Earlier today we got the news that "Gotham" isn't going to be a boring cop drama, but instead, will be more similar to "Smallville". Fox chairman Kevin Reilly said this about the show at the Television Critics Association press tour:

”This is all of the classic Batman characters,” Reilly said during the panel. “It follows the arc of how they all became what they were. I’ve read the script it's really good. It’s going to be this operatic soap that has a slightly larger-than-life quality.”

You know what that means? Super villain origin stories! And there is nothing I love more than seeing things like Batman: The Long Halloween or Batman: The Killing Joke actually take the big step from graphic novel to the screen, even if it isn't the big one. I'm very excited to see character like The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, Penguin and Batman and where they came from. But the question I wanted to ask is, what is your preferred casting list for the characters listed above? Mine is:

  • Joker: Aaron Paul
  • The Riddler: Aaron Taylor-Johnson
  • Catwoman: Mary Elizabeth Taylor
  • Penguin: Mark Sheppard
  • Young Bruce Wayne: Logan Lerman
  • Bruce Wayne: Obviously Ben Affleck

But the biggest reason why I'm telling you all this, is I want to hear what everyone else thinks. So let me know in the comments below whether you agree with me, disagree, or have a completely different list on your own! Don't be afraid to think outside the box!
