    so far I have:
    . Joel Edgerton as batman
    . Eddie Redmayne or Dave Franco as the riddler
    . Robert Redford (brown Hair) as commissioner Gordon
    . Michael Keaton (with a small mustache and black hair) as Alfred Pennyworth
    . Jack Black as the penguin (that would be amazing)
    . and if the jokers in it, James Franco

    now, lets hear your guys's choices!

    Let’s see if I can do better than the idiots who ignored Pattinson’s black aura from Twilight and made him the new Batman:

    John Cena - Bruce Wayne/Batman
    Pierce Brosnan - Alfred
    Michael Douglas - Commissioner Gordon
    Robert Downey Jr - Joker
    Tommy Lee Jones (Via CGI) - Two-Face
    Megan Fox - Catwoman
    Steve Carrell - Riddler
    AJ Styles - Firefly
    Jack Black - Mad Hatter

    So far I’m really satisfied with The Batman’s (2021) casting. Paul Dano is the Riddler, come on you can’t get better than that for a Riddler in his 30’s.
    But I’ll totally do casting for a Batman Beyond movie

    Terry : Dylan O’Brien
    Bruce : Micheal Keaton
    Commissioner Barbara Gordon : Julianne Moore
    Maxine : Kiersey Clemons
    Dana : not many choices, I’ll probably go with someone new
    Derek Powers : Patrick Wilson

    I would cast the Batman movie as if it was a one room stage play, with Pattinson playing all the parts from Batman to Alfred to Joker to Catwoman to Robin to Gordon, just to watch prfctcellrulez's head explode, Scanners-style.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAaaaaa...gasp...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA...choke...sputter...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA...oh sweet buddha... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA...HAHAHA...HAHA...HA...hahaha...where's the tylenol?

    Now here are some great choices.

    I also like Autoboticon's casting. Only thing I'd change would be not the cast, but the setting. I'd set it in the late 1920's, or early 1930's. During prohibition. I'd costume Batman like his original form. I'd follow up everything else that way too.

    Maybe you're just not familiar with the concept of what acting is.

    Cena has screen presence and he can recite dialogue. Okay, check and check. Good start. But he does not have the acting chops to sell being the world's greatest detective. He couldn't even sell being a New Jersey Police Department junior detective. The upper range of what he'd be capable playing would maybe be NJPD beat cop. Nor could Cena sell being educated and born rich. He's a working class meathead and that's all he can portray. He could maybe be Guy Gardner, if you really want to see him in a DC movie. He could probably pull that off. But have mercy on the guy. Don't ask him to embarrass himself playing someone so far outside his range. What you're suggesting is like asking Tor Johnson to play Albert Einstein. Come on now.

    I would bet millions of dollars that he wouldn’t. You’re saying that pickle flavored ice cream is better than vanilla ice cream.

    You want good casting for the role and not just choosing celebs that you think are cool. Look at Autoboticon’s list

    More like a rock is better food than eating vanilla ice cream.

    Thanks guys.

    I really like that idea, the thought was definitely a more 20s-30s aesthethic for Gotham, even if it was present.

    The idea is more or less a few years into after Bruce as begun being Batman, enough time for a rogues gallery, but still fresh with how he handles things. More detective then tech.
