    If Micahel Keeton can play Batman then JGL can. Get past all your little comicbook ideas and ralize the acting capability of JGL. People freaked out when they said that Bale was going to play Batman, people freaked! JGL did an outstanding job in the last Batman movie and he will do just fine in a JL movie as Batman!

    I think it would be a great idea to have JGL play a robin/nightwing/batman in the JL movie. Like the batman series and hopefully the superman movie, it would give the JL a different touch than the comics. In my opinion I think it is lazy and uncreative to remake the same things that have been done without going out on a limb trying something new and making it your own. I honestly thought the batman series would have been a flop but it has turned out to be my favorite incarnation of the caped crusader.

    It has to be Bruce Wayne / Batman. I think they're going to mess up if JGL takes the role as Batman. I always thought that he would be Nightwing or Robin. If they're going to reboot Batman, they better do it right by not getting someone from the Dark Knight series.

    Can someone explain what exactly Arnie Hammer has done that is convincing people he'd be a great Batman? I'm not against the idea I'm just wondering what exactly people are seeing in him?

  • Brocky | November 28, 2012 7:01 AM

    His name has been thrown around and championed since the movie was announced all those years ago and I don't particularly understand it either. He was also one of the names that kept getting thrown out there for Superman way back in 2010 before Cavill was cast, right after The Social Network came out.

    The only thing I ever thought he stood out in was a one episode stint of 'Veronica Mars' which doesn't say much because to me that show is so spectacular and amazing that everything about it stands out as top notch to me. He just happened to be there too.

    I think JGL would make an okay Batman, but JL should really have a Bruce Wayne Batman. Bring on Armie Hammer!

  • James O'Brien | November 27, 2012 1:35 PMReply

    I think this is an awful idea. If there's a Justice League it should have the Bruce Wayne Batman not John Blake. Reboot the entire thing or bring back Bale.

    Catwoman can't be the other person from the Nolan trilogy to appear in Justice League because the end of TDKR shows us she is retired from the game just like Bruce is done with the cowl. If JGL appears in Justice League as Batman or Nightwing or there's any other type of tie-in, I could see perhaps Cillian Murphy returning as Scarecrow. I think Oldman, Freeman and Caine are done. Another longshot would be a post-Arkham Carmine Falconi with Tom Wilkinson returning.

    Ohhhh wait, the person who suggested Schoenarts is definitely on to something here too...

  • DG | November 27, 2012 12:15 PMReply

    I think this rumor is probably fake but if it were true it'd up my excitement for JL about ten thousand percent. Really it would be a smart move on Warner's part connecting the Nolanverse to this, despite the fact that many fans might find it saCreligious, just to build some kind momentum or vested interst. So who's the other character that might 'suit up' again though? Really the only possibilities I can think of are Hathaway or Oldman but I feel like neither of them would w ant to do it with Nolan? Maybe Caine as Alfred cameo?

    what happened to Armie Hammer Batman?

  • MnMonMovies | November 27, 2012 11:07 AMReply

    Bruce Wayne not in the Justice League movie?! No! Thats like saying Bruce Banner wouldn't be playing The Hulk in The Avengers! Treason!! Let us know what you think : http://bit.ly/SqT5eP

    I think the JGL story is bullshit.

  • DHE | November 27, 2012 10:31 AMReply

    I hope this isn't true. It would kill the element of realism from Nolan's Batman. Just call Fassbender or Schoenaerts

  • ALEX | November 27, 2012 10:21 AMReply

    I actually think it's a good idea to have JGL return as Batman. Not only would it trigger a clear difference tonally and visually between him and Bales's Batman, but also it would solidify the connection between Justice League and Nolan's Batman universe. Besides by somehow connecting Justice League to the Nolan's films and Snyder's Man of Steel, which all position these superheroes in a serious and realistic world, the Justice League film will differentiate itself a lot from the light comic-booky tone of Marvel's The Avengers. Isn't that what we want? Something different?

  • rodie | November 27, 2012 9:41 AMReply

    I'm not sure why WB would need to have JGL as Batman...Would that REALLY boost box office? I doubt it. If anything it would just draw negative comparisons to Bale as Batman. JGL is great, and I liked his role in TDKR but he would not make as good of a Bats as Bale did for the entirety of a movie, even a Justice League one where he plays a supporting role. Just cast someone else as Bruce Wayne/Batman and let Nolan's series be its own trilogy.

  • David | November 27, 2012 9:38 AMReply

    Hilarious. Bruce Wayne IS Batman and JGL is not Batman.

  • David | November 27, 2012 9:35 AMReply

    Damn, Bane still frightens me! Terrorist psycho!

  • Neil | November 27, 2012 9:30 AMReply

    This is brilliant news, the JGL set-up at the end of Rises was too good an opportunity to pass up. The ending left no doubt in my mind he'd return as Batman, until everyone started denying it.

  • KT | November 27, 2012 9:27 AMReply

    He wouldn't even be a good Robin, let alone Batman.

    Not even Chris Nolan can stop the juggernaut of commerce.
