they're just going to get the next broodiest thug they can find...well, then I still believe in Adam West.

What About Nightwing???

Lets give DC/Warner Bros some credit here and say they have a Nightwing spin-off movie in the works considering how the TDKR ended.
I say David Giuntoli from NBC's Grimm would be a good fit. He's got the fight sequence ability and acting chops to match.

Michael Fassbender as well but he would need to lose his accent. It tends to slip in and out when he's doing a role, but someone suggested Timothy Olyphant and that is actually kind of cool. He has the right voice. I am still hoping one day we will see Jon Hamm as either Batman or Superman, but who knows....

Bring Back Keaton!

This is Warner Bros chance to bring back Michael Keaton. Even though they used a bit of the story from the novel The Dark Knight Returns for Rises (being years later, then batman returns) Bring Keaton back in! I think he is perfect choice to bring back an 'aged' Batman!

I'd prefer an older actor, I always pictured Bruce Wayne in his early 40's reading the comics. But if WB needs to go with a younger actor with franchise longevity , I suggest James Franco. He's shown that he has enough range to pull off a multifaceted Bruce Wayne.

to soon

I think it's still to soon to be doing this . . . the movie is still playing in the cinema
However, imho I feel at this moment in time Michael Fassbender would be a good choice but I feel he does need to put on about 10 to 15 pounds for the role.

A no namer

Hamm looks the part, but he's too old and you're going to want him around for three films. Fassbender, I love him, but he doesn't look the part to me but perhaps he could get in as a villain such as The Riddler.

To me, Bale worked because he had the acting chops and he wasn't a household name yet, mainly having success from American Psycho and The Mechanic. I think something similar needs to happen again. Warner Bros. knows what to do now and they won't screw this up, I mean it's not like

As for The Dark Knight Returns and Batman Beyond, I think that we're getting to a point where people are wanting to know these stories. All of my wife's friends ask me all about the different comics now because they are into them from the films. The look on their faces was priceless after The Amazing Spider-Man, they loved Gwen of course so when I told them not to get attached because Green Gobling will be throwing her off a bridge soon, they were devestated. I think we're getting to a point where we could have a Batman Beyond film (don't think it would work, it doesn't have very good villains), but we could definitely have The Dark Knight Returns one day.

It really depends on what age they want to cast. They probably will go young so that when sequels come out this guy won't be in his 50s...

So how about Ben McKenzie... yeah he voiced him in Batman: Year One so it is kind of hokey, but I think he could pull it off and isn't a big name to the general audience so it wouldn't be distracting.

Okay, I hate myself a little for doing this, so I'm gonna just throw out a name I haven't seen yet.
Matt Bomer. Don't know much about him, but he tends to make it in these suggestions anyway.
Michael Fassbender is great, I love him as much as the next guy, but I'm tired of him being thrown out for every role there is. And I don't want to see him playing Bruce Wayne. We need someone younger than Christian Bale, though, as this next Batman reboot will likely tie into the Justice League world.

I'm with wyked2000.

Idris Elba. Perfect age to play a Batman who's been at it for 10 or 15 years. He's got the size and physicality. The acting chops and has charm to spare for any romantic banter with Vicki Vale or Julie Madison. I can just picture him looming in the Batcave, dangling a thug over a skyscraper, casting a shadow on the roof of police HQ, or smooth-talking the ladies at a gala fundraiser. A father figure to Dick Grayson or Barbara Gordon...a surrogate son for Alfred...a terrifying nightmare to

I flat out don't care about the whole 'white/black' thing because most superheroes were created in a time when no one would publish a comic about a black superhero. I can think of no one better fit to play the goddamn batman than Idris Elba.

The fact that he is white in the comics demands he be white. If someday in the comics they have a black man take over as Batman, then by all means, do a movie with a black Batman. But as long as Bruce Wayne is Batman, he will be white. Now, stop being ridiculous.

Doesn't matter if he is fictional, he has become just as iconic as most real people. And the Catwoman movie is one of the worst of all time.

Ok fine. Robin is the next Batman. Keep in mind that Bruce Wayne was trained in many different fighting styles. Robin was trained by Gotham PD. So when the new Batman gets into a fight with several thugs, he'll more than likely get his ass kicked and left for dead. Therefore, the next Batman movie will be 27 minutes long with the new Batman dead at the end. I'm on board

There is no character named Robin John Blake in the history of Batman so stop with the whole "mythos" routine.

You must've been so confused when Liam Neeson was revealed to be Ra's Al Ghul. But wait, Ken Watanabe said he was Ra's not even 20 minutes ago. Her name is Talia? But she said her name was Miranda Tate through the whole movie. Oh she must be Ken Watanabe's daughter...

Why would Bruce fix the Batsignal and be SO certain that Robin (I'm not calling him JGL anymore, since the movie clearly called him Robin) would take over as Batman? He's coming back and needs a sidekick, one by the name of Robin. Again, the very basics of Batman mythos.

Just because they revealed that his real name was ROBIN doesn't mean that he' is going to be wearing green tights and using his name. That would be stupid. He is going to take over being THE BATMAN.

Bruce alluded to it several times throughout the film. "You need to wear a MASK to protect yourself" "Batman was suppose to be a symbol bigger than just ONE man". Not to mention that the batcave is sure to have Batman suits and I doubt "Robin" would waste time making a DIFFERENT suit. It would make more sense for him to continue as THE BATMAN. Imagine the looks on the faces of criminals when they see the Batman return to fighting crime. Coming back from the dead to clean up the streets once more. It adds more to the legend of Batman in Gotham. There would be no reason for Blake to create a whole new identity when the impact of Batman is so much more powerful. I really wouldn't have a problem with you thinking the wrong thing but you don't have to come across as so rude and ignorant. Don't talk down to people when YOU'RE the one that is clearly wrong.

And I don't understand your logic, dude. Why does he have to be, Robin? JGL, although smaller than Bale is still a full grown man. Showed he had some really good detective skills. He's older than a teenager, the way Robin is generally depicted. I'm sure Bruce would come back to train him in the martial arts much like Ras did for him, but who's to say Bruce sitting at a table in Florence at the end couldn't be interpreted as a retirement?

As for your response to Preston: Have you ever seen

Actually Robin/Nightwing does take over as Batman after Bruce Wayne's "death" in the comics so it would make perfect sense for him to take over the cowl in the movies as well.

So let me follow your guys' logic: There's a Batman movie, Batman is still alive at the end, a young skinny man - revealed to have an unused name of Robin - is given directions to the Batcave, Robin is one of the biggest characters in the Batman mythos... and you guys somehow come up with "Oooohhh, he's Batman" or "Ooooohhh, he's Nightwing." Please tell me none of you are employed in a position where common sense is a must.

And then to Preston who suggests it would be absurd if he went by

If JGL were to put on a mask to hide his identity and fight crime, as was suggested would happen, then I SERIOUSLY doubt he would also call himself by his name, and put a R on his suit. Also, there's no point to having Robin if he has no Batman to fight beside. He would be Nightwing. We'd watch a Nightwing movie, but who would watch a standalone Robin movie with no Batman?

I'm pretty sure Bruce Wayne constantly saying things like "Batman is a symbol" and "Anybody can be Batman" leads me to believe he was meant to take up the cape and cowl or his own stand alone vigilante, like a Nightwing. Not necessarily a sidekick like we know Robin. I think calling him Robin was just a reference to get fanboys wet.

There's no law against playing both from DC & Marvel. But Doc Strange is still a distant future.

I loved Keaton as Batman. Everyone's a badass donning the costume, so looks shouldn't really matter, nor should their jawline. It doesn't have to be the flavor of the month actor. Even though he was a handsome bloke, I would have considered casting Andy Whitfield from Spartacus ..may he rest in peace.

Depends on the tone of the reboot

If they are going to do the dark, gritty yardstick set by Nolan then i say cast Jim Caviezel (I'm serious) like Raleigh_J mentioned.

If they are going to do something light hearted (like Marvel) then Ryan Gosling is the man
If they are going with a race-switch approach then Michael Ealy would be perfect.

PS- For Terry McGinnis I have to (grudgingly) say Taylor Lautner. He has the intensity and angst to pull it off.

I thought of him at first, but he's gold when he can be a sarcastic wiseass. Batman is the total opposite. Maybe the new Human Torch of rebooted FF? But agree he can really do a dark brooding charcter.

It's been said here a million times, but Michael Fassbender could do a good job. He's suave enough to play Bruce Wayne, but has enough brute physicality to play Batman. Armie Hammer could do it, and I'm fully behind Idris Elba as the first black Batman.

I would love to see Brad Pitt as Bruce Wayne/Batman. He is a little older now and def has the chops to deliver. Could you imagine a Fincher/Pitt reunion for Batman?!?!?!?!

Thomas Jane as Batman and Daniel Day Lewis as the Joker.

Oh and, no, I don't want a reboot. No offense to JGL but his character needs to get killed by the Joker so Batman returns because he feels responsible. Batman stops the Joker but then Superman goes after Batman because he is in violation of the Dent Act. It works in the context of what has already been established.

I think given the fact that sitting through the mess that was TDKR (which itself seemed like a dream inside a dream inside a dream) I was hoping for the totally unexpected. It was mentioned in all 3 films if I'm not mistaken that Batman wasn't about the man it was about what the man stood for, so in lieu of that I thought that it would've been an awesome twist had JGL ended up wearing the suit as Bale fulfilled his end of his promise and gave everything. He showed all the same attributes as

He showed all the same attributes as Bale minus the money but I'm sure they could've worked that out just as easily as they made the Bane backbreaking scene almost a joke and how they had the masses believe that he was able to form this army that was actually following Cotilliard. Not to mention the extremely weak death of Bane. If they must make a new Batman, which I know they will they should write a completely new story. We've already seen multiple times the billionaire fighting for justice cause his parents were murdered in front of him. These were supposed to be a darker look and if it wasn't for Heath Ledger's performance that could never been said. His take on the persona of The Joker was enough to give the trilogy a "dark" look. But I digressed. Make a new story, stop beating dead horses. Honestly I'd rather them make a movie called The Dark Knight: The Robin Chronicles and focus on JGL cause his acting chops are just as good if not better than Bale's.

NOT A REBOOT!!

It's interesting that you keep calling this a reboot when it's not. WB is looking to make another Batman film not a reboot. Just like what they did with Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. NOT A REBOOT!! Anyway, who do I think should play the next Batman...I have no idea. I wouldn't be surprised if they pick an unknown. But I think the Riddler could be it the next one.
Remember this fake Poster when they were deciding to make the Next Batman movie after The Dark Knight. I thought it was so

Every comic book superhero created until the late 1960s was white. Because no publisher would even think of creating a superhero that wasn't white. Even if Bob Kane had wanted Bruce Wayne to be black, DC would have never let it happen.

Is Othello the only Shakespearian role open to black thespians? Is Forest Whitaker barred from ever playing Willie Loman?

What say you to 2,000 years of blue-eyed, blond haired white guys playing Jesus Christ?

There's no reason to make casting

There's no reason to make casting decisions in the 21st Century based on the institutionalized racism of 70 years ago. If a black actor has the best audition for Bruce Wayne, or Clark Kent, or Diana Prince or James Bond or Zeus....there is no reason for them not to get the role. Nothing in Batman's character history demands that he be white.

This racism card being played for Bruce Wayne now? No one will ever say that the best actor should get Black Panther;s part, or Blades part. The cast was done for the character in the comics. Get off it already, if you don't want to support the comics because of your firm belief that they were drawn white because of racism back 70 years ago thats great. Go read something more modern without 70 years of history behind it. But don't call it racist now, and try to ruin 70 years of a character

Go read something more modern without 70 years of history behind it. But don't call it racist now, and try to ruin 70 years of a character that everyone has grown to love (Bruce Wayne).
Its easy to say these things because its almost taboo to stand up, and say what your doing is wrong. Thats like saying that a roll for a black female, should go to a the actor best capable even if its a white male. No one will ever dare call BET racist, but if there were ever a station called WET you can dam well be sure that would be.
Whether racism played a part in Bruce Wayne being white, or whether the target market for their readers 70 years ago were white young boys which is also very believable shouldn't matter. What matters is the history behind the character that stands today. These characters have established a base, and their fans are loyal to that. In Man of Steel we have a superman without red briefs and boots, and people were ridiculously pissed about that. We have a Ninja Turtle movie coming out, and everyone is up in arms because they will now be aliens (myself included). So making a change to have Bruce Wayne be black would never go over well...
AND NOT BECAUSE BATMAN FANS ARE RACIST!

Bruce Wayne will most likely always be movie Batman. Bruce Wayne will always be white. Not for racist reasons, but because Bruce Wayne is

FIGHT!

Jason Momoa for Bruce/Batman

While his Conan performance left a little to be desired, I think with a little coaching he could do well. He also has the physicality. Bring him up to say, 210-15lbs, and use a hybrid batsuit reminiscent of the Arkham games suits. I think it'd be really rad to see some legit Batman hand-to-hand combat. There's been glimpses, but no real "fight scenes". Think The Protector's restaurant fight but with Bats kicking ass.

JGL was not The Boy Wonder/ Won't be Bats

I was reading through the comments and I cannot figure out why everyone thinks JGL was Robin as in the Boy Wonder. The character Blake, his first name happened to be Robin but in no way is he Robin: The Boy Wonder. Do people not get the idea of an homage to a character? He was Blake, not Grayson, not Drake, not Brown (obviously) and not Wayne. Nolan was never going to put The Boy Wonder into the series, so having a character with that name appeased the fans that wanted him to and made a little

Michael Fassbender for Bruce Wayne/Batman. If anyone's seen Shame you'll know that he's able to project one hell of a yell. He's a damn good actor.

I Love Fassbender... BUT...

...you don't cast a dude that is built like the flash to play the batman. Matthew Fox / Jim Caviezel are solid choices; as would be Peter Dinklage.

Kidding...

Eric Bana? He's got a whole host of conflicted roles behind him.
