My feelings as well. Great post.

Glad you agree. If only this would magically cause all those "Please cast (insert actor in their 40s) here" posts to stop.

Agreed.

I have always maintained that the new Batman actor has to be in 30's as he will be required to play as Batman in next five-six movies (two -JL movies and 3 solo Batman movies.) That means he will have to commit himself for at least 10 years.

Plus the fact that they will be looking for someone who is compatible with Cavill in terms of age, looks and height.

Many older actors (for example - Jon Hamm) would need to get in shape and look athletic for five movies, not impossible but why should that be considered when they can always cast someone younger, who can grow into the role.

The "Superman killed thousands in MoS" is so ridiculous. I don't like MoS very much, but I will never ever get this complaint. Wow.

Also, I hope Urban never gets cast as Batman.

No to 40 + actors.

For example, take the case of Jeffrey Donovan, he is 45, can he play Batman for another ten years (five-six movies ?)

And, most important thing, How will he look on screen with Henry Cavill, there's a huge age gap here.

Quite a bad photo of Donovan. He looks like Abin Sur in that one.

One thing I want is, I really want a brutal, badass and physically intimidating Batman. Bale was not even remotely that.

They have already established Cavill's Superman as a total alpha. Adding to it that he has god like super powers. If we are to even for a second believe that they are equals, Batman would have to be his equal in every way.

So face wise the guy should like in his mid 30's. I say look not be. Because Cavill is 30 but looks much older, closer to 36-38. So they should get a guy who IS younger but LOOKS mature or manly and not boyish.

Physically he should be Cavill's equal also.

We need a good strong, badass physically capable Batman this time around.

Karl Urban = !!! Even with the age difference it could work. Plus, that way Bruce could have a bit more of a "commanding presence" to offset Clark's clearly overwhelming physical power. Hell RDJ was a little older in the first Iron Man than Urban would be in this AND he's still gonna be playing IM at LEAST once more, if not twice. Urban could do this role and still last for a few new Batman movies and a JL movie. And also actor's age doesn't automatically equate to character's age....Clark was SPECIFICALLY stated as 33 years old in MOS and Cavill's a bit younger, so you either say that Bruce Wayne is around 36 yrs old or so, or better yet don't mention his age at all.

PM Hunter. He's the one who made this section specifically about the newly announced project.

Not a single actor from Teen Wolf should be considered for a role of this magnitude.

I gotta say... I could get on board with Tyler Hoechlin.

Yeah, he does look the part. But, based on the Wolfman trailers, he must be very subpar acting-wise.

Cumberbatch is, by tradition, suggested for every role. See sig.

I say no to Karl Urban! he is 41 and they need a Batman that can do this plus JLA and start their own Batman franchise. I would think at least a 29-34 year old would fit the bill. The Tyler Hoechlin rumor false or not would not be bad. I am not to familiar with his work though. I still think they could get possibly get JGL to play Bruce/Batman.
