Adam Baldwin as Bane, of course...

Might not sound like the guy from Diablo this time though.

Written and Directed by Joss Whedon. Summer Glau would probably be Barbara Gordon than Catwoman, that role would go to Morena
Well, I was thinking Summer's dance background would help her in the action sequences, look at the fight scene in Serenity, where she reputedly did much of it herself. But, I can see Morena as Catwoman, and if Barbara Gordon is Batgirl rather than Oracle, it's win-win.

Re: Cast The Inevitable Batman Reboot

I could see where Summer would be Selina, but Babs I think would interest Joss a lot since she's the heroine and Summer in my mind would be perfect for Barbara. The only change I'd make to your suggestion is David Boreanaz over Nathan Fillion. I don't see Nathan as Batman at all. I'd go back to Buffy/Angel alumni for that role...but the rest of the Firefly/Serenity cast I'm all for

Re: Cast The Inevitable Batman Reboot

I sort of see your point. Nathan would be excellent as the public persona of Bruce Wayne, millionaire playboy, nice guy but not the sharpest tool in the box. But maybe not the bat himself.

Jewel Staite as Harley Quinn? Sean Maher as the Riddler (I'm reaching here)? Mark Sheppard as a younger Alfred? Or, if we're opening it up to other Whedon works, Anthony Head?

Maybe have Summer as Harley? She's done crazy before and her dancing could come in handy for Harley's playful movement.

I think this thread's gone in the crapper...

Re: Cast The Inevitable Batman Reboot

No, I can't see Nathan Fillion as Batman. He's way more Hal Jordan to me.

I've thought about this some more...

Jim Caviezel as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Terence Stamp as Alfred
Matt Bomer as Dick Grayson/Nightwing
Drew Roy as Jason Todd
Charlize Theron as Selina Kyle/Catwoman
Tom Selleck as Commissioner Gordon

Re: Cast The Inevitable Batman Reboot

Jewel would make a great Poison Ivy IMO especially after seeing her in "LA Complex".

For a live-action Batman Beyond, I'd want Clint Eastwood as Old Bruce, Niall Matter as Terry McGinnis, and Freema Agyeman as Max Gibson.

How about Alan Rickman as Ra's Al Ghul instead of Alfred?
This. Oh god this!
Which one? Or just all of them?
Eastwood - perfect! This would be an awesome performance for him
Matter - perfect - I can see him as Terry, he broods just enough
Agayeman - she's got the sci-fi cred it would work

Now get to Hollywood and be a casting agent!

Re: Cast The Inevitable Batman Reboot

Clint Eastwood was originally attached (or at the very least rumoured lol) to the "Batman Beyond" project when it was being developed. He was the only actor they had in place at the time while they wrote the loan draft of the script. Of course this fell through and I believe they then went with the "Batman Vs Superman" route...although I can't quite remember this now.

Inspired!

It just occurred to me, the Firefly cast, plus assorted Whedon alumni, might not work for a film. But if there was a new Batman TV series....

Also, Nathan could work as Batman, depending on the tone of the piece. A dark and gritty version....no chance. But something action packed and fun, clever and witty, not quite tongue in cheek, with just a hint of self awareness...he'd be ideal for the role.

I LOLed at this. Niall Matter is not a good actor. He ruined Eureka.

Re: Cast The Inevitable Batman Reboot

If you say so.

I disagree. So sue me.

Re: Cast The Inevitable Batman Reboot

No one immediately comes to mind for the reboot, but three requisites stand out:
1. He should be under 30.
2. He should have the acting chops to convincingly play the emotionally-scarred vigilante as well as the bored playboy.
3. He should be strong enough to carry his own films (as Batman) but wise enough as an actor to scale it back and be an effective part of an ensemble (Justice League).
