Re: Predictions for the next Batman movie
Out of boredom I was watching The Spirit (stupid movie btw) and if it wasn't for the actor Gabriel Macht being 40 years old, he's actually 2 years older than Bale and I'm assuming WB needs an actor in their late 20's early 30's for the reboot that Gabriel would've been pretty decent as Batman, since he was narrating in The Spirit he does have a deep masculine voice without having to growl like Bale.
A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
