Cast This: Batman! (for Batman/Superman movie)

Aug. 2, 2013by:

Time to revisit some familiar territory and take another swing at casting Batman!

So yes, we cast this subject not that long ago-- but here's the thing, now we have to evaluate it a bit differently since the next time we see the dark knight he will be alongside Superman.

It was announced at Comic Con after a rather amazing reading from Henry Lennix that a Batman/Superman movie was headed our way. The piece that Lennix was given to read came right out of the pages of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. If you've read that then you know Batman and Superman get into a brutal fight with Batman delivering a rather great internal monologue. Zack Snyder already said that the film would not come directly from that graphic novel but it was rather a clue to what we would see. While we already have a Superman with Henry Cavill, it's important that we figure out who would be the perfect person to go head to head with him.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is already a possibility for the role. There's been word that Tyler Hoechlin from MTV's TEEN WOLF is a current favorite to which I say this:

Maybe that was a tad bit too dramatic of a response especially since I don't know much of the kid. It was also a rumor. Many have expressed an interest for Jon Hamm who I believe is not interested in taking a superhero role. Actually he said that he had "aged out of that" and unless it was the right thing it probably wasn't "his jam". Another name that's been thrown out there is Armie Hammer. I'll let you discuss that one amongst yourselves. We all know who Batman is, and we've seen several different interpretations but what have we yet to see from the character? I'm sure you guys already have someone in mind or have for awhile so get to it and cast away!

RESULTS FROM PREVIOUS 'CAST THIS': HIGHLANDER

1. Thomas Jane 2. Gerard Butler 3. Kevin McKidd

Even though there were several cries to get "someone who is actually Scottish" for the role, Thomas Jane took the number one spot because as schmoe FILMSfromtheFUTURE said "Tom Jane is Christopher Lambert". I think this was the obvious choice and personally my favorite. Jane would nail the shit out of that role. Scotts Gerard Butler and Kevin McKidd filled the other slots. Maybe one of them could play Kurgan instead? A few of you would rather chew glass than watch a remake but we just want to have fun here. Does this not amuse you?! Regardless, thanks for being awesome schmoes and coming up with great casting choices!

The Face is IMPORTANT

Wow... Thank goodness alot of you don't work on making this film.....Armie Hammer? Liev Shreiber? Totally wrong for this part...one has an annoying voice and accent, the other has the wrong mouth and slim lips

My choices:

1. Jason Momoa
2. Jim Caviezel. (Especially if Guy Pierce is Lex Luthor)
3. Wes Bentley
4. Hugh Jackman (Wolverine is in the Marvel universe, so,who cares)
5. Kurt Russel ( ohhh man...this guy with the Kevin Conroy voice???? Hoooo Snap!...and he might make a great

Im mostly torn between Jim Caviesel and Jason Momoa...but Wes Bentley definitely has the look more than any of them......and Jason Momoa looks like a strong tall Batman like in the animated series.

Adkins for Batman

After hearing it my absolute first pic is Scott Adkins.
After him I would say Matthew Fox and Guy Pearce are solid choices. Hell even Anson Mount could be really cool as Batman. Just please no Bale though he was good its time to move on.

It's gotta be an established unknown. Cavill had a pretty good starting career and just needed the bump to make him a known name. Same happened with Chris Hemsworth. Either way I could give two shits about anything Batman or Superman in this universe that Goyer and Snyder are pretty much helming. Hated Man of Steel and I really hope that any future Batman or DC movies go down the same path of crap that MoS was.

Here me out..David Boreanaz

So a few years ago I would have slapped myself in the face for putting forth that pretty boy. But then I watched the show Angel, especially the first season. I thought to myself, this is the closest thing to a (serious) live action Batman TV show I'm ever going to see. He was dark, he was brooding, but then he could put on his charming happy face when going under cover. It was Batman with a vampire twist. But now he isn't a pretty boy, he's a gown-ass man. Don't think about him when he

Don't think about him when he was pining over Buffy, think about him now. He'd be a perfect Bruce Wayne and he could totally wear the mask. Just my opinion, of course.

I still keep thinking back to my favorite actor...

He's already pretty well-versed in the Superhero on Film genre, but Thomas Jane! Aside from all the other qualifications he's got, I could imagine him having the perfect voice as well.

hate the idea of a Batman/ Superman movie for starters so soon and after a very frustrating MOS movie, but if I had to chime in...STick with Bale, lose the growl and revert to the raspy whisper in the first movie, have him redeem himself as Batman. the movies were good, but his Batman after Begins was tainted. It was only 2012 last he played Bats and seeing him return as an older batman would kill any character development needed. Pay him what is needed and give us who we already are

Pay him what is needed and give us who we already are attached to, but if not, Mathew Fox and Brolin are my top pics i guess. All I know is Micheal C Hall should be Dare Devil lol

since we are going older...what of JOHNNY DEPP??? would be interesting to see him a non weirdo for the first time in a long time.

John Hamm is a great pic, but he wouldnt be easy to disguise. it would look like him cause of his stature in and out of costume.

Shocked no one has mentioned...

James Badge Dale. He's got the look, the voice, the talent, and everyone seems to love him in anything he's in. Mid-30's. He doesn't have Henry Cavil's height, sure, but look what they did with Tom Hardy in TDKR. JBD is my pick.

Repeats, but whatever

I'm actually pleasantly surprised by a lot of the names being thrown around. Here are my top picks (in no particular order):

Josh Brolin -- The guy's a great actor. Every time I see him, I'm impressed by what he brings to the film. Look at "True Grit," for example. While I'm pretty mixed about the "Oldboy" remake, it does give an idea of what he could do as Bats.

Matthew Fox -- Hadn't thought of this one before reading some of the comments, but I like it. He's one of those actors who

Matthew Fox -- Hadn't thought of this one before reading some of the comments, but I like it. He's one of those actors who looks to be getting weirder as he ages (physically, I mean), and that fits in with an older, beat up Bruce Wayne. Plus, after Christian Bale, you need an actor willing to go the body transformation route, and just look at "Alex Cross."

Luke Evans -- Not gonna happen because of "The Crow," but he would've been a good choice, I think. He has a nice brooding presence that makes up for the fact that he's not as physically imposing as some other actors. A little bit more Michael Keaton, if you know what I mean.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau -- Possibly my favorite choice after watching the third season of "Game of Thrones." He's able to play psychologically complex, but also suave. And like what I said about Matthew Fox, Coster-Waldau is aging in a way that's great for Batman. Besides, the fact that he's fluent in a few languages can only help, right? Not that I expect scenes of Batman hanging out in Denmark, but it does contribute to an air of intelligence.

Eric Bana -- Not my first choice, but I am a Bana fan, and he's got a lot of things going for him. The age is right. At 6'2", his height wouldn't be a problem like some actors. He's versatile. And he's proved his ability to do believable fight scenes ("Hanna").

Honorable mentions:

So, one name that never gets thrown out (for totally obvious reasons) but who I could have seen as a pretty great Batman is..... Hugh Jackman. Too bad his name's practically synonymous with Wolverine.

The other name I'd throw out if they wanted to go quite a bit older is Billy Campbell, aka The Rocketeer. He's 6'4", for one thing, and he just looks like a superhero. If they were straight up doing "The Dark Knight Returns," he would be one of my first choices for Batman.

Karl Urban

I hadn't thought of it until I read the other comments, but I like the idea of Karl Urban playing an older Batman. That could really work.

Can't believe this didn't come to me sooner

So I was thinking about all the "rumoured" people who could play Batman. I'm sure an unknown is the easiest of choices for WB because backlash won't be as bad with an unknown as it would be for a star. BUT... while thinking of someone who would look good in the cowl (only showing the bottom of their face), someone who has the physique, and charm as Bruce Wayne... my choice is:

KARL URBAN

This could be a big deal for him. I loved him in Dredd. He did a fine job not showing his face in

Ok...here me out

I've gone in depth several times on this site of why this movie is a terrible next move if DC is trying to have their own version of the marvel cinematic universe. This movie should come after a new Batman movie, Supes sequel, and while other JLA characters are being developed on TV or films. Or this will be a stand alone. Obviously supes and bats will end up together to fight whoever manipulated them or whatever the "plot" is going to be (I guess the rumor is the Joker and Luthor - and I
I've gone in depth several times on this site of why this movie is a terrible next move if DC is trying to have their own version of the marvel cinematic universe. This movie should come after a new Batman movie, Supes sequel, and while other JLA characters are being developed on TV or films. Or this will be a stand alone. Obviously supes and bats will end up together to fight whoever manipulated them or whatever the "plot" is going to be (I guess the rumor is the Joker and Luthor - and I sure haven't heard any complaints about recasting a new Joker yet, despite what almost EVERYONE said about Heath and when speculation began for the new villains in the 3rd Nolan Bats movie.). I'd love for JGL to continue with Bats, and I think it's cool they continue the Nolan universe (although that'd create tons of plot holes and the Bane threat certainly wouldn't have happened in this universe, but I could over look that). BUT Wayne didn't teach JGL shit. Without a solo film to show what (and how?) he's learned and his style, there's NO WAY he could go up against Supes in prolly his first main fight. It never really showed he was that good a detective or a good fighter. So this Batman is going to have to be established. We will have to assume/believe he's been Batman for AT LEAST 10-15 years. So we need an older Batman, which is the ONLY thing that should be taken from Millers story line bc as I'vs said before, unless this is a stand alone, a lot hasn't been established - Supes isn't a government tool, Luthor hasn't even been introduced, and there's many more, but the main one is that kryptonite hasn't been introduced. I don't think DC/WB really want an older Bats for their continuity for a JLA film(s), and I guess future solo Bat films, but for this film to work next he has to be an older Batman. I think Jon Hamm would be a good pick, but my number one pick, and stay with me, you've read this far....is George Clooney, no joke. He knows his first time playing Bats was shit, and unfortunately that's why he'd prolly never try it or prolly any other comic book role again, but everyone knows he's a GREAT actor, and everyone knows that the failure of his first go round wasn't really his fault. I think he'd be a great pick. The only other person I can even think of after that would be Matt Damon as 2nd, Hamm as 3rd. Thoughts? I'd love to hear feedback.

Looking at other people's posts, here's some names I agree with that'd go from great to decent

1. Liam Neeson would be perfect 10 - 15 years ago and if he wasn't already Raz. He could maybe even pull it off now...aren't they making a Taken 3?
2. Josh Brolin is a GREAT idea
3. Urban would be fine but I don't know about his Bruce Wayne.
4. Thomas Jane, but I also don't know how his Bruce Wayne would be.
5. Fassbender is a pretty good choice but he's prolly too busy to sign on to what will

4. Thomas Jane, but I also don't know how his Bruce Wayne would be.
5. Fassbender is a pretty good choice but he's prolly too busy to sign on to what will surely be a 3-5 picture contract. I also think he really enjoys doing a lot of smaller films, especially with the director of Shame, so I think he might be afraid of burning out on the big productions of all the Bats films and more X films.
6. Colin Farrell has done some more interesting parts lately with psychopaths (was it 7 or 11?) and Dead Man Down. From Colin on down would be if they can't get the people above.
7. I think Sam Rockwell would be an inspired out of the box choice.
8. Billy Crudup
9. Jude Law
10. Matt Bomer - who I've never seen act I don't believe, but looks the part.

11. And I actually just thought of this, but if they really want an older actor that's a name like RDJ to be DC's rock, why not Tom Cruise, unless he's too franchise heavy now (I don't know if they are making sequels to Jack Reacher or anything but the MI films). He's a fantastic actor, and someone who would be believable as a human in going up against Superman. I think he'd actually be a great choice if he's not to busy. He's also an older guy, but he'd be the big name draw to the universe similar to RDJ, and would/could get other great actors to realize DC has got something going on like Marvel. He's probably in my top 3 now

Eric Bana would be terrible. And Karl Urban is going to be too busy to be in this since he has Star Trek and his new robot show on Fox coming out soon. If they are infact casting for an older Batman than Jon Hamm, Josh Brolin, or Matthew Fox would all make great older Batmans.

I'm still convinced DC won't pick any of the actors that we are listing in this coulmn.

Joe Manganiello!

He would be PERFECT as Batman. He's a really good actor and if you've seen him on True Blood, you know that the guy has an AMAZING body. He's huge and he's ripped. Joe Manganiello could definitely go head to head with Henry Cavill.

Scott Adkins For Batman!! If you don't know him, google him. And definitely check some youtube videos of his incredible martial arts skills. He had a small role in Zero Dark Thirty which I was happy about but I'd still like to see him get bigger roles, I think this fits the bill.

Honoring our new "Come on Hollywood" article, My choice: Matthew Fox

Many people saying Josh Holloway, but then we'll miss out on potentially the PERFECT Gambit (but I know dreams don't come true).....So why not another Lost alum who was brooding, intense and a hell of an actor? And he was badass as masked RacerX in Speed Racer!

You had me until you mentioned Speed Racer. Ugh what a terrible film. But I agree, Matthew Fox is an inspired choice.

I loved Speed Racer, felt like being a kid watching thru his favorite morning cartoon show (Although I never actually seen Speed Racer cartoon). I guess thats the tipping point for everyone, either this side, or that.... :P

I would go with either Jeffer Donovan (Burn Notice) or Jon Hamm. Both are a little bit older actors who look like they can pull of a good Bruce Wayne.

Alex O'Loughlin.
For me he's a solid choice but if the rumors are true and it'll be an older Batman/ Bruce then I would think James Purefoy would be a good pick. Ah who knows!!

I dont want to make this a discussion again about a white superhero played by a black one but he would make for a really cool batman, and they wont have to put make up around the eyes anymore. Also to bad they dont make a batman movie in his older days played by mel gibson.

Is the best choice, as seen on lost he has an incredible wide emotional range from being a very calm reasonable leader to a complete broken one and to a very angry person you dont want to fuck with, and after seeing alex cross,terrible movie wonderfull fox he should be the one to play batman.

Urban would be fine to, the whole dredd movie already was an audition for the role

Olyphant-astic. I've been saying this for a while now. He's tall, cut, has a good look and acting ability. Watch Justified or check him out in A Perfect Getaway. He plays both the dark and tough roles in those pretty well. Credit to MoviezAreMyLife for beating me to the post.

The thing about casting this character is that many of them could be a great Batman but few can handle play both Batman and Bruce Wayne, and i think thats the main thing.
My choices: Jim Caviezel, Andrew Lincoln, Michael Fassbender would have been great but he is already Magneto, If not, Fuck it bring Christian Bale back...
Although they probably cast an unknown actor.

A new name to consider

Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy, Remember the Titans)
He is somewhat unknown, plays a dark brooding character on Sons, the right age, physical prowess and some good acting chops. Just throwing it out there, but I think he fits more of the mold akin to Cavil.

I thought he was awesome in Social Network, but that doesn't mean he's good for Batman.

I'd still choose him over Sam Worthington, but then again I'd choose Gilbert Gotfried over that guy too.

Never noticed his height until googling it just now. I would not have guessed he was only 5' 9".

I figure Snyder will end up going with someone younger who looks good next to Cavill, but I really want someone a bit older. Age and experience could be an advantage for Batman when clashed against the superhumans that he'll be around in Justice League, while humanizing him all the more. Besides, for how much Snyder loves Dark Knight Returns and has talked about it since long before he was

SEAN FARIS

Sean Faris was awesome as the lead in the first Never Back Down movie, in which he also displayed formidable hand to hand fighting skills. He has made a few more lesser known martial arts films since then as well. He is the perfect "unknown" for Batman/Bruce Wayne. He is currently 31 and is in amazing physical condition. PLEASE CHECK OUT HIS IMDB PAGE TO SEE WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE NOW.

not sure if this was a rumor I read, but word is the studios are looking for someone who can pass as someone in their late 30s to early 40s to portray a Batman that is a veteran of crime fighting. meaning no origin stories, a Batman that is already established . Now if that is true then I think its a good move. we are all tired of origin stories, especially with characters like Superman, Batman and Spiderman.

I have to say that they need to get somebody who is at least mid 30's to early 40's. The audience needs to feel like Bruce Wayne has been Batman for a while. My top choices, in no particular order, are Michael C. Hall, I have seen his name tossed out a couple of times and I agree, he has essentially been playing batman for 8 years already. He can be charming and also dark and dangerous. Sullivan Stapleton, I haven't seen much of his work but what I have seen he can handle his action seens and

Sullivan Stapleton, I haven't seen much of his work but what I have seen he can handle his action seens and he looks intelligent while also giving the look that he could go batshit crazy if you say the wrong thing. The last will get some flack but he is more mainstream and I could see the studio pulling in a mainstream actor for this. Jake Gyllenhaal. He plays unstable very well as we witnessed in Donnie Darko. He has done some action movies so I think he could handle the sequences. He can pull in the dramatic parts as well as being charming as seen in Brokeback and Love and other Drugs and like it or hate it we all saw in Prince of Persia he was in excellent shape.

Ill have a big problem with this movie if they choose a young actor to play Batman. I mean, he should be older than Superman and between 37-45. Like Bales age, even when he s not returning, they must choose someone like him, not a 20-something. So I have many who can fit the part: Jon Hamm, Karl Urban, Hugh Dancy, even Brollin. Guy Pearce always was one of my favorites actors and a solid choise for Wayne, but I cannot see another actor from Marvels universe playing a big part in a DC movie!

Anson Mount would be pretty great for this role, I think he could pull it off. I think Guy Pearce could be pretty good too! Definitely need someone older and a bit more refined as an actor. So everyone suggesting Armie Hammer and Wes Bentley can shut it! Those are horrible casting choices.

I'm generally against throwing in my lot on a new Batman, but a few folks have mentioned Anson Mount, and he's an actor I'd just like to see get more work anyway.

Guy Pearce

I would say Guy Pearce, especially now that he is starting to do more commercial films like Lockout.

I totally agree. He's perfect in Hell on Wheels. And he has the look, the ability to put on the size and women love him.

jason wtf are you talking about? Anson is 40 years old and a very fit 6 foot 1. The rest I agree with about all the new actors.

Tyler Hoechlin looks pretty good for the part. I don't know about his acting chops. I kinda think Jai Courtney would make a good Batman/Bruce Wayne.

1. Micheal C Hall (basically already plays a super sick dark knight in dexter.)
2. Cillian Murphy (since he missed out on the role initially in Batman Begins)
3. Stephen Lang (If we are going to go for a much older batman... Lang can tank it up.)

They should go with a lesser known actor who can pull it off instead of finding someone half half.
What they need:
- Someone with Nathan Fillion level charisma for Bruce Wayne. Love him or hate him, the guy has a strong presence.
- Someone who is methodical, intelligent and more importantly, is able to make his own gadgets and improvements. My biggest complaint about Nolan's series is that Bruce was average as far as brains go. He's the worlds greatest detective, DO THAT. I mean, at least

My biggest complaint about Nolan's series is that Bruce was average as far as brains go. He's the worlds greatest detective, DO THAT. I mean, at least Tim Burton showed Batman was capable.
- Lastly, I don't care so much for super bulked up Batman, but he needs to be able to take down dozens of bad guys by himself and hold his own. He needs to feel relentless and strong.
As much as I enjoyed Nolan's universe, it was flawed especially in TDKR with the whole "boo hoo, I quit". He was Batman for what, 2 years and retired for 8 years. Nonsense.
I hope they get this movie right. Batman is obviously weaker than Superman but he is 10000% smarter. He should still be able to hold his own by being like 100 steps ahead, much like Luthor should be.

My Thoughts

I think they need to hire a "Name" Actor to be safe. I honestly cannot suggest anyone because the character of Batman/Bruce Wayne is my favorite. It's kind of like having a best friend/sibling, no one is good enough to date them but once there's someone chosen, you gotta live with it and hope they're good. I wasn't crazy about Bale but he proved me wrong. I may be wrong about the "Name" actor thing, but that's just what i'm thinking.

It will be a young upcoming actor , just like Henry Cavill.

But my choice would be Karl Urban.
