This seems fishy to me.

When Superman and Batman are stood face to face this will have ZERO meaning as it wont be Bruce Wayne. Marvel have recasted sure but it was still the Marvel character.

James Rhodes
Bruce Banner
Peter Parker
Aunt May
Uncle Ben
Frank Castle

Who the heck is Blake? Has he appeared in the comics? Why should I care that he teams up with Superman?

There are a couple scenarios where this would even have a slight chance of working. One, JGL is Bruce Wayne and its not part of the Nolanverse, but would then confuse the hell out of people. Or two.... Crap this just can't work. Recast Bats of MoS and JL.

If this is true I absolutely would not see the movie. I've never said that about a movie, I think, this far ahead in the game... but I have absolutely zero interest seeing a non-Bruce Wayne Batman in Justice League. Zero.

The only way I see this working is if the JLA plot has Blake getting Bruce to come out of retirement to help against the threat.

This also work as a proper passing of the torch and we would get Batman AND "Robin" in JLA.

Then after that, future JL films and/or Batman films would feature Blake.

This all, of course, would hinge on Nolan's involvement as Bale would only return if Nolan is involved and this will only work if Bale is Bruce.

I really hope that they won't use the Nolan-verse at all. I want my Batman, that not just trained his body to the limit, but also his mind. I need him to be the super detective with uber prep-time.

It isn't even just the fact that it wouldn't be Bruce either... it would be a direct contradiction to the "no superpowers" rule of the Nolanverse. It wouldn't really make sense. It seems like a way to leech off of the success of the Nolan trilogy rather than establishing something new and lasting.

And it reduces the character to mere externals IMHO - "it doesn't matter if the guy is Bruce Wayne, having him in a batsuit will be enough for audiences." The only reason other characters like Dick Grayson and Terry work in the suit is because of their intense close relationship to Bruce, something we never got with Blake, who had a handful of scenes with Bruce before "hey man, here's the batcave!" I can't fathom how this is in any way a good storytelling move and not purely a marketing / money move (and a poor one at that - story is what makes a true success, not gimmicks). If this is true that is.

While it makes a great deal of sense to link the JL movie to the multi billion dollar Dark Knight franchise, I would much prefer WB throw a ton of money at Bale and have him portray Old Man Wayne in the JL film. The actions of the Dark Knight in Gotham many years ago could serve as inspiration for this new group of heroes, and Bruce could train an apprentice in a high tech suit as a lead in to a "Batman Beyond" trilogy. Bruce could even serve as the primary antagonist in the JL origin film, using his rebuilt fortune to "test" the JL members and force their collaboration, ala "Tower of Babel".

Did JGL sign a multiple film contract for TDKR or just sign on for that movie? That would indicate a lot as Nolan knew TDKR would be the last...

I'd rather have NO Batman than JGL as Batman in JL for the main reason that if JL is a success they can put a rebooted Batman in the sequel. If they use JGL they will be stuck with this Blake character.

They won't put him in as John Blake, JLA without Bruce Wayne is just silly. They will probably recast.

It's not what I want to see, but anything could work.

Blake as Batman could easily just be their version of BATMAN BEYOND, which we know WB has bandied about for a while. It's not out of left field after the end of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. It's not my preference, but there are ways it could work.

Yeah, I highly doubt this news is true. Not just because I STRONGLY want it to be false, but because it also just makes no sense.

I always thought that a big part of the Justice League was the dynamic between the big guns: Wayne and Kent. The idea of Blake being Batman in a JL film just seems inherently flawed to me.

Yes exactly. That's part of the big draw for me.

Totally unfair that Nolan was able to throw away everything from the previous Batman to make his movie but the makers of JL will have their hands tied to use a character that doesn't even exist in the comics.

Marvel must be reading this news and laughing their arse off.

Nope. The only reason I would want Blake would be if he is in a supporting role (Robin or Nightwing) for Bruce rather than Alfred.

Bruce Wayne should be Batman. It'd be like having Bucky as Cap, it's just not right, at least not for the first film.

That would be horrible, Blakes ending annoyed me enough in TDKR, I dont want it here but even so it doesn't make sense on so many levels.

The writer of JL even said himself on twitter that his Batman was very different from Nolan's and that script was written before Dark Knight Rises even came out. It has to be Bruce Wayne since Blake doesn't even have the comics for the writer to look at for reference.

Not Nolans fault, man. He wanted his series to be self contained from the start. Its the WB. They should've know better, than trying to mesh things together so late, just because they didn't wanted to fight him on this while things were still in production.
They should just throw enough money at Bale and have him come back. He would, if the script would be great. Just give him a reason to return again, in story. Some huge danger to the world, which he just cannot ignore from his little cafe in florence. It would be no problem.

The script for The Dark Knight Rises was finished for January 2011, Justice League was finished, or started I can't remember, by June 2011.

There's always a ton of BS rumours, remember when Jon Hamm and Matthew Goode were supposedly playing Superman or that we were getting a CGI Superman in MOS well they were BS.

I don't think this will ever happen, Bruce Wayne is Batman no one else.

Everyone who is having doubts just read this post says it all, it won't happen.
