    So Robert Pattinson is Batman, Zoe Kravitz is Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright is Commissioner Gordan. Those are the confirmed castings.

    Jonah Hill was in the running to play The Riddler but he stepped back and now Paul Dano is cast.

    There was a rumor that Seth Rogen was in talks to play the Penguin but I don't know if that's going anywhere.

    I love Kravitz and Jeffrey Wright being cast. Both are great choices. I don't like the Paul Dano casting. I may change my mind after seeing it, but as of right now, I don't see it. I don't see the Robert Pattinson casting either but we will see. I am really glad Jonah Hill isn't playing the Riddler.

    paul Dano is a way better casting then Jonah hill. I really dislike Jonah hill in everything expect when he gets raped by the devil. He isn’t funny and tries way to hard.

    I’ll give Pattinson a chance, some of his roles show I think he can do it.

    Zoe should do just fine, no way she is as bad as Halle so it will be ok.

    Cant say anything bad about wright, the guy is awesome.

    the Seth Rogan thing Is odd and I don’t know how I feel about it if it were to happen.

    I have faith in the director to make the right call.

    With the exception of Jeffrey Wright, I feel like this is millennial Batman.

    Paul Dano is an incredible actor, Jonah Hill.... Not so much.

    I like Paul Dano just fine. I just don’t see him as the Riddler.

    Seems like a pretty perfect fit to me, he even has the look.

    I was wrong about Ledger as the Joker so we will see.

    I do know that casting directors see these guys in action doing the part before it gets announced and they get it right a lot of the time.

    The guy can play crazy great imo. You ever see taking lives with Angelina Jolie, he has a role in the flash backs. Also wished he would get larger roles.

    Batman is pretty whiney in general. I mean I guess I would be a little whiney too if I got shot in the parents.

    I think he will do just fine and couldn't possibly be worse than a majority of the previous castings.

    That's why I said this feels like millennial Batman. It feels like the cast was compiled by a teenage Youtube watcher with the exception of Jeffrey Wright. But like I said before, there are people that get paid to watch people audition and do screen tests so they know more than me and I was way off on Ledger so Ill wait and see. Gonna see it regardless.

    At least they stayed true to the fictional character and didn’t cast a black actor in the leading role.

    Dano's a solid piece of casting.

    Just glad to hear Leto's beta-male Hot Topic bullshit is gone from the DCU. There was literally nowhere to go for DC movie casting but up after that pussy being canned.

    I think there are plenty of great Batman stories to show in the cinema. I just hope we don't keep doing a lot of origin movies.

    People know who Batman is and what happened to him as a child, let's move on.

    Robert Pattinson is 33, not a teen which imo not a millennial.

    you do realize Christian bale was younger when he was cast as Batman. Zoe was the same age as Anne Hathaway, ledger wasn’t even 30 yet.

    stop bitching.

    yes we get it he was in a teenage vampire love story. Have you ever watched anything with him besides that.

    they need a young enough Batman to continue to make movies for 10 15 years.
