Default Re: Batman casting thread for Man Of Steel 2 - Part 1

People aren't suggesting it because it's not a good idea. I'd rather have a good actor than an MMA fighter.

It's easier to convincingly gain Batman's body than it is to convince the audience that you are Batman. Or to be more general, it's easier to change your body than learn a talent. Hiring Adkins would be the equivalent of those pop boy/girl bands that hire dancers and autotune the crap out of their voices, because they were hired for appearances, not musical talent.

Which is why when you see even the very dedicated cosplayers who don't just dedicate their time to costumes but their bodies to their character, still do not look like Batman.
