Gonna be posting fan casts

Alright, I have a lot of ideas when it comes to Batman casting.
There are just so many diverse and interesting characters!
And there are in my opinion a limited amount of people able to portray these characters, not just because of how they look, but also because of their acting abilities.

Now take in mind that this is a fan cast, and I do not know every actor that exists so if you have better ideas, leave a comment!
Remember, these are only characters that are not yet announced.
That's why there is no Joker, or Harley Quinn, or Alfred. Etc.

I have only picked the characters which I would love to see on the big screen, or see again on the big screen but then accurate to the comics.
So let's just get into that list.

And don't mind my Photoshopping abilities, it was incredibly hard to get it right.
But these edits are merely to show you the idea behind it.

The Riddler / Edward Nygma

I literally can not think of anyone better than Michael C Hall.
He looks the part, he's shown us great acting skills and he looks smart on top of all. And under the right director I think Hall can make us forget Jim Carrey ever played him!

The Penguin / Oswald Cobblepot

The Penguin was a tricky one to find, because there are not that many actors that look the part. However, I came across someone who I have not seen in a very long time.

You may or may not know him but he defenitely looks like the Penguin.
I do have my doubts about his ability to act the correct way.
Therefore I think perhaps Brendon Gleeson could also play him, because he is defenitely a very good actor.

Catwoman / Selina Kyle

When I saw Charlize Theron while searching for an actress that could perhaps play Catwoman, I knew she was gonna be the one.

She looks like Selina Kyle and is an incredible actress.
She has proven that time after time.
And considering we are going for an older Batman I think she makes the perfect choice looking at her age.

Scarecrow / Dr. Crane

This is defenitely the worst Photoshop edit because I could not think of a better way to show who was hiding behind the mask.

Anyway, that is besides the point.
Kevin Bacon has the age, the acting skills, the look of Dr. Crane and above all just the ability to make someone scared only by looking at that person.
I was incredibly happy when I found him in my search for the perfect actor!

Commissioner James "Jim" Gordon

Pierce has never been on my list of favorite actors, but recently he is beginning to rise a little.
I know a lot of people want Bryan Cranston as Jim Gordon because as early version Walter White he looked a lot like him.
But I am leaning more to Brosnan. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Bryan Cranston, but I rather see him as a villain.
I have not yet decided who he could play, though.
Anyway, Pierce looks the part and we have already seen that he can kick ass!
So, who's with me on this?

Two-Face / Harvey Dent

Jake Gyllenhaal is one of my favorite actors at this moment.
He just has an incredible acting range, from nice guy to creep in 10 seconds.
Which is exactly who you want as Two-Face.
Someone who can pull it off.
I loved Aaron Eckhart, for sure, but I feel like Gyllenhaal can bring something to the character that not many other people can.

Mr. Freeze / Dr. Victor Fries

I do not take credit for this Photoshop edit, I only put in the face + goggles.
Whoever made this, great job.

After that incredibly cheesy portrayal by Arnold Schwarzenegger I have always looked forward to seeing Mr. Freeze done properly.
And I think Hugh Laurie can give us the Freeze we deserve!
He is a talented actor, with the right look.
And I don't think many would disagree.

Those were the picks!
Did you like them?
Do you have better ideas?

Then let me know in the comments!
