With people losing their minds these last few weeks over the announced Batman vs. Superman movie, the real question isn’t how the movie will do, but rather who is going to be Batman. Man of Steel star Henry Cavill is set to return, but former Batman Christian Bale has decided on a more permanent “eight year break” leaving the cowl open to a new dark knight. Let fly the Hollywood rumor mill!

Last week the L.A. Times posted a popularity contest of stars, each of who have the potential to be the next Batman. The list included actors like Jensen Ackles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It appears, though, a young squirt isn’t quite what Warner Bros. and DC are looking for. Sources say the script, which is in way early development, will be inspired from Frank Miller’s 1980s ground-breaking mini-series The Dark Knight Returns. The Batman featured is older and more rugged. A battle hardened hero.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed some top names that are being thrown around to play the tough old bats.  Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Joe Manganiello, Richard Armitage, Max Martini and Matthew Goode are the front-runners.

Alright, Brolin… now that’s a good pick! Regardless of who’s names are surfacing, we’re still in the early stages of development. The script is still being written. There’s no way the casting process has even remotely started. So, take all of this as hearsay. Theoretical casting stories to get your nerd gears moving.

Would do you think would be a good fit to replace Bale as the new Batman? Let’s hear what you think in the comment section below.

    Jensen Ackles is not young and I think he would be a much better pick then Ben Affleck.
