Actually it's mostly based on Adkins being proficient in a variety of martial arts and having that "intense man of few words" style of acting already down. With the right scripting and a little dedication he could be a better Batman in look AND ACTION than most of these WB show actor suggestions. They all have that too young look. It seems men these days are looking less and less like manly men and more like boys in man cloths. IMO that's why ole Henry makes such a good Supes, he looks like a classic "Man". Moreso than Routh, who has a bad case of the boy look. Looks aren't the end all and be all, but neither is acting. Bale is a tremendous actor, but IMO he wasn't a very good Batman. Bruce Wayne, very good, but when he was in that suit it just didn't look(or sound, need a losenge?) right.
