This Is The List For The New Batman Already

August 5th, 2013 // 100 Comments

So forget Tyler Hoechlin. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is going for a grizzled, older Batman to take on Henry Cavill‘s Superman, and the list is already getting out of control. So here’s everyone already being considered plus some from Lainey Gossip, Batman On Film and my own hopes and dreams. Although, before you get too excited, io9 reports Frank Miller is officially consulting on the film now, so chances are Batman will be Ron Paul punching hookers for looking Middle Eastern-ish. And being women.

  1. Brolin first with Caviezel as the second choice. Fuck no to Duhamel and especially Goslin.

    I agree, Mark Valley should have been Captain America, still should be, Chris Evans just sucks ass as Captain America and is about as believable as a badass as well Ryan Goslin, which is, not at all.

    I wish Batman would get a case of white nose fungus and die already.

    • Agreed.He´s just a weirdo in a stupid costume with a nick-nack belt as an accessory.I don´t even understand why he´s called batman..he´s basically just a rich nerd who goes over the top with neighbourhood watch.

    He’d make a better Joker (silently prays to hear ‘have you ever danced with the devil by the pale moonlight?’)

  6. Jack Napier

    Karl Urban would be excellent. The rest of you go home and get your fucking shine boxes!

    This guy played a Navy Seal who goes on a psychotic rampage after a car accident in Criminal Minds. He pulled it off.

    Yes.

    I was actually going to suggest this, I thought he was awesome in Chronicles of Riddick, one of the most underrated sci-fi movies in recent memory.

    • Jack Napier

      Commissioner Gordon is not the law. I’m the law… and Joker….. Judgment time!

    • He is a great actor, but the reality is he won’t get the part of Batman because he is not, well, white enough.

      i would hardly call Chronicles of Riddik underrated. It made a ton of money, get sshown on TV at least every few weeks or so, and was good enough and popular enough to get a high dollar sequel which is about to come out.

      • Deacon Jones

        They lost their shirt on the movie, it only grossed something like a third of what they spent on it.

        But I agree, it does see some good air time on cable.

    • Cock Dr

      This is the only possibility worth exploring.
      Get Dr Hawking a cape and a nippled breastplate ASAP.

    Double Jonny Lee Miller

    • Jonny Lee Miller has become one of my favorite actors, but I can’t see him as Batman. Perhaps as Alfred or Alfred’s replacement since the chilblains took him. Or something. Maybe it was a bad bottle of beer.

    Winner.

  38. EricLR

    Wes Bentley and Ryan Gosling as “grizzled and old”?? Compared to what, kindergarteners?

  39. Pat C.

    I’m not concerned with who plays Batman, but Frank Miller? He was awesome in the 80′s, but in more recent years I think his mind went off the deep end – e.g. Dark Knight Strikes Again.

  40. There are some choices on here that are obviously the brainstorming of the same kind of studio execs that opened up their buttocks and dumped out Batman and Robin on us. Cavaziel would be an inspired choice though, or Mark Valley. Jon Hamm could be pretty awesome too.

    Just have Batman jump into the Lazarus Pits so we don’t have to see “old, grizzled, hopped on pain killers, affected from being punched too many times in the head” Batman.

    He was on a show called “Human Target” That fucking show was so fucking badass. I have no idea why Fox cancelled it.

    Same goes for Dollhouse and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Fuck Fox.

    I would be 100% okay with this. I’ve been a fan of his since Lord of the Rings and he’s never disappointed me. It’s about time he got the lead in something, he deserves it. And now with this idea in my head, I’ll be highly disappointed if the go with someone else.
