Around 5 years ago, actor Michael C. Hall voiced his interest in playing the Riddler in the sequel to The Dark Knight. Even though the Riddler didn't make an appearance in the third installment of the franchise, the green clad villain was still rumored to make an appearance. Could you imagine what Michael C. Hall would have been like in that role? By looking at his role in Gamer (2009) we can tell that he's not unfamiliar with the task of being the bad guy. His work in the Showtime hit Dexter also shows us that he can easily play the well-versed psycho that the Riddler happens to be. Even though some of these roles have already been filled, it's still nice to dream. But what other comic book roles could this astounding actor pull off? Let's take a look.

1. Captain Cold

Hall could easily pull of vengeful, which would be needed to play this enemy of the Flash. He also has the looks and the build for the part, making this a fitting role for the seasoned actor!

2. Batman

Michael has been in DC fan casts for quite awhile now. Even though his ability to pull off the Dark Knight is debatable, I'd have faith in him if he was ever cast in this role. Hall's got the chiseled features of the Batman, and could easily nail the mysterious vigilante. His voice is also low and intimidating, which is vital for someone who's going to play someone like the Bat.

3. Nemesis

Nemesis is practically Batman's opposite. Even though he too is a billionaire, he wears all white, and kills lots and lots of people. If only we knew of an actor who could perfectly portray a disturbed serial killer who can't have a night out without being covered in gore...

4. Daredevil

Michael C. Hall has been an under the radar fan favorite to play the man without fear (before Charlie Cox was cast). Personally, I think he'd do a wonderful job as Daredevil. He's about the same height, has the same hair color, nearly the same build, and undoubtedly has the looks.

5. Hush

Hush is a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne's, who bears a huge grudge. He's vengeful, full of rage and hatred, and has precise surgical skills. If that's not a role for Michael C. Hall, I don't know what is.

What do you folks think?
