    Don't know if this is really Transformers news... in fact I know it's not, but sometimes I see some of the guys followup on actors from the movie. I've been following up on the Justice League movie and, Josh Duhamel is trying for a role on the movie, which IGN speculates might be Batman. Again, not TF related, and please move this if it belongs elsewhere.

    As much as I like Bale as the Dark Knight, I could see this. He needs to brood a lot more, but I think he could fit the bill.

    Hmm....I could see him being an interesting Batman, though I personally would prefer Bale play him :D .

    I've heard that he's reading for Flash instead, which makes a lot more sense.

    I'm all for keeping Bale as far from the Justice League movie as possible. A flying guy in blue tights would be completely out of place in Nolan's Batman world, and to bring Nolan's Batman into the Justice League world does just as much damage to the story, IMO.

    Comic readers are used to different "versions" of their favorite superheroes on the shelves at once...it's time the movie going public got used to it, too.

    Yeah, that's a good compromise.

    Besides, much as I love the idea of Bale having a definitive run w/ Bats, I can't see him sticking with the franchise for a dozen films 007-style. So I'd rather he focus on getting me a few great Dark Knight films, while they use a different representation of the character for JLU.

    And that being said, I'm not holding my breath for this film to be watchable. I feel like Hollywood might be biting off a little more than it can chew.

    I could see him has Flash or Hal Jordan (even though GL is gonna be Stewart), but has Batman I dunno.

    Duhamel needs to stay as far away from Batman as possible.

    I agree, Nolan's Batman feels "real" like it could really happen in our world, the Justice League needs it's own alternate universe, with an alternate Batman.

    yeah this makes the most sense Bale in Dark Night movies and Duhamel in Justice League ones. it could work, Duhamel seems like he'd be a great Batman in a less realistic comic world. they did the same with Bond when Connery returned for Never Say Never.

    I could see it.

    Though in a perfect world Routh would be Superman and Bale would be Batman.
    However, I am down with different versions of the same character as long as those versions fit the "vision".

    Is David Ogden Stiers the Martian Manhunter?

    PS -The Cobra = Oprah is awesomeness! :lolol
