Some actors were born to play the good guy. Some were cut out to play characters with noble hearts, ones who are honest, with selfless intentions and a strong desire to rid the world of evil. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is not one of those actors.

The 50-year-old actor has been wreaking havoc as #Negan in the latest season of #TheWalkingDead and represents a whole new evil when the characters thought they had seen it all. The actor relishes slipping into the shoes of demented psychopath and he plays it oh so well.

Check out the trailer for episode 3, Season 7 below:

After witnessing Negan's antics on #TWD, many #Batman fans are calling out for Morgan to reprise his role as Thomas Wayne from Batman v Superman and play the Flashpoint Dark Knight. If anyone has the demented charm to play this twisted version of Batman, it's Jeffrey Dean Morgan. We're going to discuss the possibility of Morgan taking on the role and which character is more evil.

Who Is The Flashpoint Batman?

In Geoff John's graphic novel "Flashpoint," the story of Batman is reimagined. In a parallel universe, a mugger kills Bruce and leaves Thomas and Martha Wayne grieving for their and son and swearing bloody vengeance. This bitter, hardened version of Batman shows no mercy and is relentlessly violent. Sound like someone you know?

This ominous version of Batman is consumed by anger and a hunger for violence. His quest is to help #TheFlash recreate the machine that gave him the power of speed in order to travel back in time and save Bruce. The lost soul is living proof that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

Could Jeffrey Dean Morgan Play Both Villains?

Morgan has already played Thomas Wayne in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman and, when he was asked the Walker Stalker Con (or the gathering of The Walking Dead fans) if he'd want to play the dark, brutal version of Batman, he licked his lips at the prospect:

"I would love to be the dark Batman. That's the darkest Batman there is. God knows I embrace the darkness."

There are no plans for Morgan to slip on the Batsuit just yet. The next incarnation of the #DarkKnight that will grace our screens will be Ben Affleck's The Batman in 2018, which will pit the caped crusader against the merciless mercenary, #Deathstroke (played by Joe Manganiello).

Who Is More Evil?

Both characters believe in their own deluded quest for revenge and both will stop at nothing to satisfy their thirst for violence. Negan seems to win out just for the pleasure he takes in brutality and his unpredictable nature. Even Morgan agreed when asked to compare the two:

"Flashpoint Batman would be like doing a comedy compared to being Negan."
