WB should make a stand alone Shazam movie Armie Hammer is perfect for that role

Ah, glad that someone else saw that and actually cast him for that reason.

Honestly do people just think Witwer's good because of his Keatonesque lip pout?

I'm surprised Witwer's name is mentioned so many times. Although I admit, I have no idea who to cast.

It is a tough one, Bale basically looked like Bruce Wayne and we'd seen how he could perform that role with American Psycho not to mention he showed his action chops in stuff like Equilibrium. So it was easy to see, this time its more difficult.

If there is one thing to be confident in Snyder it's casting. For the most part I thought he did a good job casting Watchmen and I love the MOS cast. So I'm optimistic he'll make a good choice.

Not if you watch Person of Interest, it's not.

You talking about Jim Cavizal?

That dude should have been Superman in the 90s in my opinion.

I think he's abit too old to play Batman now against Henry's Superman.

Yeah, considering the fact that Caviezel once played Henry's father, I think he's a tad too old.

Wasn't there a rumor at one time that Matthew Goode was in the running for Superman? He obviously worked with Snyder in the past. I hope Snyder doesn't think of him as Batman.

I actually like him more for his acting than having "the look." There are definitely better choices if we just go based on looks. Of course if that was the case the Justice League would be filled out with WWE wrestlers.

Witwer really does have a cool look for the part IMO.

The only thing holding him back is a lack of film work, I could see WB wanting to hire someone with a decent amount of big screen experience. Then again, in this TV-centric era we're living in who knows?

I cannot see him either as Bruce Wayne or as Batman.

Nolan's choices will be -

Wes Bentley (as he is in Nolan's Interstellar), Jake Gyllenhaal (As he missed out to Bale in BB)

Snyder can select someone like Luke Evans (He was in WB's Hobbit), Taylor Hoechlin (he has the looks, height and right age.)

WB would also get Armie Hammer and Matt Bomer in that list.

All of the above candidates have potential.
Hammer is all kinds of wrong for this part. Lone Ranger has made sure that he wont get chosen and if they ignore that box-office (they wont because it's about leading a franchise), he's just too goofy and gives off zero intimidation.

So here's my updated "list" and how I see it going.

Bomer is worth the screentest but I don't see anybody over 34 getting this part. I also don't think he has what it takes to play the Batman role even if he's very "Bruce Wayne".

Hoechlin doesn't have the resume or the talent to pull this off. Mr. eyebrows. Every time I look at him I keep thinking of Breaking Bad. Walter White in the first season telling his boss "**** you and your eyebrows!!"

Luke Evans, I bet anything he gets a screentest. It's not just the Hobbit with WB, there's also the successful Fast 6. Upcoming Dracula/Crow reboots. Immortals with Henry Cavill. It's a no-brainer that he'll be called in. But I don't think he's getting this role. He just doesn't have the accent and there's a few who are better for the role.

Gosling's in Star Wars. Fassbender's Magneto (he's about to become more known as this character because the new X-Men is gonna be huge with that cast) + Assassin's Creed + a potential James Bond.

Manganiello is too large, too old, too busy filming True Blood.

Urban is too old, like Hamm.

Witwer may be too small of an actor to carry this franchise. Might play the better villain, by what ive seen.

Bentley and Gyllenhaal it seems.

People should stop basing things off how WB is thinking, because we have no ****ing clue.

Casting threads are generally fun in the early stages, before a decision becomes imminent and they get flooded by people with only the barest interest, and the usual promoters of Idris Elba et al.
