I'm withholding judgement. Everybody freaked out about Keaton, Bale, and Affleck when they were announced and they did decent jobs. This has me the most concerned considering the filmography, but I'll give him a chance like I did the others.

Dude has to gain some muscle though...

If it's good the billion dollars they make will say yes.

If it's not good the 600-700 million they make will also say yes.
This...

Also, I'm on board with Kravitz with the role. At one point they were eyeing Logan Browning :hearts:, but I'm good with either.

Anyway, rumor on this at the moment is that it may be based (perhaps more "influenced by") on The Long Halloween, with Batman working to solve an over arching mystery and most of his rogue's gallery popping up in smaller/supporting roles along the way.

I love The Long Halloween, so I'm hoping this is true. At the very least I'm hyped about seeing Batman solving mysteries on the big screen. We've never really gotten a look at the "World's greatest detective" aspect in movies before.

I feel you. Granted, Nolan stole some of The Long Halloween as well, but rumors have it that this will be heavy considering there's a good bit of Batman's rogues gallery involved. As long as this fool doesn't make an appearance (I know he's not), I'm good.

This is starting to look like way too many characters
==========================

UPDATED: Andy Serkis is in talks to play Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s trustworthy butler, in Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” sources tell Variety, while Colin Farrell is being eyed to play the famous Batman villain the Penguin............

Nah, if it's inspired by The Long Halloween like people are saying the number of characters will make sense.

Man, I'm digging all the casting announcements. Bosslogic did a piece with Matthew McConaughy (sp?) as Two Face. I wonder if he's heard something?

Now I see there are stories of Matthew McConaughey will play Harvey Dent. Very interesting indeed.

Little bits and pieces, but some big names.

The only thing that really gets me is you've got Batman's rogues gallery...a collection of freaks, monsters, weirdos, etc. for the ages. And you're trying to bring in Andy Serkis, the character actor/mocap king who has given us some of memorable freaks, monsters, and weirdos...to play Alfred.

Don't get me wrong. Serkis is a legitimately talented actor and would do great as anything.

But...as Alfred? Did not see that coming.
