It's a tough act to follow, casting another actor as Batman so soon after Christian Bale's turn in the cowl. You don't want to tread on his toes, but make the role your own.
I think Bale was a fail. You might like the movies but he did not capture the comics for me at all. Not the tutored psycho he is in the comics. And he was not even remotely as badass as he was in the comics. He is a force of nature in comics, but Bale was like a emo whimp, a very sad portrayal of Batman. I want somebody who can give a really aggressive physically threatening performance of Batman. Please no Bale.
