Probably on Bomer forums.

Im sure he does have some support. You have just gone about this all wrong. All you've done is really post pictures of him, most of which haven't been very appealing, and then never back it up with examples of how and why he'd make a good Wayne/Batman, it takes more than being handsome...Peoples frustrations with you have led to them being completely turned off by the idea of Bomer for the role.

Indeed .
I was surfing with my remote the other day ,
As soon as I landed on a rerun of WC , I turned the channel.
Right now, I have no intent of ever watching it again .

He'll just bump it constantly. I doubt he'll get much company there.

Wow! I didn't know he was filming till Jan Feb! There's no way he can do Batman.

As you say atleast 6 months of training is required. The actor cast would have to maximum start training by October if he is to be ready by March April to begin filming.

I think it would be more realistic if people factor in the schedules of the TV actors before suggesting them. I myself have been suggesting Joe M but I kind of know that his show will absolutely not give him time off.

My understanding is that Hamm finishes Season 7 in October.

It might not always fit neatly with elements of the backstory, but if an actor just gets the persona, and acts it out so well that you forget that they don't exactly fit the canon look of the character, then I personally could care less what skin color that actor has.

I would love to see Idris Elba as Bruce Wayne ,
But, I think WB fears they will lose money if they cast a black actor .
I disagree with them .
But I doubt they will take what they percieive to be a great risk.

Source? I assume the schedule isn't any different from last year where they were filming even in March (this year). I think filming will begin in Oct.

If they were recasting Annie, Idris Elba's name would be thrown in the hat by fans.

Yeah, they probably won't

I'm unsure about Idris Elba. He seems to have the cold and reserved thing down, but not really the kind of sharp intensity that Bruce Wayne has. Maybe that's just because of the roles I've seen him in though.

No blackmen, no stuntmen.

A white actor, please.

Outstanding choice! He's got the face, he's got the physique, he's got the voice! His voice is honestly badass, the way he was barking those orders and speeches in Pacific Rim, got your blood boiling, he could have played King Leonidas in 300, his voice was so awesome. And he can also be badass and menacing.

A big problem though - for the cowl, you HAVE to be clean shaven and Elba looks weird without either a mustache or beard.

Snyder bringing up Harry Lennix to voice Batman to announce it definitely makes one wonder.

And Bale wasn't White American, but he made it work (as did Cavill with Superman).

I agree, the persona is everything. Race is of no relevance if the necessary persona is delivered.

It is broke if they cast a white actor that doesn't fit the part. I mean you'd rather they cast a non-white guy with the skill to play Batman/Wayne than a white guy without the skills. Superman was Asian in "Lois and Clark", and Dean Cain got rave reviews. President Obama is a better fit than Bush, easily.
