    Liev would be my other choice for Dent. Hulme or Bettany for Joker would be ok too. I will try to add more people to my cast.

    Mostly good, but why the two Austin Powers cast members? And I could live with De Niro as Falcone, but Pacino IS Falcone from TLH. Seriously, their are so many blatant referreneces to The Godfather in TLH, and to me Falcone is modelled directly after Michael Corleone. Heck, the line "In my own house, where my family sleeps" (spoken after a shootout at Falcone's household) is ripped straight out of The Godfather Part II.

    Meh...Mike Meyers as Dr. Evil looks like him...and not like it would be a hard role. He could play serious. :p

    And ya I have a hard time not choosing Pacino as Falcone. I know I know..believe me...I LOVE the Godfather series. And yea I definetly realized all of the stuff they took from that movie and put into TLH and DV. :up:

    I've yet to read Dark Victory.

    As a side note, I would like to see a TLH movie one day. I think it would be awesome. It's the best Batman novel ever.

    Jeph Loeb is awesome man. My favorite Batman writer...if he wrote more stories for Bats that would be awesome. His Batman stories are the true mysteries, always with Detective work and making you think of different people to be the murderer and stuff. In TLH the issue I loved most was April Fool's Day where Riddler and Batman came up with different scenarios as to who Holiday was and why. :up:

    Please support Loeb and vote for him!!!

    Loeb...must....win...!!!

    I disagree with your notion that am TLH movie should not be in continuity with BB. If anything, it has to be. And Chris Noth does not gove off the right vibe for Maroni at all, whereas Liotta does and thus should play him in the BB sequel. And I don't like Wilkinson as Falcone, either. He doesn't give off the right vibe, either. I know Pacino as a mob boss is somewhat played out, but even so, he's just too perfect for Maroni.

    Let me clarify here: a TLH inspired movie would be perfect and is exactly want I want. A 100% faithfull TLH movie however would never work in continuity.
    - Basically a TLH inspired movie would be like BB was for Year One.
    - A TLH movie would be as accurate as Sin City was.

    The actors I like for the BB series have certain qualities that I like for the characters based on several comics I have read, or ideas I have for characters - My dream cast for a TLH movie is based on looks and the personalities of a character from only one source.

    I think Chris Noth would be a great Maroni - however I have no problem with Liotta either (he was my favorite before Noth). I like Noths presence and IMO he could nail the role.

    I loved Wilkonson as Falcone the way he was in BB - he would not of been my choice however for a TLH Falcone.

    I think Liotta looks a lot like TLH Maroni.

    Just remove the beard.


    As a side note, I've kind of been itching to this "Cast TLH Using Actors From Any Decade" thing. I don't know why, but I think that would be fun.

    Yea. He was nothing like Falcone in TLH. The Falcone in TLH was much more intimidating and just had a cool vibe going. Watching Batman Begins their version of Falcone just seemed to me like any other mob boss; nothing special. Although, I liked his little speech with Bruce about fear and all.

    But as Batman Begins shows, you need not worry about looks. Noth doesnt look a lot like Maroni - but I think he can nail the character. Liotta looks a lot like Maroni - thus he is in my TLH cast.
