If Matt Bomer isn't cast as Batman it will be a grave injustice.
Consider the studio's point of view. There are a lot of candidates to play Batman who won't be pestered by incessant questions about being gay. Bomer is not one of those candidates.

And no, life isn't fair.
Matt Bomer may or may not be suitable for the role based on his merits as an actor. I fail to see, however, that being gay has any bearing on the matter whatsoever. It is 2013, after all, not 1953.
Exactly. Jodie Foster and Neil Patrick Harris and Ian McKellen aren't exactly scrambling for parts. In fact, if word got out that an actor was not hired because of sexual orientation then the film could be seriously damaged.
