In terms of suggestions that I've seen here or elsewhere, I like Sam Witwer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Gosling, and JGL.
I can go with Witwer, there's an edge to him that fits Bruce Wayne. Gyllenhaal might do quite well as Green Lantern (if they don't opt for a black actor as John Stewart instead). And I've long been crossing my fingers to see Gosling as the Flash.

Yeah, but do you see them making an Aquaman any time this century?
A solo movie is a longshot, but I could see Aquaman being part of a Justice League movie.
Honestly, I think Aquaman has a better shot at making the JLA moving than Martian Manhunter!

And, heck, Aquaman almost got his own show on the CW a few years back . . . .
AND the new comic series is one of the best books in the DC relaunch.

And, of course, Witwer has already fought Superman--when he played Doomsday on SMALLVILLE!

A suggestion I've seen in other forums is Karl Urban, which I kinda like. He's proven with Dredd that he can do the stern, badass thing really well.
You know, I like that idea. I just watched RED the other night, and he was a convincingly tough and smart and relentless in that one, too. And even managed to make his character somewhat sympathetic despite being on the wrong side . . . .

It's ironic. Some people are saying Jon Hamm is too old but he's only a year older than Urban. I could live with Urban but I prefer Hamm.

I think not for Levitt. I don't see a Batman movie ever getting made where Batman isn't Bruce Wayne. Most people wouldn't even be aware that there has been a Batman who isn't Bruce Wayne.

Re: Cast the new Batman

^ You missed what I said; I'd like to see JGL play Bruce Wayne, as it'd be a nice 'alternative' to them doing what I'd like to see them do but know that they're not going to do: bring back Nolan's universe with JGL's John Blake as Batman.

I'm sure he'd do a good job, he's a good actor. But even as an alternative I think it's highly unlikely, seems like it would create unnecessary confusion considering how recent TDKR is.

Re: Cast the new Batman

JGL as Bruce Wayne Batman would cause a lot of confusion. I suppose that's not a good reason against the idea and I'm sure once the ten thousand "he's Bruce Wayne, this isn't a continuation of TDKR" everyone will be fine with it when they see the movie. Still, while I wouldn't have been opposed to the idea before TDKR, after it it's not really something I'm enthusiastic about.

Of the names listed there, I'd say the most interesting choice is Richard Armitage, based on his effectively brooding and conflicted Sir Guy of Gisbourne on the 2006 Robin Hood series.

Re: Cast the new Batman

^Yes, he has an old-fashioned movie star look to him, a bit like Errol Flynn (who I think would've made a great Batman in the 1940s). It'd be controversial if Clark and Bruce are both played by Brits though!

I think they'd be foolish to cast someone like Brolin, who will look very old compared to Cavill. Plus if they want to spin this incarnation into his own series of movies, they really need to go younger to give him any shelf-life. If its to be a one-off appearance for this Batman, I suppose Brolin would be interesting.

Re: Cast the new Batman

I like Josh Brolin. Though Gangster Squad wasn't a great film I thought he did a solid job in it. He was like a human wrecking ball. I could easily see him wrecking shop in Gotham the same way.

Armitage looks to be a good choice. Another choice would be Jim Caviezel and at 44 has the looks and age to play the role. I think I remember reading he was up for consideration in the Nolan movies.

So now they're saying they want someone in his forties?

Okay. Problem solved. Hamm or Caviezel.
