Yea, he would have been good. I always thought Michael Douglas would have made for a good Harvey/Two-Face back in the day as well.

Liam absolutely destroyed it in the last season of Spartacus; very much made the role his own and he grew into it with amazing results. He really gave a commanding and captivating performance for the finale, kind of unforgettable if you kept up with the show. I wouldn't describe Liam as wooden, at all. He was quite lively and charismatic. And that voice. Holy hell his voice.

Yeah but that's a finale of a tv series he's been a part of for a while now. He's comfortable with who he's working with and it took him a while to give a good performance? Ive only seen clips but I don't see much range or him being able to be on film and carry a billion dollar franchise on his shoulders. Or to display all the dynamics Bruce Wayne needs to have.

People seem to forget that many thought Cavill was horrible in some previous roles before Man of Steel.

Ill watch more of McIntyre. If he does a great screentest and gets the role, ill trust that he's the right guy. But from what ive seen I only see 1 dimensional Liam.

Exactly. On a side note, I think many superheroes are a little wooden by nature, so I don't mind if they're portrayed that way to a certain extent.

Michael Fassbender
Luke Evans
Wes Bentley

Those are my choices. Alec Baldwin would been great Batman in the 80s. His ex wife would been staring as Vicki.

Fassbender is already Magneto, and he's also going to be in Assassin's Creed. He won't be Batman.

Luke Evans and Wes Bentley should stay away to give the movie some credibility

Bentley is my top choice other than the non-realistic choices of actors who could be busy.

Jay-Z for Bruce. It's a hard-knock life for Bats.

Yes, and it's not what I like to see. Bruce Wayne doesn't have to be. He shouldn't. Especially coming off of Bale. Getting a wooden actor after him would feel like a slap in the face to me and very lazy of Snyder.

Adkins isn't one of choices (I never heard of him until now), but I'd love to see a scene like that in a Batman film where Bruce is doing his kung fu thing as someone suddenly knocks on the door, and he's forced to modify his behavior/demeanor -- maybe act like a drunk or something -- on the spot. That would be epic.

Cavill wasn't wooden as Superman so why should Batman be?

Even Bale was a little wooden in Nolan's Batman trilogy I think. Some people make that complaint about Cavill's Superman and Evans' Captain America as well, but I don't think it's such a bad thing to an extent. They're not Tony Stark after all. In a way, they're a lot like soldiers.

That said, the playboy persona of Bruce Wayne shouldn't come off that way at all.

He was a little, but that's fine. It's in character.

I didn't see anything wooden about his interpretation, but okay. We had a wooden Superman/Clark Kent in Superman Returns and Smallville, though.

I have nothing against the guy- I know little about him*- but Batman is too "senior" a role for such a "junior" actor. He might be great for a part like King Snake, which would appear to play to all of his strengths.



*Weird, I just found out we were born in the same town.

I like the Edgerton suggestion from a couple of pages back. He was in The Great Gatsby so hopefully that means he's on WB's radar.

Again, I don't think it's bad thing to a certain extent because Batman and Superman are a little wooden in the comics at times. Batman especially is not full of life and personality; he's like a perfectly oiled machine. Of course, you have moments when he breaks down and thinks back on his life before the murder of his parents and such -- where he's filled with grief and emotion. He's a very interesting character with a lot of dimension.

If these characters existed in real life, I can certainly imagine people describing them as wooden every now and then.. kind of like they do Al Gore. =)
