Who should they get?
Adam Driver continues to be my top pick. The look, that stature, that voice… I think he’d be great.
I wouldn't wanna see Scarecrow till at least a threequel, but maybe Kodi Smit-McPhee, who Reeves has worked with a couple times before, for a mostly silent and traumatized Jonathan.
Get someone with a cool voice and have Scarecrow be a costume only baddie. Never see Jonathan Crane.
It’s not going to be any worse than the Titans Scarecrow at least.
Bear in mind that Crane is a doctor with a PhD and well renowned in his field of study. He should be a bit older.
I'm 110% on the "Ralph Ineson for Hugo Strange" train, but Ineson would also make a killer Scarecrow.
Stephen Merchant would be cool casting, he's a long lanky guy, the kind of build you'd expect for crane. they'd just have to find a way with the camera to not make him completely tower over everyone because the guy is like 6'7
Im going to throw Geoffrey Arend’s name into the pot.
Robert Englund seems like a good choice. And here me out, I know this sounds crazy, but I would also cast my vote for Norman Reedus.
I can see it lol
My top pick would probably be Ineson
I like the idea of a really tall, Scarecrow, like Injustice except he is still human and not a monster.
Nolan barely scratched the surface but Im not even really wanting Scarecrow in this series. But I felt lackluster when I heard about Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman until I saw the interpretations.
Something like this woul look really nice if Reeves decided to use him

I’m partial to the TNBA design. Some dude on Reddit did a pretty sick cosplay based on that design…
If we get Scarecrow in the Reeves franchise, then I definitely want to see a variation of this classic scene from Knightfall.
A more practical version of the Crooked Man silhouette would be amazing.
I'm also a big fan of TNBA Scarecrow design. A take on that, with Adam Driver behind it could be great. I think what's tricky about this role is you have cast Creepy for Scarecrow but you also have to cast someone who can be astute and for Crane.
While I do like TNBA Scarecrow, he just looks more like a zombie in actuality. Not sure if I would go that route. It gives me the impression of trying to make a character scarier than what it needs to be or already is and turns out to be a fail.
Also, I doubt if Adam Driver would want to get into a comic book franchise and I don’t really want him anywhere near this trilogy either.
What would be some left field choices?
Ok, when I really think about it, this is what I look for in a actor for Scarecrow. Tall, around 40, has played in a horror franchise, nerdy and someone that is well known, but not a huge actor.
Jared Padalecki is a pretty good choice for me. He’s 6’4, known for playing in Supernatural, played the lead role in Friday the 13th, nerdy, but also knows how to be a villain. I would love to see what he could do.
I really do want Stephen Merchant, I feel he is believable as a professor, he's tall and Lanky, all around a likable guy.
But Scarecrow is a versatile character so I would be open to whoever is cast
lmao Jared Padalecki
I know. It’s so far left field that it may as well be in the nosebleeds. Scarecrow doesn’t need to have a big name actor though. Just as long as he can look and act the part. I want to be shocked by his casting.
Michael Emerson is a great choice for Scarecrow I think. He could do it in his sleep. Loved him on Lost.
