Mark Strong or Bryan Cranston to play Lex Luthor?

Caviezel looks more like the Ted Grant/Wildcat type than Bruce Wayne/Batman. So if they ever do a Wildcat film he's the guy!

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.

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.
Cavill was McG's Superman.

Just like Matt Bomer was Brett Ratner's Superman.

Cavill was also up for Twilight and Casino Royale.

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!
Caviezel might be the longest shot considering he's on a full-season TV show that requires 8-9 months of shooting. The ones on cable TV (Bomer, Hamm, etc.) would all depend on where their TV shooting schedule lines up.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I haven't seen Bomer in much but the guy definitely has the right look to play Bruce Wayne. If he's a good actor who cares if he's gay? That would be like getting all worked up because he's a vegan and I like eating meat. It has absolutely no bearing on how he will perform the part.

How much of the media actually cares that a gay actor is playing nuSpock in the new Trek movies? I don't see anything.

I didn't even know he was gay; that's how big a deal it is.

I could care less if he is gay. For me my choices to play Batman are between Bomer and Caveizel (I think I butchered the spelling).

My important criteria is how they look and act. Thier sexuality is none of my business.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I agree Bomer would be great, and he is frankly my personal favorite.

As usual, I find this board's enlightened viewpoint refreshing. Bomer's sexual orientation indeed should not and does not actually matter, but Bad Bishop makes a good point; some people are going to care, and some of them might be studio execs.

Good point.

I'm not sure this is much of an issue anymore.

Weird thing to inject into the conversation - do you keep detailed notes on which young hot actors are gay?

For record keeping purposes of course.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I'm not sure Matt Bomer is such a great choice, simply because he looks so similar to Cavill. They're practically the same guy!

I think they should cast someone as Batman who's not the exact same type as the guy who's playing Superman.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Wow, rather uncanny in those photos.

Still, the traditional notion of a hero looks a certain way. Woody Allen never played Batman. And Bruce Wayne's look is well-established.
