The next Bat will, safe money bet, be:

25-30 years old +/- 2 years
non-American born
experienced not a 'name' celebrity (no Bradley Cooper, no Jon Hamm)
I'm 25, and i can safely say that it shouldn't be anyone around 25. maybe it's just me but i still feel like a kid, and to have batman portrayed in that area of age seems a bit odd to me.
Henry Cavill is 30, i wouldn't mind seeing someone 30+ for the role just to have a Batman who is older and thinks he knows more about humanity and the darkness than superman would. that could play well with character i think.
in saying that i know the studio will want an actor who can last a franchise, so having an actor at 30 and lasting for, what, 9-12 years of movies (assuming it is one every 2 years or so including cameo-ing in other solo character movies.) making the actor 39-42 by the end of their run might be "risky" for the studio, but i'd be happy with that.
