Re: The Batman Reboot Casting Thread - Part 6
True that not all comic book movies need Oscar winners, but it helps to have a decent actor who's right for the part. I don't need (or want) a method actor, but I do want a guy who can sell it.
And IMO, here's what we should look for in a Batman actor:
Stoic but not bland
Badass but restrained
Athletic but not overly muscular
Charming but not overly nice
Someone who can do action and a little bit of drama
Not too loud, not too quiet
That should be what we're looking for.
