Really dig the idea of Gillian Jacobs as Harley Quinn. If anyone was perfect for the part, it's her.

You guys better watch out, throwing in a black woman's name for Catwoman has been known to start wars in the past, I should know I've done it before...that said Paula is very beautiful and can act so I would be all for it. I also want to add

Milla Jovovich (If she can get away from doing those horrible RE movies)


and Evangeline Lilly

I still hate the idea of Batfleck....I know, I know I'll just have to deal, but I still think they missed a huge opportunity by not going with Anson Mount....he is batman on hell on wheels!

Anson Mount wouldn't have drawn any crowd whatsoever. If he's in his 40s, in this movie, he needed to be as big as Brolin at least.

I disagree...it's all about acting and owning the part, plus moviegoers are coming to see "Batman" and not necessarily the actor (in some cases) when it comes to superhero films. I'm sorry, but we've already seen Affleck as a Batman type already, he had his chance. I can see it now....they are going to probably give him a lot of great lines as Bruce and/or have him do some amazing stuff as Batman at Supes expense just so that it appears that Affleck makes a "great or good" Batman.

Anson would have owned the role 40 or not. He's a good/seasoned actor that would have made people see Batman on screen and not a big name in the role. Plus I doubt these movies are going to go past 3 films anyway...no way Affleck is going to do that many standalone films.

Oh im not disagreeing, but im just talking about the reality of the situation. The studio was obviously looking for a big name actor in his 40s who can draw a crowd. Because yeah batman draws no matter what, but it boosts it to a higher level since MOS had some ppl questioning this universe. Also no Bale? The studio was gonna get Affleck, Brolin, Gosling...basically the big guys. Brolin is not a box office guy even, so that wasnt going to work.

I would've been down for Anson Mount. It's a shame we'll never get to see him as Batman.
Maybe he could play Bruce in the Gotham tv show

I see what you're saying and agree to an extent. I just think with Snyder and company going the way of non-famous actors would have been right up there alley with Mount as casting choice. Doesn't really seem like getting big name stars is there forte. I mean you really don't need Affleck to sell Batman though. However, if he bombs or this is too much like DD then this will be a good lesson learned. Although it shouldve been learned the first time cause we've already saw Affleck in this type of roll. Trust me they are going to build him up with his lines and sarcasm at Cavill's expense.

Yeah.

I figured if they were going with a 40 something Bruce, they would get a big name.

Originally i wanted a younger Bruce in his mid 30s, maybe a couple of years older than Clark..max. I thought they'd either go with an unknown or a big name but definitely not some unknown for a seasoned Batsy.

Im not complaining though, because i feel like Affleck looks just like the Bruce a lot of us have been waiting for. If you look at the Paul Dini version, Neal Adams, etc..he's brought to life. If it was just another gig for Affleck id be worried (and was). But he doesnt want to make another Daredevil mistake. Plus he's going to be invested since he might be directing this character next, so i expect a better performance than usual.

Maybe, we will have to see. I still say Mount looks like Bruce and even Clark/Supes at times more than Affleck. Have you seen Hell on Wheels? Man that scowl is dead on Bruce Wayne/Batman. Every time i watch the show I think about that JLU episode where Bats, GL and WW are transported back to the wild wild west.

I haven't seen the show. I do admit that he looks really good as Bruce. But i dont think he looks more like the character than Affleck. At least not the Batman that i grew up with and want to see on screen now.

But he's definitely a good fit from what ive seen.

He's Afflecks age right? Then yeah, it's too bad because even Brolin didn't stand a chance for this role when Ben's interested. He's a big name but he's not a box-office attraction. Because of that, Mount probably had zero chance of getting it. Brolin was probably the runner-up.

LOL...no he still has a chance, if Batfleck decides to not continue on in the franchise...one can hope....Rodrigo you are probably right though. Check out Hell on Wheels when you get a chance though. It's a good show.

Ralph Fiennes as just about anybody. He'd kill as Alfred, Freeze, or Riddler in particular.

I would love to see ChloŽ Moretz as Harley Quinn. She's obviously too young right now (currently just shy of 17 according to Google) but since I don't see a Batman reboot being likely within 4 or 5 years, she ought to be the right age by the time the role is being cast.

agreed! I think a Bowie/Kevin Barnes-esqueJoker would mandate a Harley Quinn type character as the head of the 'fan club' so to speak. Probably one who gives up on Joker towards the end after realizing he doesn't have any actual vision and is just amused by mayhem. Or at least seems to turn on Joker, only to do a double fake-out.
