    Depends on where and when in Batman's career they aiming for. But anyone over 40 for a Batman that hasn't met Robin yet doesn't seem right.

    I want to see an already established Batman, before any of the "colorful" villains show up. Years of just busting criminals, trying to take down the mob, similar to that portion of Batman Begins. Use a more natural, realistic, believable villain.

    In THAT setup, I really like Anson Mount. I think he would be perfect for the role, personally.

    Mount is about as perfect as you can get for Batman. He's pure badass. He's the same age as Bale. A worthy replacement.

    For a fully established Batman he would be great, not doubt.

    Batman would have to be fully established. There's no point going back and redoing his origins again. "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" got that perfect. It can't be topped.

    The villains should still have their origins. Otherwise Batman will already have faced the dilemma's and knows how to beat them easily. Which would be boring for us.

    Yay for older, established Batman--Big no for Robin.

    I really want to see Long Halloween and Dark Victory adapted. But since the Mob is done and the freaks are out. TLH seems like it would just rehash Batman Begins. So a Dark Victory adaption where an Older 16/17 Robin is introduced would be very welcome by me. Just have Penguin take two-Face's role. And instead of bringing all those "Freaks", just have Penguin hire Black Mask. Keep The Carmine's and Keep Sofia as the Hangman.

    Batman: Dark Victory
    Batman - Richard Armitage
    Alfred - Bill Nighy
    Gordon - Joel Edgerton
    Sofia Carmine - Gretchen Mol
    the Penguine - Paul Giamatti
    Dick Grayson - Asa Butterfield
    Black Mask - Jeffery Dean Morgan
    Alberto Carmine - Joaquin Phoenix
    Tony Zucco - Stephen Dorff
    Catwoman - Eva Green

    I couldn't quote it because it was from the last thread, but Zionite, why did you cast Cyclops as Batman?

    I still like the idea of a modified Batman Year Two story which BMOTP is based on.

    Batman has been operating in Gotham for a couple of years while taking on the criminal empire run by the mysterious Black Mask. However once the Reaper appears and begins to target mobsters and cops, Detective Yin reluctantly works with Batman to stop this new killer stalking the streets. Her partner Harvey Bullock who sees Batman as a menace , grows weary as his partner is drawn deeper and deeper into Batman's world putting her own life at risk. As the stakes are raised, Batman finds that he needs a way into the mob world in order to stop Black Mask and the Reaper which ultimately results in consulting a criminal Joe Chill, the man who he believes murdered his parents.



    Batman/ Bruce Wayne: Sam Witwer
    Reaper : Michael Fassbender
    Black Mask: Daniel Craig
    Alfred Pennyworth: Geoffrey Rush
    Dr. Leslie Tompkins: Helen Mirren
    Joe Chill : Robert Carlyle
    Detective Ellen Yin : Lucy Liu
    Detective Harvey Bullock: Kevin Chapman

    I got to be totally honest. Do we NEED a Batman reboot? I mean, it's only been a few months since the Dark Knight rises release? Give Superman his time in the spotlight, wait at least 3 or 5 years, and THEN do a reboot.

    Short, fat Edward Furlong could work as The Penguin. The right director can pull the little acting talent he has out in the open.
