Thread: Superman & Batman Movie (2015)

  1. #16


    JGL isn't even one of Hollywood's choices. They are going for a Batman that is in his late 30's/early 40's. He is already established at this point as Bruce/Batman. They want an aging Batman from Frank Miller's 1986 "The Dark Knight Returns". Here are the considerations...


    Who will face off against Henry Cavill in the "Man of Steel" sequel, where Superman battles Batman?

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Zack Snyder is beginning to formulate a list of potential actors and is considering casting a Caped Crusader in his late 30s or early 40s.

    The sequel will reportedly not tell the character's origin story, but give fans an "established and rugged" Batman, similar to the character seen in Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" comic series from the '80s.

    So who is on the potential Batman shortlist?

    Josh Brolin, 46, is said to be the frontrunner according to two THR sources, but another studio source told the mag that the casting process has just begun.

    Ryan Gosling, 32, is also reportedly being eyed for superhero role.

    "True Blood's" Joe Manganiello, 36, who director Snyder liked as a possible Superman, is also a potential Batman. The actor's schedule for his HBO vampire show could reportedly pose a problem for filming.

    Other Batman contenders include: "The Hobbit's" Richard Armitage, "Pacific Rim's" Max Martini and "Watchmen" star Matthew Goode.

    VOTE: Best rumored Batman actor for 'Man of Steel' sequel?

    The Batman casting could reportedly be settled in the next few weeks. The studio is looking to shoot the film in 2014, with a release slated for 2015.

    Christian Bale Offered $50 Million To Continue As Batman? Scott Adkins Approached

    Let's add a pair of new rumors to the Batman reboot mix with mention - again - that Christian Bale was offered a heap of money to reprise as the Caped Crusader for the Justice League movie, in addition to a new name for the role with Scott Adkins. Scott Adkins, known for The Expendables 2, Zero Dark Thirty and The Bourne Ultimatum, is said to have been approached to play Batman. The Scott Adkins UK fan site ScottAdkinsfans states the actor may not only have been approached by Warner Bros, but also may have auditioned for the role of the new Batman. 10138 Regarding Christian Bale, a new gossip-style e-book, Beyond Batman: The Unauthorized True Story of Christian Bale and His Dark Knight Dilemma, has it the actor was offered $50 Million to reprise for the Justice League movie. It could be possible that Bale was offered to return following The Dark Knight Rises. The book goes on to mention in its description how Bale is compared to Robert Downey Jr. and such, with typecasting and going on to have a career following Batman. Bale previously stated he is not returning, which seemed a definite answer, and Warner Bros. also announced a new Batman would be cast. Our own sources tell us they are going for a younger Batman to play a new character. Here's a description of the e-book in case you are interested from Amazon: "Beyond Batman" is the unauthorized true story of Christian Bale and his real life Dark Knight dilemma. As the bat signal still glimmers with fervor above Bale's Hollywood marquee, this compelling, first-of-its-kind work recounts Christian Bale's inescapable experience as the Batman of our generation. With three of the most successful Batman films in Hollywood history under his belt, Christian Bale is now facing extraordinary pressure to become The Dark Knight once more in the forthcoming Justice League film. This compelling read exposes how sources close to Christian Bale have reportedly begun expressing their suspicions that Bale now views the Batman films in the same light that Robert Downey, Jr. views the Iron Man films. Although Downey has appeared as Tony Stark in four movies in less than a decade, he’s hardly typecast as Iron Man. Downey has balanced his action film escapades with other projects that have harnessed his talents and earned critical acclaim in the process. If Bale follows a similar formula, his box office glory days may not be behind him – a reality that other men who have donned the black cape weren’t so fortunate to experience. In the end, Christian Bale’s future success as a top Hollywood draw may need Batman every bit as much as the Batman franchise still needs Christian Bale.

    Default Ben affleck revealed as batman


    The Oscar®-winning star joins Henry Cavill in the first ever onscreen match-up of DC Comics’ most iconic characters.

    BURBANK, CA, August 22, 2013 – Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project—bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in “Man of Steel.” The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

    The studio has slated the film to open worldwide on July 17, 2015.

    Last month’s surprise announcement of the new movie featuring both Superman and Batman created a wave of excitement and immediately fueled discussion and debate—among fans as well as in the media—about who would put on the cape and cowl of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego.

    Snyder successfully re-imagined the origin of Clark Kent/Superman in the worldwide blockbuster “Man of Steel,” which has earned more than $650 million worldwide to date, and climbing. The director will now create an original vision of Batman and his world for the film that brings the two DC Comics icons together.

    Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

    In the announcement, Silverman stated, “We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.”

    Snyder also expressed his excitement about the casting of Affleck, noting, “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.”

    Kroll added, “We are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.’ remarkable legacy with the character of Batman. He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.”

    Affleck recently starred in the Academy Award®-winning Best Picture “Argo,” which he also directed and produced, earning acclaim and a BAFTA Award nomination for his performance in the film, as well as a number of directing honors. In 2010, he starred in and directed the hit crime thriller “The Town.” His recent acting work also includes “The Company Men,” “State of Play,” and “Hollywoodland,” for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor. Earlier in his career, Affleck starred in and co-wrote (with Matt Damon) “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay.

    The new Super Hero film is being scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Zack Snyder. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan and Wesley Coller serving as executive producers. Production is expected to begin in 2014.

    The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, and Batman characters created by Bob Kane, published by DC Entertainment.

    people acting like affleck didn't just make 2 movies that were BETTER than man of steel & the dark knight rises (the town & argo are both better than those films).

    and people whined & bitched about ledger as joker & downey as iron man too.

    im just glad they went with an older batman rather than making him a young 20 something again.

    This isn't a case about Bens director skills, this isn't what he was hired for so that's irrelevant. Ledger, although an odd choice at first, still had great acting chops before TDK. DAREDEVIL.....NUFF SAID
