WHO WOULD BE THE BEST CHOICE TO PLAY BATEMAN?
Pros: From Mad Men to Bat Man? Anyone who watches Mad Men knows that Don Draper is practically Bruce Wayne already. He’s smooth, he always knows what to say and he tends to get exactly what he wants in the end. His deep voice could be flexed ever so slightly to make a truly menacing Batman voice (hopefully better than Bale’s custom rasp) and he’s got tall, dark and handsome written all over his face. Everybody wanted him as Superman but he’s got a dark side to him that perfectly suits Bats.
Pros: Physicality is not a question with Wahlberg, if he isn’t buff enough already to play the part he can get into shape anytime he likes with the sports complex he calls a home. The man’s had an amazing physique for the past twenty years or so. We’ve seen him play tough, mysterious leads before and his turns in movies like The Departed, Shooter and Max Payne show that he understands both the action side and dramatic aspect as well. He also has very expressive eyebrows and a good angry stare. He is a credible blockbuster lead, just the times he has found himself in them (Planet of the Apes) it hasn’t worked out because of a bad production rather than anything he did.
Pros: At age 30, Gyllenhaal is still young enough to star in multiple films and return the character to where he was at with Batman Begins, if so called for. We’ve seen him as an action star in Prince of Persia and know he has the physicality necessary for the role and his appearances in Zodiac show he has the obsessive acting range to handle Batman. We’ve already gotten Heath Ledger from Brokeback Mountain, why not another star?
