    Donal Logue has played a very ruthless character on Sons of Anarchy so I think he's a good choice for Bullock. I can see him as Bullock more than I can see him as Gordon in any case.

    Oh, I'm not questioning his ability to play the role. I'm just saying it's not something I personally would've expected given the limited experience I have with his work.

    Here's his Wikipedia page. He's actually played supporting roles in some pretty major movies, and guest starred on some big shows alongside the one he's starred and recurred in.

    An io9 writer's take on the pilot script isn't necessarily something one should put too much stock in. Plus it looks like it's not the final draft of the pilot script that the writer read.

    I read the article last week when it was originally posted, and I'm pretty sure the guy who wrote the article on IO9 said outright that he didn't know how legit what he read really was.

    Good casting for Selina. She has a striking look and a dance background, which should help lend the character the graceful movement she needs. She's a year older than the actor playing Bruce.

    Yeah, very good choice for Selina. Her eyes are downright catlike (my cat Tasha had the same kind of two-color irises). Although her face reminds me of Michelle Pfeiffer, whereas my tastes in Catwomen run more in a Newmar/Hathaway direction.

    She does look a lot like a young Michelle Pfeiffer.

    That probably had a LOT to do with her being cast. I wonder how many girls auditioned.

    If her Pfeifferesque looks were a factor, that suggests they're drawing on a range of influences, since we already know they were looking for a "young Michael Caine" type for Alfred.

    I think the actor playing young Bruce is a little like Christian Bale as a child too.

    It doesn't mean Heller specifically looked for someone with Pfeifferesque looks, though.

    God damn, I can already see the impending fanboy frustration... As good as this show may prove to be (and I have high hopes), it's highly unlikely that there's ever going to be that ultimate payoff we'll all secretly yearn for. I mean, it could go on for ten seasons, and were still never going to see Bruce become Batman. :lol:

    They've said the plan is for him to suit up as Batman in the series finale if the show runs the distance.
