After Warner Bros. sent fanboys into raptures of geektastic pleasure by announcing The World's Finest would go head-to-head in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, landing the gig of the Caped Crusader has become one of most coveted roles in the business. A whole heap of different guys have thrown their hats into the Bat-shaped ring, with the latest actor to express an interest in the role being Supernatural star . He was at Comic-Con recently rocking a Batman T-shirt and E! caught up with Ackles and asked him whether he would be interested in donning the famous cowl for Batman vs. Superman:
Any guy in his right mind would die to play Batman. It would be a dream come true. I won't hold my breath.
Ackles has experience working under the DC banner having provided the voice of Red Hood in the animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood. He's also got a decent chin on him although he perhaps lacks the authority needed for a truly convincing Bruce Wayne.
That's only my opinion though. What do you think? Would Ackles make a good Bruce Wayne/Batman?
