New Line refused to pay what was owed to Jackson from the profits of LOTR trilogy, which is why he refused to direct the Hobbit movies at first.

I think Jim Caviezel would make a great Batman, especially after seeing him in Person of Interest. He's already got the voice down pat!

I agree. I have my fingers crossed and hope some Hollywood casting agent agrees!

I have a feeling the names circling around for the past 7 to 8 years will get second consideration.

People wanted Cavill for Superman Returns.


So far i've heard

Ian Somerhalder- Batman

Matthew Bomer- Another contender for Superman

Michael C Hall- Luthor

Jim Caviezel- Batman and Superman


Those are the few that keep popping up.

Didn't Ian Somerhalder already play Bruce Wayne...err...Adam Knight?

If Caviezel & Cavill end up being Batman & Superman then it should make re-watching of The Count of Monte Cristo interesting.

And it would lead to no end of confusion . . .

"Caviezel? Cavill? You mean they aren't the same person?"

I'm thinking it would be 80% stuntman with close ups for Caviezel when Batman talks

I heard Caviezel's kind of walking a bit stiff these days on Persons Of Interest. Something to do with past injuries.

Well, they did nail him to a cross in Passion of the Christ.

If Matt Bomer isn't cast as Batman it will be a grave injustice.
So if this did theoretically happen would that make him the first actor to have played both Superman and Batman?

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.

That's a better idea than one might think at first glance. He certainly has the American accent down and would make an excellent Bruce Wayne. Bamber played Mephistopheles on stage to outstanding reviews. He's capable of casting a darker persona than you might think. I was always impressed with him on nuBSG. Moore didn't write for his character nearly enough.

Orlando Bloom is all KINDS of wrong for the part. I still say Jensen Ackles would make a very effective Batman. He's a fine actor.
