Jake Gyllenhaal as Batman
Michael Pitt as Joker
Aaron Taylor Johnson as Ex-Robin/Nightwing
Richard Armitage confirmed he auditioned for Batman and was on the shortlist of six actors to land the role before Affleck eventual got it.
He is too old for the role now. He would make a good Black Mask though
I think he found his niche playing villains and shady ******* types like he does in Westworld, The Punisher and Dorian Grey.
Yeah Ben Barnes is great on The Punisher and Westworld. That said, I dont see him as Batman at all.
Unless they really do make him a boy i.e. very young (or a girl for that matter!)
noooooo hes bad
*Backs away into the hedge Homer-style*
Michael Stuhlbarg would be a good Alfred.
If Bomer was picked, you wouldn't be able to tell between him and Cavill as to who was Clark and who was Bruce.
Not enough age gap between Gylenhaal & Taylor Johnson for that to work, even though individually, they are solid picks, IMO.
I'm sick of the same old boring fanboy choices... hopefully WB throws the net a little farther out.
I want Jake Johnson!!!
Yeah, get the guy from Lets Be Cops
Thatll work out well
Yeah, get the guy from Mr. Mom
Thatll work out well
I'm just curious what it is about Jake Johnson that makes you even remotely think of Batman.
He has intense eyebrows.
I really don't want anymore short Batmen. It would be a shame to go from 6'1 Bale and 6'4 Affleck to a 5'9 Jake Johnson..
this is my impression of people who complain about height
Mr. Mom was a National treasure and I will not stand here and let you besmirch its everlasting contribution to American pop culture
But I will agree with you on Height, with all the camera tricks they have put there today, I really dont see the problem in casting someone on the shorter side like an Oscar Issac
Luke Roberts from game of thrones, black sails, ransom, band of brothers and wolf hall might do a good job
How Garett Hedlund?
Jake Johnson - Batman
Oscar Isaac - Two-Face
David Krumholtz - The Penguin
Al Pacino - Thomas Wayne
