Default Batman casting thread for Man Of Steel 2

Who should be cast as Batman in Man Of Steel 2?

I think possible choices are

Charlie Hunnam - got the jaw, got the physique, was in Pacific Rim
Joe Manganiello - runner-up to Cavill for Man Of Steel

I prefer batman to be the most mature out of all the justice league. So I prefer a middle aged Batman.


Eric Bana for Batman

bland, boring, wooden, these words don't begin to describe Hunnam in Pacific Rim keep him far the **** away from this. The body is nothing, the acting is everything!

Joey Man at least the skills and the passion to bring his A game to the role. He would at least pique my interest.

Manganiello is generic beefcake, but his acting skills didn't impress me in True Blood. He's got the physique, but I'd like an actor who can embody or disappear into the role. Not some grizzled stud.

I like the Karl Urban suggestion. He can do the gravelly voice as well as Bale, and he's got tha superhero chin going for him.

I would go with someone older and more grizzled than Cavill. It'll never happen, off course, but someone like Ron Pearlman or Mickey Rourke. But in my mind, Batman's already been operative for years before Superman was doing the twist.

He's OK in Pacific Rim. He wasn't given much to work with. He did well enough with what he was given.

i want Bale too. the question is will he come back to the role? i know he's repeated himself over and over that its OVER, but for a guy who totally defined the role-- and for something that is NEW as far as Batman is concerned-- couldnt they talk him into it? money may not work (Bale is an idealist) so maybe pledge animal shelters or smth as part of his deal?

Nolan can change his tune in time, Bale can be used for a slew of Batman and Superman movies and Justice League films, that Nolan doesn't have to take part in. Heck, Nolan can stay out of the loop for 20 some years, but than, soften his heart, and change his tune for the fans, and make one last final Batman film add-on to his trilogy, in The Dark Knight Returns!

A well written script, as well as time, and money, can change everything.

Nolan left Batman retired (for a second time), and having faked his death again (also for a second time). In The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, Batman is very well both aged and retired, even more so than he was in film The Dark Knight Rises, where he was likely in his late 30s, maybe 39, and retired for eight years.

Batman is like mid 60s in The Dark Knight Returns and retired for like 20 some odd years, before making one final come back against a Gotham City overridden by a tyrannical, terrorist gang of mutants.

In short, it still ties with what Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises already started, all they need to do is write in Super Heroes and JL into Gotham's world for the extension of these other new films, and it's a done deal.

With this, Bale can play Batman in The Dark Knight Returns in his 40s, after the slew of these other films they can make.

Christian Bale or bust! Make it so!

Would really like to see Jim Caviezel do it if Christian Bale is absolutely 100% done.

I hate casting threads, since they're usually really horrible choices. And I won't contribute to that aspect.

I do hope they go for a middle aged guy, though. Not necessarily grizzled, but stay away from the young 20-something star of tomorrow. Cavill already seems young. Batman needs to contrast him and will probably be the "bad guy."

If he were a bit younger David Boreanaz would be perfect for the next few films.

Oh Jesus Christ. Someone at least bring up a decent actor in mid twenties to early thirties. I'm still curious to see what Armie Hammer might have done with the role.

I said in Batman thread, after somebody posted a picture of Gosling. I doubt it's possible to get him unless the script is really, really good. He is the right age, and physically would be perfect in the suit.

Gosling would be so horrible. He's smugger than smug and a really monotonous actor. He literally turns every character he plays into a smug douchebag. I don't think he should could come within 50 feet of a superhero movie, it will tank really hard.
