So, clearly, no one ever bothered to read my OP then... ok, nice to know. :/

The next Bat will, safe money bet, be:

25-30 years old +/- 2 years
non-American born
experienced not a 'name' celebrity (no Bradley Cooper, no Jon Hamm)

Jake Gyllenhaal seems like a likely choice unfortunately. He is a good actor but I just can see him as the Bat.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and Liam McIntyre (Spartacus) would both be good choices IMO. While Nikolaj is 42 he certainly doesn't look it.

I'd like both Hammer or Gosling, but in both cases Snyder and the costume design team has to dye their hair. I don't want a blonde Bruce Wayne.

Fassbender or Karl Urban would also be cool. Urban's Dredd voice is a perfect Bat-voice. Distinct and different, but not a Bale ripp off or as over the top as Bale.

I'm 25, and i can safely say that it shouldn't be anyone around 25. maybe it's just me but i still feel like a kid, and to have batman portrayed in that area of age seems a bit odd to me.
Henry Cavill is 30, i wouldn't mind seeing someone 30+ for the role just to have a Batman who is older and thinks he knows more about humanity and the darkness than superman would. that could play well with character i think.
in saying that i know the studio will want an actor who can last a franchise, so having an actor at 30 and lasting for, what, 9-12 years of movies (assuming it is one every 2 years or so including cameo-ing in other solo character movies.) making the actor 39-42 by the end of their run might be "risky" for the studio, but i'd be happy with that.

i wanna bring up my take on this idea of BATMAN not having a "voice"
with MoS having metropolis Clark Kent be superman with no physical change other than the glasses.
i think that approach could work well with Batman. make The Batman only interact with Gordon, Superman and Villains.
Bale's 'growl' is not something that bothered me, i understood it's purpose but you can have bruce wayne being a light soft voiced playboy and the batman being an angry voice, not forced not too different to waynes voice. i dunno. i think the "voice" is something i can live without.
the batman will be a mystery to the public, only those he mainly interacts with will be know his voice, and i hope they take the focus of the "who is he?" aspects.
like how MoS got rid of the "one minuet Clark is here, then he is gone when superman is around" schtick. bypassing the whole 'who is batman' and just doing a straight up, there is a caped man calling himself the batman... oh and there is this Wayne guy who wants to fix this city, maybe have Wayne criticize the batman's actions, eliminating as suspicion.

Liam McIntyre is a realistic choice imo. He is a talented actor, not a huge name and hell he tweeted he wants to be Batman. Plus age wise he is a contemporary of Cavill. I could see Snyder going for someone like him. He could work well in future solo movies too imo.

anyone know the truth to the rumor of Urban signing a WB three picture deal recently?
i saw someone on the news page comments say this. just wondering if that is apart of the speculation or them making stuff up?

Agreed, if only because I want Caviezel for the role (it's probably not gonna happen). Coster-Waldau would be an interesting choice too, though.

Well Bruce would probably be around 35ish since Supes will be around the same age.

So an actor in the early 40s is not out of the question, since actors can look younger than they are. It'll just mean a recast before they're 50 probably. By that time, Supes might also be recast anyways.

I thought about this realistically. I can see the exact shortlist being Manganiello, Evans, Urban, McIntyre.

Whether we like that or not.

McIntyre may not have been in their minds until his tweet but im sure he is now. He'll need to blow them away with an audition.

Evans has that Immortals connection to Cavill. A successful Fast 6 movie, a couple of future successful WB Hobbit films, all eyes on the Dracula reboot and Crow reboot. This is the kind of stuff they look for.

Manganiello. Positive reactions from True Blood. The size & strength. Wants the Batman role. Almost cast by Snyder himself for MOS. Even if you hate this choice, he's on the shortlist.

Bomer is the only guy that may not be looked into so deeply. Just because we talk about him online doesn't mean it's in the minds of WB. He could get it with a good audition but who knows? There's a Nightwing or Hal Jordan thing about him too.

Urban. Star Trek 1 & 2. Dredd. Im sure theyre considering him.

McIntyre looks the most like Bruce Wayne to me -- especially the Arkham game version. He can easily pull off the darker aspects of the Batman character, and, at the same time, make a convincingly suave Bruce Wayne. Just dye his hair black.

Shauner, I am in agreement with your list. I would add Gyllenhaal as well. Whether people like the choice at first or not he will be considered imo.

I think you're right. I don't want him in the role, but yeah.

Im starting to really like the McIntyre idea. With hair dye, he looks like Bruce Wayne. It's actually crazy. Only seen clips of him acting. Nothing special, but very solid. Can he pull off an American accent? I guess he can if hes that confident in playing the role.

I'm not sure what the age of the actor himself will be but I think batman might be older than superman. I think he should be a pretty experienced batman. Not one that people necessarily know about in gotham but have heard rumours of, like an urban legend.

It will probably be Gosling and I wouldn't mind that at all. He's really good at playing haunted and mysterious characters, could pull off the look and has a good voice for it.

I honestly don't see Warners getting an A-lister. I see them sticking to the Bale/Cavill casting strategy. A semi know actor on the verge.
