10 Older Actors Who Should Play Batman In the Man of Steel Sequel JIM CAVIEZEL Best known for: Person of Interest, The Count of Monte Cristo, Passion of the Christ, Frequency Upcoming films: Savannah, When the Game Stands Tall, Bliss! Age: 44 FRANK GRILLO Best known for: The Grey, Disconnect, End of Watch, Prison Break Upcoming films: Untitled James Wan Thriller, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Homefront Age: 48 JOSH BROLIN Best known for: No Country For Old Men, True Grit, W., Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps Upcoming films: Oldboy, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Inherent Vice, Crazy For the Storm, Everest Age: 45 JON HAMM Best known for: Mad Men, Bridesmaids, Friends With Kids Upcoming films: Million Dollar Arm, The Congress, Clear History Age: 42 RICHARD ARMITAGE Best known for: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Captain America: The First Avenger Upcoming films: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Hobbit: There and Back Again Age: 41 NEXT FIVE ZergNet Orr Hamm is the obvious and best choice Rock Conner JIM CAVIEZEL is my first choice, but Josh Brolin & John Hamm would do well also. SuperFanBoy12 I like him on person of interest especially the episode about “2 cats in a bag” but I want Scott Adkins to play Batman. TheDouche Caviezel is one I never thought of, but I can see that. And John Hamm too. sj_raquel Benedict Cumberbatch king I’m a fan of cumberbatch but he’s too odd looking for the role TheRoosh So was Keaton and Bale. http://www.disqus/panin200.com ob4 JIM CAVIEZEL, KARL URBAN and JOHN HAMM linda Caviezel would be amazing! Caviezel played Henry Cavill’s father in The Count of Monte Cristo which would add an extra layer of pathos to their relationship SuperFanBoy12 That might be interesting but I say Scott Adkins BlackMasamune Should have included Tom Cruise. AL no one wants to see a 4 foot tall batman Randy caviezel, Brolin, hamm and mount.. the rest meh! jim Karl Got damn Urban. that is all. THEREALGOKU Eric Bana would be cool John Locke Matthew Fox TheRoosh Not bad … if you ignore the punching of female bus drivers in his past. Mônica Vanzillotta John Hamm!! Ryan Please god, not Patrick Wilson. The comparisons to his portrayal as the Nite Owl II in Watchmen will never end. In order of preference for the actors mentioned above: Jon Hamm, Anson Mount, Jim Caveizel, Karl Urban, Eric Bana, Gerard Butler, Richard Armitage, and Frank Grillo. Grillo is last because he is the one above I know the least about, which may be a good thing if he’s interested in screen testing for Bats. I’m not including Patrick Wilson because he’s played a character too similar to Batman already. He’s a fine actor, but his prior role will likely rule him out. I don’t see Snyder going there. Jason Koskey Half these actors have terrible American accents. The other half don’t look the part. Hamm is the only one I can take seriously. lee john ham, has the eyes and jaw structure to pull off batman fedr No Keanu? JB Cerulli I hope thats a joke fedr it is earnest. hikeshi randalph jon hamm, god dammit! Japneesh Dhanjal jim Caviezel literally represents bruce wayne….he should be the one. MutinyofSense I think Mike Dopud could pull it off Esther Caviezel would be my choice. His eyes and lips are perfect for the mask. http://www.facebook.com/people/Brad-OLeary/712485497 Brad O’Leary Armitage, Urban or Wilson would all be cool. pablouk Jim Caviezel is by far the only choice for the new Batman. Or Richard Armitage. SuperFanBoy12 I was thinking Karl Urban until I saw Scott Adkins for Batman trending on line. I got some of his movies and he’s now my top choice. Don’t say he can’t act because that’s what people said about Cavill. Ryan I’m not so sure about Armitage. Look at that nose! His Batman cowl would practically become a beak in the front. Grillo would probably have the same problem as well. X1K Scott Adkins is the perfect choice. Has the build, the MMA training and actually looks like Bruce Wayne, minus the “Undisputed” beard. SuperFanBoy12 I completely agree Antonio Basara Josh Brolin???? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA fedr I know i’ll get hate for this, but, JOHNNY DEPP could be the best choice for Batman. People would bitch and cry but remember that Depp is actually a pretty great actor and he would pull it off better than anyone listed. I have not liked his last 8+ years of movies but depending on the tone of the movie (probably close to man of steel) he could absolutely kill it. Though I don’t think he would do it. JimBob Jim Caviezel is the one I would choose out of this bunch. Jon Hamm is wrong. Josh Brolin, no. I really don’t know the other two guys, tho. Ken Straws Jim Caviezel Has the Look the voice Then Intensity. Example,The Count of Monte Cristo The light heartedness to be Bruce Wayne. The Eye Have such Intensity. I can see him doing a voice that would’nt require a recola afterwards. Warner Brothers WAKE UP! Here’s your great actor for Batman. John Hamm Looks like the Comic its Incredible, He look just like the action figure, Mad Men Gives him the 1960″s Bruce Wayne Classical Look. I think He would do an excellent Job. Here’s a name nobody even mentioned in this category. Tom Jane. Would make a good batman also. Good Build Great voice. Just a thought. Jim Caviezel is still My Guy. mudywaters Josh Brolin is clearly the number one choice. Rufus William Offor KARL URBAN! Victor Orozco Jim Caviezel all but channels a Bruce Wayne like character on Person of Interest. Show creator Jonathan Nolan should get the word out to his brother Christopher that they have their next Batman. https://www.facebook.com/joseph.napolitano.503?ref=tn_tnmn Joseph Napolitano Urban Mohssin Mohssinn jim caviezel my choice the man is amazing in person of interest bobo Hamm is the only one I can take seriously in this list. Adkins would work build-wise, but he’s a poor actor.
