I wonder how he would be as the Batman though. It's hard to imagine. Bruce Wayne yeah, the billionaire playboy and brooding Bruce on a mission....but Batman? Im down. But its hard to imagine for me. I guess he would have a Keaton-esque approach.

Henry Cavill as Superman (29 and 6'1)



Jon Hamm as Batman (41 and 6'0)


Olga Kurylenko as Wonder Woman (32 and 5'9)


Ben Affleck as Green Lantern (39 and 6'2)


Aaron Paul as The Flash (32 and 5'8)


My choices are always changing but this is my definitive list right now.

The ages are between 29-41, with the Avengers the youngest Avenger is 27, and the oldest is 47, I see no issues with age in my cast. Id prefer GL and Batman be older than Superman. All the characters in this cast are either established faces or definite up and comers.

The movie would be filmed in 2015, at the earliest. He would be 44. Do you really want a 50 year old Batman by the third movie? Besides, he looks like he could be Cavills father. The oldest I would want would be the Fass, any older than that would be pushing it.

Keatons Batman was in a different time, he didn't need to be that physically imposing because of his acting style and the overall style of the movie.

If time travel is possible and we can get Hamm of 2001 then yes, he is perfect for the role.

I'm a big fan of Hamm but I just think he would look too old next to Cavill. For some reason or another, I want Bats and Supes to be around the same age. Superman would age slower over time, but I kind of like the idea of Batman and Superman getting started on their quests at roughly the same time. Wonder Woman should look around their age too, even though she's actually much older. The other characters' ages aren't that important to me for whatever reason. But I guess in the case of Batman and Superman, I sort of see them entering "hero mode" not all that long after their adult lives begin because it was always what they were working up to. I think you can get away with guys like Hal Jordan and John Stewart being older because their destiny was thrust upon them after they had already established careers and such.

Affleck probably will turn this project down but if he directed Hamm would have been a strong candidate. Age won't matter for a masked superhero. and we already got Bale as the young Batman. Its been done.

Theyll film in 2 years from now, maybe a year and a half if we're lucky. It's not an issue for Hamm. The problem lies with how many batman movies does he want to do on his own? He'll be like 44 filming the first solo flick, and in his late 40s for a sequel. Im not sure if he would want to sign a 3 movie contract or more. I can see him wanting to drop out at any time.

It sucks, but the best choice for WB...the safest would be to get an early 30s actor who will DEFINATELY sign for a 4 movie deal.

Thats assuming the eventual Batman reboot will be connected to this. Who knows. I think we could get a good JL trilogy out of JH as Batman. I think Batman around Hamm's age in TAS. He took in Dick Grayson when DG was a kid and eventually Grayson was a college grad midway through TAS. Bruce must have been Batman for at least over a decade.

I can see where people wouldnt want Affleck as Hal, hes not an obvious choice but for some reason I can see it. He makes a good hero.

As for Wonder Woman, all Ive seen her in was Quantum of Solace and she was pretty good, she has such a good WW look though imo.

Yates has been the rumored choice for months now and im OK with it but Affleck sounds so much better.

Im assuming the article was true, about WB wanting to reboot a year after Justice League, with the same Batman in his second year of crime-fighting. Article is probably bogus but it sounds like something they would plan anyway.

IF it's seperate then what the hell are they waiting for!? Hamm would be perfect for just the team-up movies. With Bentley or someone as perhaps a younger Hamm?? Same continuity, but playing the younger version where he takes in Grayson and battles Riddler, Penguin , Freeze, etc.

I guess I could get behind two different Batmans but why would anyone want that?

Or two different Supermans? Why not just have a unified universe?
People keep creating these imaginary problems as to why Batman and Superman cant exist in solo films and team up movies too. Pretty sure thats what WB would want, why would they want multiple actors playing the same character? Thats overcomplicating things and confusing the audience.

Bogus is right actually. You're quoting an article from Cosmicbooknews. I can assure you that it's 100% false.

This one right? Link

David Yates as JL director tho...

Minus the educated. It's more wishful thinking and trying to pretend that Warner Bros functions like Marvel Studios.

Unfortunately that Deadline article made it seem like Yates is out so they moved down to Affleck. I wonder which other available 'in house' directors could take this one.

Yeah. The article is probably bogus but it's what i thought they would do anyway. So if thats not the case, are you thinking they'll just delay the solos then?

Cuz i have a hard time believing they wont jump at the chance to include Justice Leagues Batman in his own films just as Cavill is doing it with MOS. And to jump at the chance to bring in villains that Nolan never used.

Matt Reeves, Jonathan Liebesman, Darren Aronofsky, Duncan Jones, Tony Scott, Guillermo Del Toro, all guys that were asked to do Superman, Im sure there will be some overlap, there already is actually, because Ben Affleck was also asked to do Superman.
