Not really a fan of Star Wars so...I'll go see it but it's a kinda whateversville to me until I see a trailer. I'm sure the film will be well cast, Abrams is good at that.

No. Just no.

He would have the acting skills, without a doubt, but there is so much that goes against him.

I really have to say, out of all the choices presented here, I would go with Manganiello, because he actually can act, looks the part AND loves superheroes! The last part is kinda important to me, since I want an actor who is willing to stay with the role for quite a while.

I also would love to see Caviezel or Fassbender in the role, but both won't be doing it for the numerous reasons others have already listed.
The worst thing they could do is cast an actor who is already widely know for another big iconic role, like Fassbender as Magneto, for example.

I hope they go for someone like Cavill, who was completely under my radar until he was cast. He really surprised and wowed me with his performance in MoS! I would love to see someone like that get a chance.

Yep, Star Trek has a really good cast. Damn, I can't wait for that trailer!

Outstanding actor. His performance in Olivier Assayas's CARLOS is one of the great performance of the new century. He was such a bad mother****er in that film, I am sure he can pull off Batman.

But the accent indeed is very problematic. It is very thick.

A motion poster I made for Superman VS Batman (a.k.a. Man Of Steel 2). I have tried to highlight the combative nature of their relationship.

I am notorious for being in the "nitpicker"/"naysayer"/"elitist"/"anti-Nolanite" camp, so I can assure you that Nolan's trust in Bentley has not influenced my settling on him as my favourite for the role. I started championing Bentley just before he was announced for "Interstellar", so for me it is a weird coincidence. Nevertheless, no one could argue that Nolan is anything other than a supremely talented and prolific director, so I do take it as a valuable endorsement of Bentley's talents.

Exactly- just put him on whatever Cavill was taking.

IMO, Kazinsky would be the a great cross between Keaton and Bale which is exactly what we want.

I think he would audition for it. He likes Batman and stuff. ..He's dressed as Clark Kent on his Twitter page lol

But I hope he isn't bound by a contract or something. HBO did not let Joe Manganiello screentest for Man Of Steel even though he was called because the shoot would happen at the same time as True Blood.

But overall Kazinsky should definitely test. Plus he got superbuff for Pacific Rim so he can nail the physical aspect as well.

I hated him in PR lol

But he is good leading man material. He can pull off charming and heroic and psychopathic. I've seen it all now....I think he should be considered.

What about Jeff Donovan? With Burn Notice ending, he'd be open, and he's a pretty good actor.

It's not like Batman started being Batman in his 30s, his start was in his early 20s, maybe 19 (according to Grant Morrison at least)
It's not like they never hired two actors of different heights and made one look longer than he really is, there is a way to keep it consistent and not make one tower over the other

There will be no-origin.
bentley's 5-10, bale's 6 foot tall, and mags is 6-5.

Wes Bentley seems an excellent choice. He's on the wrong side of 35 by the time the film comes out, but oh well. From what I've seen of him so far he's got the chops and the body that can be bulked to fit the role. Personally though, I'd go for Luke Evans. He deserves the role to push his career to the top.

eh, he should look a little older then the 30ish he'll supposedly be. a fresh faced batman dealing with the stresses and rigors of being batman would look a little odd.
