I don't think anyone could've done a better job, but I'm curious what the rest of you think??
Christian Bale was the right man for the job, I was one of the people saying "Bale dammit"
He looked like Bruce Wayne and he's talented. good enough.
hes da only person dat actualy was buff enough 2 fill up da bat suit....good choice i say
Out of a almost limitless list of wrong casts, Bale is one of the few that will ever give Batman justice. Wait, does that make sense? *reads post, thinks up a better one, doesn't post better one*
Bale was the only one IMO that would of been able to pull off the new Bruce Wayne. He had it all, the Body, the Looks, the Talent, the Mindset - all of it.
In my opinion Bale is the perfect representation for not only Bruce Wayne
but the Dennis O'Neil/Frank Miller comic Batman!!
i would liked to have seen someone else, just to see someone else would have done it. Eion Baily looked pretty good for the role, so he would have been interesting. Same goes for BATMAN. I wouldnt mind seeing how Alec Balwin would have been as Batman.
But Bale was excellent in the role.
I honestly can't see anyone else in the role now.
Someone else could have done it, and likely done it as well. Bale was a good choice, though. The only choice, though? Hardly.
Obviously, WB could have selected someone else, but I'm hard pressed to see anyone doing a better and more convincing job than Bale.
Someone else might have been good, but they would have just been different, not better. I was entirely satisfied with Bale's performance.
he fit the bill.. did a great job!
what more can you ask for
Alec baldwin??? Are you out of your ****ing mind! No Christian did a very good job I enjoyed him very much. Could another actor do it? Yes. Would i like to see them ? No.
way back in the day when baldwin did the shadow.. i pictured him as batman
But that was way back in the day. Today's baldwin is being made fun of as a marionet. Plus he really isnt that great of an actor he is really hit or miss.
yep... the past is the past..
..the future is now.
but live your life for the present
Bale lived up to the billing in every way imaginable, imo.
It's possible that there are more suitable actors for the role, but how long should the studio wait for that better actor?
Just like my sig says, perfection is the enemy of completion.
Alec Balwin was supposedly a candidate for Batman in Burton's first film.
exactly how I feel
You should have seen the pre-casting campaign for Bale and the crazy celebrations on these forums after he had finally been cast. Bale was the number one fans choice all along.
