I'm not even a fan of Evans, but I'll admit he could fit into the Batman role much easier and more convincingly than Gosling.

Gosling has none of the right qualities for Batman. Evans has the look and voice going for him.

I'm not overly concerned about the "proper look." That's just a nice bonus for me. What I care about is intensity and charisma and that someone can play both Bruce and Batman in a convincing way where I can believe in both men separately and believe that the former can disappear into the latter without me recognizing him.

Keaton and Bale both had that, looks aside. And both did it in their own way.

Hell no to the guy from Grimm. I couldn't make it past the 2nd episode because of his dullness. Which is saying something because I find him pretty darn attractive. But even his prettiness can't compensate for how wooden and boring he is on screen.

And I'm not feeling the Luke Evans suggestion either. He's not a bad actor, but he just doesn't have the presence for it, imo.

And I agree with Doctor Jones that "the look" shouldn't be the priority here. It's all about screen presence and talent for this role.

This is kind of... well, I don't know but I would like to see Batman characterized the same way he was in the Justice League cartoons from the early 2000's. To me, that was a perfect Justice League member version of Batman. He often stole the show but not to an obnoxious level and he was a valuable member of the team despite not being able to fly or shoot lasers or anything like that.

Everything from the costume to the personality was spot on. I would be ecstatic if they did that.

I just hope he is not turned into Bat-God. He can be an extremely valuable member of the team without the writers feeling like they have to over-compensate for his lack of powers...

I think "The Raven" and "The Hobbit" films will really determine whether Evans can do that.


Now that Chris Nolan will probably be in charge of the casting, Evans' sexuality won't be an issue anymore.


WB is bound to approve of whoever Chris recommends. Evans isn't my favorite for the role but he seems to meet all the criteria.



Even though Gosling turned down Batman (thank goodness) before and turned down Green Lantern and will inevitably turn down any future offers to play these costumed heroes, the only role he really fits, IMO, is Barry Allen (Flash).

I'm not feeling Luke Evans either. He just strikes me as only playing a tough guy with broad looks that any actor like him could have for the part. Nothing special strikes me about him. One thing the actor playing Bruce/Batman should have is versatility. Keaton and Bale's resume's of the past and afterwards proved that they can play much more than what is seen as Bruce or Batman-esque. It adds to the believability of disappearing into Batman while also playing Bruce Wayne. Luke Evans comes off as someone who wouldn't change much with the mask on. He seems more like Batman dressed down to Bruce Wayne than Bruce Wayne as Bruce himself.

I think we'll get more Batman in Justice League than Bruce Wayne.

Wayne character and development isn't as relevant in JL.

gosling is pretty damn wrong for batman imo

great actor does'nt mean you fit any role

gosling fits a flash or green lantern better

anytime he tries to play tough guy i always crack up he is not convincing in those roles

B.S, Gosling has moments in quite a few movies where you can feel his intensity and from what i hear of Only God Forgives, his next movie with Nicolas Winding Refn..he's doing a LOT of really intense badass scenes. He's a fantastic actor with range. The look should never be a problem, because that can always be taken care of unless it's something really drastic.

When you look at Oldman or Ledger you dont see Gordon and Joker. But they're fanatastic actors who understood how the characters were written and what was needed for the performance. Their looks were adjusted and they became the perfect casting, even though it was unpredictable.

Gosling fits that criteria of great actors now, as does Fassbender and Hardy. The latter two are now Magneto and Bane. Ryan could be like a Bale, who can nail the good guy who u invest in & care about their story but they can pull off that underlying darkness. But Ryans close-mindedness to these types of films could be the biggest issue.

If you really want to talk about how a look needs to match up with a character..more importantly a superhero. I agree that Gosling would be better suited for Barry Allen (Flash). He has the look no doubt and with their criminal investigator approach to the movie theyre doing..he could bring the right balance. Maybe Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad) can pull off a Flash and suck Gosling into it.

Once again, people only see looks as the criteria of what makes good casting and not the range and talent of an actor.

People only think Gosling would make a good Barry because he resembles him. Does Gosling resemble comic book Bruce? Not all that much but I'm not worried about that at all. These people are actors. Depending on the eye of the director and casting director, combined with the actor, they can provide something truly great and unexpected in a way that we never would have thought. It's why we don't cast these movies.

I really like the idea of Michael C Hall playing Batman I really think he could do it. He has a good natural sense of humor in his acting and he can explore dark parts of characters as well I think he would be a great Bruce Wayne/Batman

^Good choices though I think Hamm and Brolin are both too old for the role.

Wasn't he one of the people Nolan considered before settling on Bale? I wouldn't be surprised if WB took a good hard look at him again even though IMO he's all wrong for the role.

Jake Gyllenhaal shouldn't be involved in JL. I used to really want him for a DC superhero role but I dunno anymore... Maybe the Flash.......Maybe...
Definitely not Batman though.. From Bale to Gyllenhaal would be hilarious

Batman should be somewhere between Conroy-Batman (DCAU and Arkham) and Grant Morrison Batman.

By which I mean this: Batman is the most committed to crimefighting of all of them. Everything he does, whether as Batman or Bruce Wayne, is related to crimefighting in some way. Superman and the others fight evil... Batman wages war on evil. And he won't stop until that war is won, even though there is no way he will ever win, and even though he will almost certainly die a violent death.

And because he's so devoted, he notices things others don't, he has plans others don't, and he isn't afraid to bend the rules, so long as he doesn't break any of his (i.e. no killing).

Personally, they should go with the Keaton way and hire someone unassuming for Batman/Bruce like Elias Toufexis.

That is not how Grant Morrison writes Batman in relation to the rest of the Justice League. That being said however, I do think if anyone from DCE is brought over to help work on the script, it would be Grant and NOT Geoff Johns.

That raises the wider question of how much Bruce Wayne (unmasked) should or will appear in the film. Given how many characters are going to be at play here, and considering how knowledgeable the GA will be about Batman's alter-ego, I get the impression there won't be much of an unmasked Batman in this.

I'd like to see the entirety of the League both as both themselves and their alter egos and have it service the story to do so. I think that would be better than the whole Bayhem-esque goings on in New 52 Justice League #1-6.

Gosling has a ton of things going for him as Batman. If you actually saw Drive, he can maintain intensity w/o using dialogue.

Yeah agreed. Drive is the only movie of his that I've seen where I could believe he would be Batman. I'm not sure anymore if he would be my first choice, but I would totally understand if he were cast and could definitely get behind it. A Winding Refn/Ryan Gosling Batman series would be insane
