Hey guys. I'm pretty new to the site and I'm writing this as a young comic fan. I personally am for the idea of a Batman TV show (not on CW) so I'll have lots of villains on here. So, if you disagree or have any other ideas for the cast, please comment. I'd love to hear your ideas.
Character: Bruce Wayne/Batman
Actor: Karl Urban
I tried really hard to stay away from Ben Afleck on this one. I'm actually really into Afleck's work and can't wait to see him as Batman but I'm trying to do something completely original with this. Karl Urban is currently working on the TV show Almost Human. You may know him from the J.J. Abrams Star Trek films and Dredd. So, this is my Bruce Wayne. He's also in good enough shape for Batman.
Character: Dick Grayson/Nightwing
Actor: Alex Pettyfer
No Picture Available
Pettyfer has been out making a name for himself in the past few years. After showing off his body in Magic Mike, playing the hero in I Am Number Four, and working on romance in the Endless Love remake, I think he has what it takes to pull off the role. This is a revision, actually. Logan Lerman was my first pick but I looked it over and it just didn't seem right. So, give me some feedback.
Character: The Joker
Actor: Tom Felton
Tom Felton is tricky. He's only about 9 years old than Pettyfer but god can he be creepy when he needs to. If you need proof, watch his performance in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The Joker is a great character for the guy and I just think that he's perfect. I think the guy can hide the age difference between he and Pettyfer using his acting skills. Ledger's legacy will earn him some crap from Nolan loyalists but this could be really good.
Character: Edward Nigma/The Riddler
Actor: David Tennant
You probably know David Tennant from his run on Doctor Who but, if you don't, he was great at being the character who is one step ahead. I am not the first to want Tennant to take on the role. There are many online petitions for him to go onto screen in the green suit. I am a huge fan and would just love to see it happen.
Character: Jason Todd
Actor: Spencer List
This is the last Robin I'm going to cast right now because of the time that would pass and mess with the actors' ages. So, Spencer List has been in some very dark and/or emotional films like Bringing Up Bobby, The Orphan Killer, and Bereavement. This works for a role like Jason Todd. He is much more of a loose cannon than Grayson and I would love to see how he would handle the role.
Character: Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow
Actor: Josh Hartnett
I'm not super familiar with Josh Hartnett's work but I think that he has the right look. Crane has a lot of creepy monologues when he's not wearing the mask and, to pull them off, you need to look creepy to. He's been in intense movies before like Black Hawk Down, Lucky Number Sleven, and 30 Days of Night. I'm confident that he would have an understanding of the role.
Character: Selina Kyle/Catwoman
Actress: Lara Pulver
I've just finished watching her on Sherlock in which she plays a woman who is the only one who can even come close to outsmarting the main character. Sound familiar? I act and I hate type casting but she is just so good at it. She is British but she's an actress and probably has gotten pretty good at hiding it.
