Well, if it makes you fele btter, I saw the idea mentioned before, so it wasn't my original choice. I just stole it from someone.

Selina Kyle: Angelina Jolie
Detective Flass: Clancy Brown (sp?)
Detective Sarah Essen: Julianne Moore
 
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Christian Bale

He would've been awesome if he were younger.
 
Eddie Dean said:
Yeah, he would have.

Brad Dourif is one of those actors who can pull off several characters in the Batman universe. I can see him as The Joker, The Riddler, The Mad Hatter, Dr. Jeremiah Arkhum, The Ventriloquist and (though it's a bit of a stretch) Mr. Freeze. I could also see him as The Penguin if he were a little chubbier and shorter (he's 5'10, but I always thought he was shorter).
 
scraecrow was in year 1????

i'd stick with the Begins cast
maybe change Loeb and Flass.
but otherwise the begins cast is perfect.

Scarecrow was NOT in Year One. None of the major villains were. Unless you want to count Falcone.


EDIT: Catwoman was in Year One. I forgot about her...
 
I think Batman Begins is the closest we'll ever come to having a "Year One" scenario on film.

On the subject of Catwoman being in year one, can we think of anyone who can play Catwoman/Selina Kyle and hold her own opposite Christian Bale?

Ya. That is a really good choice. Cannot believe I let that slide past in my mind before too.

Beckinsale. :)

Yeah Beckinsale would be great plus she started with Bale in Laurel Canyon.:up:
 
Also Jolie is too famous. You do not want someone like that to be in a comic book movie. Remember the movie Catwoman? :mad: :down

CINO (Catwoman In Name Only) that movie sucked because the script wasn't good and Berry acted **** in it plus Jolie is better actress then Berry. My point is if the script is NOT good even great actresses or actors could be **** in it Example: Batman & Robin (1997)
 
Yea but you do not want a red carpet celebrity. Basically try to avoid someone whose name will appear first before Bale's on the movie poster and DVD cover; hello Kate Beckinsale :). :up:

By then bale would have made 3 Bat-movies Jolie was and is my favourite actress way before she won Oscar but tho at the time there I didn't have internet. Everyone has different opinion and I don't care about her personel life.
