I get that it makes sense to start young if you're planning for a long-term universe,

but Robert Downey Junior started Iron Man when he was like 42, and he's now 47.

Jon Hamm's only 41, and would probably love to get a leading role in a film franchise as big as this, given that he's never been a lead in a film, as far I know. He'd stick around. He's also one of the best actors on TV today, and could bring great emotional weight to Bruce.

C'mon


I also think makes more sense if you want to differentiate from the Nolan movies with a Batman who wasn't too young, and getting Robin in there as well.

Out of anyone suggested he looks the most like Bruce for sure. I love the idea of an older Bruce I really hope he gets the role

What is Bruce Wayne's age anyways? (assuming that Dick Grayson is in his early/mid twenties)

Was Stark in Iron Man considered to be an 'older Stark'?

I want the next Batman to be, first and foremost, an intellectual. I loved Bale' s performance, but it didn't convince me in this respect. Which actor can best reflect Batman's acute mental prowess?

Haha yeah that's so true even in the TDK movies you have several scenes where bruce is simply surrounding himself with women just to "keep up appearances". If Bruce Wayne existed in the real world he'd probably have a lot more gay rumors flung at him than accusations of being a superhero.

Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are technically perpetually 30. The 52 reboot made them both early 20s.

Batman has been considered to be in his late 30's/early 40's for some time. Can't comment on the new 52, because that is when I gave up comics.

I know this isn't right with the New 52, but I like to think that Bruce is late 30s, Dick is mid-late 20s, Jason is mid 20s, Tim is 19-20, and Damian is 10

Just watching the animated The Dark Knight Returns an older batman is still pretty bad-assed.

We've already seen the twenty-something batman starting out in the last series. I think they need to go with an already experienced batman not a fresh face.

I feel Karl Urban could play a good Batman. He did a great job in Star Trek and Dredd and between those two performances, I'd say he'd be a great Batman.

He has kind of a weird face structure. Yes I am a nerd nitpicking like that.

Yeah, after what he did with Dredd and the level of commitment he brought to the part, I could see that.

Actually my one worry would be someone overplaying that if a gay guy like Luke Evans or Bomer was cast. The thing that makes them especially good is they are gay but not effeminate, so they really don't smack of being gay (not that the stereotype has any meaning anyways).

I've always thought of Batman as sort of subtly gay, mostly because he really does suppress his urges. That's kind of central to his character. It's hard to picture someone undergoing his training with the singular minded-ness he has and developing much of a "normal" sexuality during this time. I mean, really until he returned to Gotham it's almost hard to believe he had any sex whatsoever. He certainly wasn't banging Master Kirgi, and I'm not sure he would've assumed that was of much importance. To him it's all about the mission and he doesn't have to have sex to eradicate crime. In fact all that is, is a distraction to him.

Batman isn't wired like the rest of us. I think this is an area where Nolan semi-dropped the ball. He made him more perpetually angry instead of deranged and subtly "off". I think that's central to the character.

One of my friends, we think he is gay, and he's not a stereotype, but you can just tell he doesn't "react" to women. It's a slight thing that's "off" about him. I like for that to be part of Batman. He's an incredible actor as Bruce Wayne, but you should always sense he's Batman. Like many say, most of Gotham's laypeople may spread all kinds of rumors about him because of this, but they won't necessarily make that Batman connection.

That's an interesting analysis, and I agree that Bruce should be sexually atypical. I don't consider there to be much evidence of homosexuality, however. My sense of it is that, inwardly, he is a child, and his sexual development has been impeded. I see this leading quite neatly to his attraction to dominant women like Catwoman. Bruce doesn't really know how to behave in conventional courtship situations, and the pretense must be a strain. He needs little persuasion to ditch the supermodel on his arm, because he needs a woman to strip away all the emotional ambiguity and uncertainty, and force her will on him.

I suppose what I am saying is that female sexuality is Batman's kryptonite.

That was the one thing Keaton nailed in his Bruce Wayne. He was a billionaire but a little Howard Hughes-ish weird and kind almost autistic at times when dealing with people.

I very much agree with this, especially him being a perpetual child sexually.

I can't really see him wanting to honestly 'get to know' a woman.

If Batman were intended to be in his 40s in the new film, would anyone be opposed to Jon Hamm?

To me he looks like he stepped out of a Batman comic book. Exactly as Id imagine Bruce looking.

HELL NO! in fact, Jon Hamm has always been my #1 pick if WB wants to go for an older & more experienced Batman

The actor who should play Batman should someone we don't know or isn't in the radar. I prefer a Batman in his early 20's around 20-23. With such a casting he needed a strong supporting cast like Jennifer Lawernce or a Julie Styles.
