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

Actually I take that one back. He was great acting wise. Im still sore that he looked like his costume was made from thrown out Ninja Turtles costumes and smurf ****. I will replace him on that list with
2 cat women(halle and anne) and one Robin. Lol

I like the idea of Wes Bently if he bulks up, I've seen him in some great dark roles, and he actually has black hair and blue eyes like Batman is supposed to.
This isn't the 80's? I wish it were. 80's had THE best Batman. Keaton is still my fav. I just hate them always needing to cast big names as heroes and failing. Actually not just that, but also this need to change **** or do anything to appease mainstream audiences while ignoring the things that made these heroes legends in fiction. Which is why I like Zack Snyder. He tends to be true where others fail and the "updated" stuff actually works. How he handled Watchmen was epic, with as few changes as possible. Even the ending change still worked eventhouth it put all the heat on Manhatten. In the end I trust Snyder. He'll make a good choice.

Hunnam is one of my picks for Green Arrow, but Batman? Nooooo. Also I want to take back my comment about Gosling being the worst pick for bats. I saw a few people suggest David Boreanz. So yeah, that is now the worst.

He's not a personal pick of mine for the role right now, but a younger Boreanaz is what I would call perfect for the role of Batman. Absolute perfection. It's like he was constructed just for that role. Too bad he's not in his late twenties/early thirties anymore.

In truth, the fact Bentley looks perfect for the part is a happy coincidence- it is the intensity of his presence which I think seals the deal.

Charlie Hunnam is not leading man material, he explicitly showed that in Pacific Rim. I say keep him as far away from the project as possible.

It's his first movie as a leading man, and he's perfectly fine in it, he's proven that with the right material (SOA, Hooligans, Nicholas Nickleby, Deadfall), he's truly great. He's fit for The Flash, and we had this rumor that WB was so high on him that he's the lead choice for The Flash.

About Bats, give it to Armie Hammer (since he was alrdy cast as Bats in George Miller's Justice League) or Garrett Hedlund.

I have just finished the first 6 episodes of True Blood Season 6 and I think Rob Kasinsky would be an excellent choice. He was both nice and charming, but almost showed that he could be dangerous and menacing when the scene required.

I think he should be considered.

IMO, Kazinsky would be the a great cross between Keaton and Bale which is exactly what we want.

I think he would audition for it. He likes Batman and stuff. ..He's dressed as Clark Kent on his Twitter page lol

But I hope he isn't bound by a contract or something. HBO did not let Joe Manganiello screentest for Man Of Steel even though he was called because the shoot would happen at the same time as True Blood.

But overall Kazinsky should definitely test. Plus he got superbuff for Pacific Rim so he can nail the physical aspect as well.

FYI this IS casting for Batman in an actual movie, not a crappy CW rendition loosely based on comics geared towards teen girls with no taste. Might as well just say "**** it" and go with Boreanz.

I'd be less down on all these CW types if this were Batman Beyond....but this is Bruce Wayne, not a man-child. Bruce Wayne should never have a face that looks like boy(which too many of these men have)....unless it's a flashback to childhood. Here's one I haven't seen and am admittedly iffy on...Clive Owen. He's more Bruce than Bats. Should have been the new Bond IMO.

Clive Owen is old and can't do a decent American accent to save his life. He's never going to be Bond or Batman.

Fair enough for Bats, but why not Bond? He's damn near perfect for it considering his roles in Sin City and Shoot Em Up. He has the look, accent and action movie chops. Not like Connery or Moore were that young when they were Bond, and they are two of the best ones. It kinda doesn't help that he looks an itty bit like Lazenby, though. Ugh, hate Lazenby.

Tyler Hoechlin is being reported as the top candidate and will even be screen testing alongside Cavill!

Why not but I'm surprised he is only 25.

If Cosmic Book News says it than you know there's no chance in it happening. Thankfully.

That's just the same unreliable report from Cosmic Book News being recycled over and over again.
