Default The ‘Batman’ Casting Thread

The next Batman. The thread for casting, discussing and analysing Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Would love to have Urban as Batman. But I fear he'd be a little too old if they don't do the film soon-ish, bearing in mind WB would likley want a new series. But still, he's my top choice.

Karl Urban would be cool. Previously I was thinking Timothy Olyphant

I've always envisioned these two in a Batman film. No idea what roles they would play.

brad douriff would've been a great joker.

wincott kinda looks like heath ledger so maybe he would've made a good joker too. but he might be more " black mask " material. hell he could even be batman material. but of course, i'm judging mainly by his role in the crow since that's the only movie i've seen him in

i suppose that'd include bryan cranston as gordon too ? lol

not that i disagree with any of those choices at all, i'd love to see that.

Anson Mount

Jon Hamm

Karl Urban

Colin Farrell

Wes Bentley

At this point everyone has seen him suggested for the role, but...that's because the dude would be an awesome Batman. Ryan Gosling

I like the idea of an older Batman now. Jeffrey Dean Morgan or Luke Evans would be great

You can't really make a Bat franchise with those two.

IF Batman is out 2019, Hamm would be 48 and Mount, 46.

Elba would make an AWESOME Batman. And I would like to see Felicia Day in a Batgirl outfit.

Usually I understand why people suggest Elba in various roles (like Bond) but I don't really see him as Batman / Bruce Wayne. It is pretty tedious when Elba gets suggested for every role ever with seemingly little thought put into it.

I have nothing against him, or Fassbender. It just gets to the point of overkill with them both.

I would cast Kate Upton...just as a scantily clothed conquest of Briuce's, just give the movie a bit of sex appeal

Alfred Pennyworth : Ralph Fiennes
Leslie Thompkins : Helen Bohnam Carter
Lucius Fox : Jeffrey Wright
Lt Sarah Essen : Charlize Theron
