    You all are casting way too young people!

    Bruce is supposed to be in his 60's in DKR.

    Batman: Tom celic might not be that bad but he always stuck me as too much of a nice guy, maybe an older Russel Crowe, I always liked Keaton but he's just not big enough.

    Joker: Has anyone thought of Mark Hamil? The guy only has the best Joker-voice around, and with makeup they could probably make him look pretty good, but if not him then definatley Nicholson he was great.

    Superman: mel gibson just get him to bulk up a bit.

    Two face: Bruce willis

    Gordon: Clint Eastwood-he woulda been a good Batman but he's just too old.

    Robin: I really don't kno she really wasn't given that much character depth in the book, it wouldn't be terribly hard to play her.

    Flass, I like your idea for Daniel Day Lewis to play Sups. He diffinitly looks the part of an older hardened Superman but still young, Sups doesn't relly age as fast as humans.

    But isn't Cartellini a little old to playing a teenage Robin? Robin is quite young in DKR.

    The only thing I don't agree on is Russel Crowe. Good actor, but a big *******. I would go with Keaton. He's the right age and was Batman.

    Then Alfred should be in his 80's or 90's....and The Joker should be in his mid 60's.

    Cartellini still looks young, and she looks perfect for the role.

    She has a mature look to her, she plays a mother on ER right now. Robin is suppose to be a young girl... barily in her teens.

    Batman: Alec Baldwin or Tom Selleck
    Joker: William Dafoe!
    Supes: Mel Gibson
    Two Face: I like the idea of Ray Liotta (sp?)
    Alfred:....someone who is dead.
    Gordon:.....someone who is also dead.
    Robin: Not too sure...i'd be fine with anyone thats female, young, and small in stature

    Mel Gibson is way too old for DKR Supes. Supes wouldn't look that old for another five hundred years.

    Batman - Viggo Mortensen, Batman's in his 50's and Viggo's pushing 50. Nothing that makeup couldn't fix. Besides....he has the PERFECT jawline and chin.
    Superman - Brenden Fraser, he might not look the way Superman is usually drawn, but Frank Miller didn't draw Superman looking the way he usually did. He's also a pretty good actor...just check out his versatility in Bedazzled.
    Gordon - Harvey Keitel, I always thought he'd make the perfect Gordon. He's also in his 60's pushing 70.
    Joker - Tim Curry, nuff said.
    Two Face - Ed Harris, nuff said.
    Alfred - I really have no clue. Maybe Ian McKellen.
    Robin - Another no cluer...um...Lacey Chabert?

    Yes, I see where your going and Tom Selleck is a Great Actor. I used to think he could of been a Great Jim Gordon. It might be just me but don't you think he has quite a ressemblence to Gordon in the Animated Series?

    I certainly do..

    You guys aren't thinking old enough. Batman in DKR is in his mid to late 50's.

    Russell Crowe= Too young, Clint Eastwood=Too old.
    Burt Reynolds=Just right

    Batman/Bruce Wayne - Kurt Russell
    Com.Jim Gordon - Sean Connery
    Alfred Pennyworth - Michael Gough! Hes in his 80s, the right age for a DKR Alfred..
    The Joker - Jack Nicholson(obvious choice imo)
    Robin - Keira Knightley
    Two-Face - Harvey Keitel
    Superman/Clark Kent - Daniel Day-Lewis is a good choice, I think.
