They got the best of both worlds with Cavill, an actor who actually IS younger but LOOKS and CAN PLAY much older. Cavill can very easily pass for 35-36 or even older. His look is manly and mature and not boyish. Even in the film they had him as 33 and it looked perfectly fine.

To all the people wanting either Josh Brolin, Gerard Butler or Karl Urban, but only to you: what about Jude Law?
You can't say his age is a factor against it, if you want those other older guys?

I could see Law being quicker and more ninja-like than the others, even if he wouldn't be as physical strong as them.
Perhaps he will be like Michael Keaton. A strange Bruce Wayne, but a great Batman.

DP does not stand for double penetration hmm, oh whatever this is not the topic here

the thing is Josh Brolin too short .... Gerard Butler, i could picture him like Batman but not Bruce, Karl Urban yeah i like him why not but compare him to Scott Adkins and see his butt kicked, i think it is time for us to see at the big screen some real fighting and acrobatics done by Batman, and proper voice every time i watch the Dark Knight its like i watch wrestlemania ...

Who cares whether or not Adkins can beat up all these suggested actors? I think that is irrelevant considering we've had plenty of good action films where the lead is not a legitimate fighter. Why don't we cast all these hero roles with fighters and wrestlers from now on? Acting? What's that?

And who says that Adkins can not act? Just because he has never appeared in the main role of some A grade movie does not mean he can't act

Mods, it seems highly likely that most if not all of these accounts that promote Adkins are from the same IP. Can we check, and ban them?

An actor who co-starred in a hit T.V show and a number one film. He's been acting for over a decade from what I can gather. Think whatever you want about Cavill's acting chops but he is a goddamn actor.

Also Henry Cavill isn't playing Batman so I don't get the comparison. Batman is a totally different casting challenge than Superman because they are totally different characters. I have seen no proof that Adkins can handle a semi complex role and thus he wouldn't be able to handle playing Batman.

I have a feeling the support come from one or two determined fans.

How do you even become a fan of someone like Adkins? The mind boggles.

Nobody really. I'm not comfortable with Adkins for the role at all right now. By all means let him test for the role, but you can't blame people for being skeptical. Every actor who has played Batman since 1989 has some acting cred. Adkins is a massive longshot imo. Cavill is just someone I was personally more at ease with because of The Tudors.

Using Adkins' fighting background as a selling point is not going to make the skeptics here join you in your support of Adkins.

im not sure how 47000 views are made by two people
and what's wrong of being a fan of his, you say it like he is some kind of a lowlife bastard rat that spreads diseases by just looking at it,

I personally think that everyone should deserve a chance for breakthrough, at one point the other famous actors were in the same position, i mean who was Gerard Butler before 300, or Karl Urban before LOTR, i think that in 21 century, the fans can help alot thanks to the internet

Slumcat/NoTTon, you always do this thing where you instantly throw your toys out of the pram and make wild accusations. I don't understand why.

Yep, cheesy action films are awesome. I love cheesy action stars.

I don't know how you could want Adkins to play Batman after having actors like Keaton, Kilmer, Clooney and Bale take on the role. I mean one of these things is not like the other.

To go from Bale to Adkins, would be like, and this is according to one of my female friends, for a woman to go from being in a relationship with Cavil to being in a relationship with Gilbert Godfried.

Compare "their" posts on Adkins. "They" make all the same arguments, throw the same insults, and even make the same mistakes with spelling and grammar. In fact, I suspect that most accounts created to promote Adkins for the role belong to the same individual.

Edit: I think "badgrammar" is also the same fellow.
