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

IIRC, Miller auditioned for Superman when Brett Ratner was involved and that led to him playing the lead in Prison Break, which Ratner exec-produced. But I don't really see him as Batman. Maybe Dominic Purcell, his PB, co-star, when younger.

Whoever plays Batman in this film needs to look like he could hold his own with Henry Cavill. Yes, obviously Batman can never match Supes for physical strength but if you have a small, scrawny Batman standing beside Cavill's imposing hunk, the disparity is going to be so glaring.

So you're saying the D J Qualls rumor is false?

What do you guys think of Tyler Hoechlin from Teen Wolf as Batman? The thought crossed my mind while I was watching Monday's episode earlier today.
I wasn't familiar with him, but yeah he could really work as Batman.

That one pic makes him look like Joey Tribbiani.

So I just finished watching Dredd with my wife and now I'm thinking Karl Urban would make a pretty damn good Batman.

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

I think Karl Urban could do it - he could do a decent Bruce Wayne also - can do that more upbeat "playboy" Bruce, but also a more series - modern comics era Bruce too. One that is still physically imposing enough to not be taken lightly, but not so much so that people wonder why he's so in shape.

Plus he's got a good growly voice that you can actually understand.

The problem of course is that he has to build an American accent again from first principles, we have no idea what his Bruce Wayne is going to sound like.

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

^^ Well, one could get around that with just saying he's been travelling the world for about fifteen years during his youth training to become Batman. That, of course, would open the whole origin can of worms again.

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

Urban works for me. He was also good as a smart, focused, dangerous, special agent in RED. (Check out his big fight scene with Bruce Willis.)

And his American accent, too.

He has that mean and menacing look down pretty well.

That wasn't an American accent... That was DeForest Kelly.

Again, check out his accent in RED where he plays an American CIA agent. Worked for me.
