Maybe. But I kind of disagree. But it doesn't matter because it's all about business first. And Bale is good business, whether he's playing a rebooted Batman who is more like other mediums or if he's playing the same Batman.

They should make MOS the entry movie into the shared DC movie universe if that is he long term plan. It would be foolish not to. Superman is their premier superhero. So it should be him to usher the shared DC cinematic universe.

If they didn't, I'd be at a lost for words.
Would Cavill be Superman in the JLTrilogy?
If so, he needs a new contract.
Will the Man of Steel series continue?
Which series takes precedence, the in commencement MOS series or JL?
The problem of a potential half decade gap between MOS and Superman II if JL series comes first.
If Cavill is not Superman, does MOS continue?

etc, etc.

I'd like to see a trilogy of JL films with Bale and Cavill, but it just seems like the most inopportune time to make them.

Welcome! And I hope that is true, I really do hope they offer him it first, he's an ideal fit.

Quote:
Gosling would do huge numbers (if written well) in a solo Flash. But WB shouldn't think about that. Try to get Ryan for JL first, put the focus on that. After the movie, see if he would be down for a one-off solo film, and get Goyer to pull out his old script or maybe create a new one that satisfies Ryan. Maybe get him to choose his director. If he doesn't want to do it, they can always put it on the backburner or wait a little bit to use a younger actor in a origin story. But getting Gosling and Bale in the same movie, would be beyond huge.
I'd definitely get Goyer to write a new one. The old one wasn't that great, it had some wacky concepts (The Turtle Man was the main villain , kills Barry Allen at the beginning , turns Barry's coworker into "Reverse Flash", and Wally West becomes The Flash in it but is never Kid Flash, etc, the spirit of Barry Allen gives Wally his powers in a lightning bolt years after Barry's death while he goes for a walk to visit Barry's memorial one night - the script is definitely written with Reynolds in mind as the lead, which would have worked fine back in '07 when Goyer's Flash was scheduled to be made, but it's the wrong direction to go, IMO, so I'm glad it never happened) - I'd say rewrite or get someone to do a new one. Goyer is a good writer but that was before he was "Goyer", IMO, some of his stuff has been hit and miss, that one was definitely more of a miss. He does more hits now, so who knows what could come of him doing a new one. We'll see I guess. They need to do a Barry origin movie though, in my opinion.

Quote:
You want to get more female audience members too?? You got Cavill, Bale, Gosling, who knows who would be playing GL plus you have Wonder Woman kicking ass and not playing the damsel in distress. The chicks dig that stuff lol.
No question all of those guys are massive babe magnets. I wonder if Bradley Cooper would be Hal Jordan if they use him...I could see it. Just slap a mask and ring on his "Face" character in the A-Team movie and you got Hal Jordan. Although I could see Josh Duhamel in the role, I doubt they'd give him it though, and truthfully, like I said before, I'd be okay with them using John Stewart if they chose so to further put distance between JL and the GL movie, even though I definitely don't think Hal Jordan is hardly beyond redemption.

Cavill as Superman, Bale as Batman, Blunt as Wonder Woman, Gosling as Flash, and Cooper as Hal. I don't think anyone would have a problem with that cast. Imo thats the best choices, those names are familiar and would bring people in to see the movie, but they aren't too famous to be cast right now. And all are solid actors and actresses that would fit perfectly with Cavill and Bale

Btw- Shauner- you and i have the exact same cast ahaha nice taste. Im thinking about putting that cast in my sig too. If people at WB read these forums they need to see the best people for these roles.

So...

Bale will return as Batman in the JL. Reopening the Nolanverse, merging it with the Synderverse.

Then making a Batman reboot after Synder's MOS and JL are finished?

Not my first choice, but he's not the worst. I could see it. But he's a 5/10 as far as a Hal Jordan casting goes for me, not a spot on 10/10.

OMG I had no idea that was in Goyers script. That sounds terrible. He's a great idea man but he needs to be monitored when writing. So I guess a new one is inevitable, one that fits this universe.

The last one was said to be more serious. Se7en meets Matrix was the description. Maybe they can take some of those ideas and create a new script. But like I said, concentrate on getting Gosling as Flash for just JL, do the movie, then think of the rest.

Josh Duhamel looks the part very well, but I don't think he'll get it. He's older than Bale. Bradley Cooper auditioned for GL and started doing a batman voice lol! That's the only reason why he didn't get it. If they can call him back up and tell him to audition with his normal approach, he'll get it in a second. He's worked with Bale and Gosling both now, so he would be down to try it again I hope.

Nice, I think so too. Imagine the amount of dudes going crazy for a cast like that?! Plus the amount of chicks flocking to the theater to see a superhero movie!? Even without their boyfriends!? haha seriously.

I have no problem with that whatsoever. I prefer it. Even though I know ur first choice would be to use Bale in just Snyder's version without Nolan.

I like that too, but right now it's my second choice.

What's good about using Nolan-verse Bats, Is we don't need Batman movies for a long time. Which helps them concentrate on finishing the Man Of Steel, and putting the focus on Flash and WW. It's the way it should be anyway. Cuz Batman tends to over shadow.

Yeah, parts of it were well written as far as the thing goes on the whole, he is a good writer, but there was just too much Ghost Rider level stuff in it for my taste.

Oooh, really? Who was writing it if you remember? I'd love to get myhands on that if I could...do you know how far they got with it? Is there at least a first draft somewhere you think?

Was he serious when he did that lol? I had no idea he did that hahaha. If so, and either way honestly, that's hilarious! I somehow like him more after hearing that, lol. And that's pretty much exactly why I don't think Duhamel would get the part, the studio would think he's too old now.

Yeah, we don't really need a new Batman for a few years yet, IMO.

It's not available. I think the writers of GL wrote it and said it was very different in tone to their GL script.

Yeah Bradley said it was the only way he knew how to do it or something lol. Ill try to find the interview.

The advantage of such an approach is that it leaves TDK trilogy as it is, for those who are opposed to see a batman with other super-powered Heroes, just don't go and see the JL movie.
A loose continuity with Bale would confuse the hell out of the audience.

Ya the GL writers did write the script but its not available. Although some mods here have heard good things about the script and have said WB liked it as well.

I would definitely like to read it though.

Meh, it's not spamming...dude is just voicing his opinion. No different than Gosling, Gylenhaal, Blunt or Cooper always being brought up. At least Jane's a sexy minx lol.

Anywho, I don't think Duhammel is too old. He looks very young for his age. Keep in mind these people are actors and the characters they portray on screen don't have to be the age they are in real life. If they want to make GL 35 when Duhammel is 40/42 then that is perfectly fine and feasible.

I like Blunt, but am not 100% sold on her for the role yet. I can still see it going to someone else....depending on the direction they take the story and character.

Oh and Rodrigo my choices for Harley have always been: Brittany Murphy (RIP), and Kristin Belle. However, I wouldn't mind seeing Jane as Batgirl.

I can definitely see the role going to someone else other than Emily Blunt, even though she's a top choice for me. I think if Lynn Collins got back in shape (which she has time) she might be the best choice of all of them.

She wouldn't get payed as much as Blunt. She's basically played a warrior/princess before in John Carter, even though that movie was a cheesefest. She's done well as a supporting character in many things over the years, when it comes to playing off the male characters well. She had the tone (more toned than Blunt, less than Carano) which was perfect imo. She's worked with JGL in the past as well, so adding him in a small role could be cool...in the same way that he's worked with Blunt.

She's very much in the middle of all the choices, which is how I see WW in this gang. She's not as big as Superman/Batman, but she'll be treated as a bigger property than Green Lantern/Flash.
