orcus - 

Hamm is about as Bruce Wayne / Batman as it gets. A little older though, isn't he? Still, he'd be great.


I always thought Batman was suppose to be a bit older than the rest of the JL.

Might as well go for Ryan Gosling! He's got the John Hamm-esque vibe, but is younger and infinitely more marketable.

Scott Adkins

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0012078/

With a shave he even looks a bit like Christian Bale but actually has a martial arts background and can perform his own stunts. If you remember him from Undisputed II & III his acting is pretty good and he is used to being part of an ensemble (Expendables 2).


If I was casting JL Batman he'd be in my top 5. He can play a batman we have NEVER seen before. The most legit >badass< batman.

If DC does the movie properly, they have to go another direction with Batman. The other characters borderline don't matter, just the big 3, Batman in particular. The Avengers worked out the best formula for integrating regular/peak human combat with the CGI necessary for gods/meta-humans.

a Scott Adkins-Batman would be like Jeremy Rener's hawkeye but much more dynamic combat style and he can perform all of his own stunt scenes (good to promote). Using some wirework and the more 'unbelievable' camera techniques Batman could realistically be seen as someone that keeps up with the like of Superman, Wonderwoman, etc.

Nolan-verse shit isn't going to work in JL at ALL and no one is going to want to see more fight scenes with batman's hands on his head like he's about to do the sprinkler.

Nolan-Verse Batman is about being the everyman
JL Batman has always been about being exceptional


Check him out from Undisputed II, III!

oh and for what it's worth, yes I know they'll probably just make it one big CGI fuckfest.

I actually don't mind the JLA movie using the Nolan-verse Batman. But, just like I do when it happens in the comics, I think it's a mistake to have someone other than Wayne be Batman (excepting future and alternative timeline iterations, of course).

JGL better get working with a trainer, he looks nothing like Batman. Great actor, but you need a certain physical presence to play the role.

Hamm is the best suggestion so far. He looks more like Wayne than anyone that's played him in the movies to date.

Looks only go so far. I just don't see him as having that intensity to play Batman.

i suppose you could have batman without bruce wayne, but could you have the justice league without bruce? i mean, doesn't wayne money pay for most of the JL toys? having some dingdong in a batsuit making $35k a year is a significantly different proposition.

You could do it without ever seeing him as Bruce Wayne. But I think the plan is to tie in future Batman movies with the JL movie, so eventually you would have to have them do both.

I know this is going to catch some serious flak, but I think you could easily go against type and cast someone like Idris Elba or Eamon Walker as Batman.
