I might be in the minority here but I think he'd probably be pretty good in the role. Personally, I think he'd be best if it was batman year one but I think he could pull it off.

Its a very odd choice but i only seen him in Ghost rider and hunger games lol.

i guess i'll have to see him in the batsuit and being muscles up then im sure all will be good mostly
Crazay  +   605d ago
I think he's got the ability to pull it off just fine. In my opinion he'd be much better off cast as Batman Year One but if they want to take this is a slightly different direction from the older highly experienced Batman, then he'll fit in well.

he did play BlackHeart in Ghost Rider, so he has some comic book experience already

But he was a horrible Blackheart...

He may not have been true to his comic self but that's not the actor's fault. He did a fine job with what he was given.
cell989  +   605d ago
I don't think it was his fault, it was the directors vision that killed the character

he pretty much looks like clark kent/superman more than batman, terrible choice.

I never even knew who the guy was but after seeing him I have to agree

Better than Ryan Gosling..
ironfist92  +   605d ago
Ryan would make a better Barry Allen

this is kind of reminiscent of the late 90's cartoon bruce wayne because this guy looks just like the actor playing superman, and in the 90's batman and superman cartoons bruce and clark looked like the same character as well. im indifferent to who plays batman at this point though so cool.

We could use a new villain "Dr. Octagon" played by Mos Def. Trailer playes Blue Flowers in the background.

Too bad I can't give +1bub for Dr. Octagon and another +1 for Steelers.

Matt Bomer would be a great Bruce Wayne/Batman in my opinion

I think its a bad idea to put any actor new to a role like this in a movie that is shared spotlight. I think he would adapt to the role better if they did a batman movie first then moved him into the superman/batman film. if he doesnt get it right in this one then its going to hurt things when he does a strictly batman movie. let him develop into the character with a batman film then go into the superman film once he is batman

I'm still sticking with either Josh Brolin or Joe Manganiello.
colonel179  +   605d ago
Joe Manganiello is huge. There is no way he would play Batman in Snyder universe. It might not be easy to guess who Batman will be, but just look closely at who was cast as Superman, to give you an idea of who will Batman be.

This Batman is not going to be older, as in more than 35 years old. Also, the complexion is not going to be as big as the like of Joe Manganiello. I actually think that Wes Bentley would fit, since he look like Superman. I didn't know who he was, but just looking at pictures, he really does fit.

Anyway, I repeat myself when I say that they are going to choose someone that we will not have guessed, and a lot of people will be upset until they release the movie. That's how it's always been.

Very good choice. Hope the producers would agree.

Saw him in American Beauty and think he's got that.. you can call it " bent " factor.
wishingW3L  +   605d ago
he's 34 but looks like a kid. I was expecting Batman to look older and wiser.

naa bro, he might not be the greatest actor but Look him up on google images, he has that perfect bruce wayne look chiseled jaw line
StarWarsFan  +   605d ago
He has a very dark tone about him. I think he would work. He's certainly the best idea I've heard up to now.

He got the looks and charisma of Bruce Wayne. But, I don't know if he'll be good as Batman.
KwietStorm  +   605d ago
Don't even know who that is.
