We have plenty of "Would ________ play a good _________?" threads, so I thought we might as well make one huge thread.

Anyways, these are my picks for cast members.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bane: Dwayne Johnson

Catwoman: Jessica Alba

http://www.aolcdn.com/red_galleries/jessica-alba-400a0524.jpg

Riddler: Johnny Depp

So, who do you think will be in B3? Make sure to list an actor/actress as well!

Lol Rock would be a good Bane...he's playing I read somewhere Black Adam in the Shazam/Captain Marvel Movie, and he's a perfect fit, I say Riddler - Depp, Angelina Jolie as Catwoman and Ron Pearlman as Clayface...

David Tennant said that he would love to portray the Riddler, and he's a fantastic actor. He was a terrific Dr. Who, and he's excellent as portraying twisted, delusional characters. He was Bartimus Crouch Jr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

... Alba?? Eesh, haven't seen anything she's acted well in. As far as decent actresses, Jolie, or Johansen, maybe... I don't know. Not many are coming to mind as this moment, which is a shame...

I like the other choices. I'll have to think on this a bit for characters and actors that can play them...

What I'd love, despite rumors to the contrary even by Nolan, is that Dent is still alive, kept hidden in Arkham, and the whole continuation of Batman on the run, all of that wonderful story set-up, played out as only Nolan has shown he can do. I don't really want to see a new love interest for Bruce, but maybe a helpful strong female lead (unless it's Selina, of course). It would be interesting if, in the process of her cat-burgling, she sees Batman and has to help him escape the hard arm of the law after him, kind of like how I read it in Year One recently. Although, if they make Sleina Kyle into a dom lesbian, I will have to veto the movie:p Nothing against lesbians, but that wasn't Selina Kyle... Anyway... In this one arc throughout the film, the heavy weight on Batman woul be that a criminal has helped him, one he's falling for, but his moral code eats at him. Meanwhile, Two face getting out of Arkham, maybe helped by Bane, or found by Bane, or some other entity (maybe Penguin -- as a mafia boss that's taken over after Joker's rampage, or if they want to replace Joker and continue it that way), and now you have a monster that Batman has kind of let be created reeking havoc on Gotham with his new ally (s), a Cat-burglar that he's falling in love with -- talk about eating away at the code he's trying to live by. Oh, and the cops still after him, with lethal force, for the wrong reasons. I don't know. Maybe it's too many characters. It's so hard to speculate, really. I am sure, if Nolan does it, though, he'll do it right.

Edit: I honestly have to say, David Tennant there looks PERFECT as The Riddler. Depp has come real competition there :) Uh, sorry Why So Serious?, Megan Fox is a far worse actress than Alba! Please, taker her away... lol And I don't get why people think she's all that hot. She isn't...

Yeah, Lesnar would play a good Venom. Bane... not so much.

As for Black Adam, the movie was cancelled early this year. :(

I respectfully disagree.

There are hundreds of thousands of actors in this world. Before Heath came along, it was said that Jack Nicholson's portrayal could not be bested. It's entirely possible that someone could do a much more masterful job at portraying the Joker than Heath. If you think that no actor on this earth could match the performance of one man, then I think you're approaching a level of extreme fanboyism.

If you think that no actor on this earth could match the performance of one man, then I think you're approaching a level of extreme fanboyism.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that Heath Ledger can be topped with a "much more masterful job," but a different take on the Joker is totally plausible; as you say, Jack Nicholson was thought to have done the best portrayal and he still is by many. However, Heath Ledger (in my opinion) coincides well with Nolan's perspective on Batman's world and is the ideal antithesis to him.

I do see what you're saying though about that whole "there can be no better" approach from the more opinionated fan base.

Not sure about you, but I'm seeing a mediocre actress who has never done a convincing role. Being somewhat physically attractive does not automatically make someone a suitable Catwoman, and she has never impressed me in any of her roles. Catwoman's character also has depth, a sort of playfulness, and intellect. If Alba's performance in the Fantastic Four is any indication, she would fail at capturing the depth of the character.

She's an actress, she can change. This is sorta like the Dwayne Johnson - Bane thing.

Dwayne has been in mediocre movies, but he has a lot of potential. So I am willing to give him a chance at Bane.

Jessica has been in mediocre movies, but she has a lot of potential. So I am willing to give her a chance at Catwoman, why can't you? You weren't against The Rock being Bane.

Sure, Dwayne has some experience that makes him suitable for the role, but that doesn't mean he can play Bane.

Eh, Jessica Alba is one of the sexiest chicks on the planet (IMO) but I'm not seeing cat woman in her; she just isn't an assertive type personality, nor is she the proper leading lady for that role - it just doesn't match. It seems as though people are pushing the envelope without knowing exactly what's inside.

This is just my opinion, but I think that Angelina Jolie is right up Cat Woman's alley. She's been in many action movies, she's played strong leading lady roles and she's got that mischievous swagger about her - a trait I think is a must for Cat Woman.

Then again, a better approach could be a lesser known figure because it adds to the notion that she's a mysterious loner and it makes sense for a masked character to not be well known.

The thing is, she's an actress. She can play a strong leading lady. She has great potential, and Nolan could be the one to show us all that.

I should also point out that I think the whole "guy who looks like a penguin so that's how he got his name" seems a bit too convenient.
About a year ago I had the idea that perhaps a more interesting interpretation of the character would be where Oswald Cobblepot was an arms manufacturer (similar to Tony Stark) who had government contracts and was a direct competitor to Wayne Tech. The name of this company would be "Penguin Armory"; the threat would come in as he would be a supplier for local and international criminal and terrorist organizations.
I have no qualms with P-S Hoffman in the role, though I'm sure there may be more fitting actors out there.

This is actually how I pictured it as well. I actually don't think Hoffman looks like the Penguin all that much other than being portly. So I always thought the nickname would come from his arms company. Something like a code among the underworld. To keep a low profile, he'd be referred to as The Penguin instead of by Oswald.

I tend to agree. He's a fine actor, don't get me wrong. But I just find him to be... I guess just not right for the part. I can't put my finger on it. I think a lot of folks are just thinking "Ok, who's a respectable actor who Chris Nolan might be on board with and who happens to be somewhat overweight?"
I think it is somewhat important to depict Cobblepot as being overweight to suggest a struggle with gluttony and greed... I mean, why else would a rich man need more money other than out of pure greed?
Who knows maybe, as you mentioned, DrCLos, "Penguin" could be the underground title and the public name of the company could be something similar like "Arctic Arms" or something like that. He, of course, should probably run the Iceberg Lounge too. ;)

Oh man. Well, to run a big company and love nothing but yourself and be comforted by money, you'd need a guy that could portray that fat-cat exec personality. Someone older than Bruce Wayne, for sure. Here's me spit-balling a few names.

Brian Cox
http://www.hbo.com/deadwood/img/castandcrew/actors/briancox.jpg

Brendan Gleeson
http://www.londonnet.co.uk/files/images/cinema/interviews/thetigerstail_interview2.jpg

or my personal favorite
Ray Winstone
http://videodetective.com/photos/918/038588_21.jpghttp://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/celeb/top_100/ray_winstone.jpg

Penguin's gotten a bad rap for a lot of years when I think he's got the potential to be something pretty threatening. No need for silly umbrellas (though, hidden weapons could be part of his company's product.) Somebody like Ray Winstone gives me the feeling that he could either just assume cut your jaw out or buy you a martini.
It's about personality for sure. Not just looks.

And that, for me, translates directly to Catwoman. Yeah, there's talk of Angelina Jolie. But I don't think Chris Nolan is interested in obvious choices.

Now, I've always liked Kate Beckinsale, but she's older than Christian Bale, I think. I guess a "cougar" playing Catwoman would be funny, but I dunno if that's necessary.
Megan Fox is hot, but she'd need plenty of acting classes before she filled Michelle Pfeiffer's shoes.

Odette Yustman would be my pick. She's young, a fine actress (better than Fox) and she's done a film with David Goyer and Gary Oldman recently. I could really get on board with her. :o

I like Brian Cox. All your choices are good ideas though. And I completely agree about the hidden weapons thing. I imagined it that way myself. I would imagine the umbrella has to make an appearance but wouldn't be a focus or it would look silly.
I actually think Kate Beckinsale could be an awesome choice. She is definitely sexy. I don't care if she is a little older.

Well, y'know, in The Long Halloween, Selina Kyle was the illegitimate daughter of Boss Falcone. It's no secret that Nolan and Goyer were heavily influenced by the book, so I would think that Yusman would be the perfect age and perfect look. Camera loves her, but she's got a "darkness" to her that I think goes beyond superficial sexiness into something that's deeper and interesting. I would say the same about Jude Law, though I won't say that he's "sexy." Obviously, a good-looking guy, but he's got a darkness in his eyes... almost like Michael Keaton had and was one of the determining factors for picking him as Batman.

Jesus! This thread just ballooned in a few short hours!! Well... Ok, forgive me for addressing everyone at once then :p


Patrick Stewart for Mr.Freeze ftw!

My god. You are correct, sir! The now ONLY one I can think of that can play him :D



Not sure about you, but I'm seeing a mediocre actress who has never done a convincing role. Being somewhat physically attractive does not automatically make someone a suitable Catwoman, and she has never impressed me in any of her roles. Catwoman's character also has depth, a sort of playfulness, and intellect. If Alba's performance in the Fantastic Four is any indication, she would fail at capturing the depth of the character.

Exactly.




She's an actress, she can change. This is sorta like the Dwayne Johnson - Bane thing.

Dwayne has been in mediocre movies, but he has a lot of potential. So I am willing to give him a chance at Bane.

Jessica has been in mediocre movies, but she has a lot of potential. So I am willing to give her a chance at Catwoman, why can't you? You weren't against The Rock being Bane.

Sure, Dwayne has some experience that makes him suitable for the role, but that doesn't mean he can play Bane.

Get what I mean?

Nope. What she's acted with has shown she's a mediocre actress. Whereas Dwayne Johnson – The Rock – has shown he can outdo the mediocrity of his parts. He's actually a very good actor, I think.




mad hatter and he seems pretty tall.

Uh... No. he isn't. You can get by with him played by any size, really.




How about Fitty?



Yeah, with Dr. Dre as Dr. Hugo Strange and Eminem as Firefly.

Glad I reread that as a joke:p




Michelle Rodriguez as Renee Montoya

That, I can see, however, I think Ava Mendoza would be a better choice.




Michael Madsen as Harvey Bullock


Now that's a pretty damn good choice :thumb:




Timothy Spall can look creepy enough to make a cameo as the Mad Hatter.

I love the casting threads, what can I say.

As far as Patrick Stewart goes, I'm afraid I just don't share the enthusiasm of some of my Bat-brethren. He made a pretty great Professor X, and I think that should be the extent of his foray into the comic book film genre.

No, I would be enticed by someone less "obvious" who might dare to simply shave his head rather than go with it because he's already missing hair and has an authoritative British accent.

A tall guy. A smart guy. A guy that we KNOW can be intimidating and authoritative with just a few choice words. While I like him even better for The Riddler, I would put Hugo Weaving in the Freeze suit. The guy has the chops for solid acting AND solid action and he's very cerebral -- my main reason for considering him as Nygma.

I don't find Patrick Stewart to be someone who straddles the line between morally sound and strategically insane. And to suggest that a credited theatre actor should form a prerequisite for a character like Mr. Freeze really doesn't fulfill the role in my mind. If that were the case, what would keep Nathan Lane from being a suggestion? Patrick Stewart is bald.. but he's always going to be Captain of the starship Enterprise. Hey, it's unfair, but he's just not a villain to me.

Don't get me wrong. I wanted Montoya and Bullock! But maybe more as scenery and less as supporting roles. They just aren't a necessity for a perfect Batman movie. But I wouldn't argue against them if Nolan felt he wanted to add them in. :D

I'd like the third movie to be the redemption tale, the one where he wins back the hearts of the people and the GCPD. I'm going to try and keep this realistic as possible, to remain in tune with Nolan's films.
Rather than listing who I'd like to see playing a Batman character, I'm going to list which characters I believe could fit into the Nolan-verse and who I think would be a good casting pick for them.
I think the third film needs to be a story where there are a lot of other characters (villains) who appeal to the city as charismatic, enticing individuals, while Batman is feared and hated, and slowly through out the movie that situation is turned on it's ear.
With that in my mind, my cast, and their role in the film.

Hugo Strange - Ben Kingsley (Love that idea, think he's perfect for the part!)
- Dr. Hugo Strange is the new leading psychiatric doctor at Arkham Asylum, overseeing the incarceration of Gotham's strange new breed of psychopath like Jonathan Crane and Patient J. He is intrigued by these strange, costumed individuals, but the person he most wishes to examine is the Batman. He starts out as a very likable, kind, but unsettling intelligent, head-doctor; as the movie progresses he becomes so obsessed with analyzing the Batman that he becomes the very thing he's studying, a mad man.

Selina Kyle - Marion Cotillard, Angelina Jolie, or Amy Adams ( I'd have to see each one of them Audition before making my decision on who would get the part. )
-Selina Kyle is the new media darling in Gotham, she's a wealthy, intelligent, seductive philanthropist with a passion for animal rights charitys and foundations. Till now she was a complete unknown, but she has recently been spotted out on the town with Bruce Wayne and this has rocketed her up the Gotham Popularity charts as people speculate on why an intelligent woman like Selina is hanging out with a notorious playboy like Bruce Wayne.
In contrast, Batman has recently been seen around town interacting with a beautiful woman, dressed just as outlandishly as he is; in skin tight black leather with a repelling harness, a tool belt, leg pouches and numerous infiltration tools on her person. What sets her apart from the average expert thief is her cat-themed hood and lenses which begin drawing instant comparison to the Batman's, leading the papers to name her the Catwoman and speculate on whether she is Batman's partner in crime.
She spends the film trying to get this speculation to become a reality, tempting him to the dark side while he struggles to maintain his morale high ground even while the city below him curses his name.

Det. Renee Montoya - Salma Hayek
- One of the new cops hired under commissioner Jim Gordon. She and her partner, Det. Harvey Bullock (Ron Perlman) are two of the few officers Gordon trusts inside the GCPD. Throughout the movie, due to their time spent with Gordon, they come to believe Batman really is one of the good guys and they assist him and Gordon any way they can.

The Riddler - Hugo Weaving (I've long thought he'd be a great Riddler, glad I'm not the only one!)
- Edward Nigma, world reknowned chess grand master, puzzle inventer, puzzle solver, and crime buster. He's a famous private investigator who has assisted police and even the FBI on numerous occasions. His mental intellect is said to be one of the highest in the world. The papers call him the Riddler, for his famous capability with solving puzzles and riddles.
In the film he comes to Gotham to offer the GCPD his assistance in tracking down and discovering the true identity of the Batman. The film reveals that Eddie loves the spotlight, he is smart and he wants to make sure everyone realizes it; he's not in this to help Gotham City capture their masked freaks, he's in it for his own personal glory. As the films moves forward and Eddie continues to struggle to find Batman's true identity he becomes obsessed with it. Strange is obsessed with Batman's mind, and Nigma is obsessed with the face behind the mask.

The Penguin - Phillip Seymour Hoffman
- Oswald Cobblepot has recently opened up a arctic themed nightspot in Gotham, a high-class night club that all the big names from nation wide come to to see and be seen. It is frequented by the likes of Donald Trump, Bruce Wayne, Lex Luthor, and Selina Kyle.
Around the same time as Cobblepots arrival in the city the city's thugs and mobsters begin to get their hands on some powerful new hardware, military class weaponry not easily accessible to them before now. Batman soon makes a connection between the new gun smuggling ring and the arrival of Oswald in the city. He knows it's Oswald, but he spends a great deal of the movie trying to find the proof.
Oswald's charm, his tendency to wear tuxedos, and the arctic theme of his club lead the papers to give him the nickname of 'The Peguin.'

I loved Murphy as Crane, and I think Tennant would be a fine Riddler, I just don't want to set myself up for disappointment so I try to avoid thinking about it.
Tennant has already said he wishes to return to stage acting, that's why he's leaving Dr. Who; so I don't wanna get my hopes up to see him in any movies.
Murphy was a great 'Crow but I was honestly disappointed with the way he was used in the first movie and I don't think I really want to see Nolan use him any further.

What makes you say that? Nolan's gone out of his way to avoid super powers in his characters, they're all 'real world' versions so if Ivy's in a film of his she certainly won't be controlling plants, she'll probably be like a botanist/toxicologist who becomes an eco-terrorist.

Javier Bardem would be good as Cameron van Cleer aka Killer Moth. But not wearing that garish outfit from the comics. Instead he'd be a fellow billionaire philanthropist who befriends Bruce Wayne.

In his spare time, Cameron likes to kill people because he is insane. Cameron uses his large pockets to begin developing gadgets to torture and kill his victims. He pins a dead moth on his victims as a calling card, which leads the police to refer to him as Killer Moth.

I also think Scarlett Johansson could make a graet Poison Ivy. She is already playing a sexy redhead as Black Widow for Iron Man 2.

Scarlett could work, but I think she's a little to sweet looking for it. I could see her as Harley before I could see her as Ivy. Ivy's usually an older and slightly more intimidatingly beautiful woman.

I think that Isla Fisher could be good as Poison Ivy.

Javier Bardem would be good as Cameron van Cleer aka Killer Moth. But not wearing that garish outfit from the comics. Instead he'd be a fellow billionaire philanthropist who befriends Bruce Wayne.

In his spare time, Cameron likes to kill people because he is insane. Cameron uses his large pockets to begin developing gadgets to torture and kill his victims. He pins a dead moth on his victims as a calling card, which leads the police to refer to him as Killer Moth.

maybe. it could work. but id prefer a cameo of the police taking killer moth to arkhem. he could hav his famous stripe pantts. or stripe tattos.

I also think she could be Barbara Gordon.

Why?
i just don't see her character played respectfully. even if treated as ecco terrorist. it will fall to cliches, sort of like thurman did.

Y'know? I'd much rather see Bardem as Bane or even Mr. Freeze. Using pro wrestlers for the guy just didn't work the first time around.

I like the Isla Fischer idea... then again she might be better as Harley.:nut:

I'm not going back to quote everyone, but there are some really good choices that have sprung up. Kate Beckinsale as Catwoman = absolute yes :thumb: She's probably the best, or close to, actresses going and she's continually delivered in the Underworld movies. And Christina Hendricks there for Ivy is not bad. Haven't seen her work, but she looks the part. Why wouldn't she work? What's wrong with her?! She's beautiful. She's got ... HUGE ... tracks of land! :p

I wish someoen here had seen her in something so they could back me up on why I think she's perfect for the part beyond just being gorgeous. :p

You know if Christopher Nolan directs the thirs film it'll be in the same year as The Dark knight or a year later and Barbara is still a kid that's like 8yrs old as we have seen.

I'm no longer doing this as my ideal Batman 3. It's just fun to cast the various Batman characters. I think Scarlett could be a good Barbara Gordon. That is all.

Daniel Day-Lewis would be an awesome Black Mask, anyone agree?

Daniel Day-Lewis would probably be a good anything, and a great most things ;)

"I ... drink your milkshake! I drink it up!"

Edit: Christopher Eccleston = a great Doctor Who, and a really good seething power-mongering Commander of a post-apocalyptic England in 28 Days Later :) With good material, he can do great things.

John Malkovich as Hugo Strange.
David Tennant as The Riddler.
David Hyde Pierce as The Clock King (I highly doubt Clock King would be in the movie, but still, in one picture of him it looks like he's trying to be the Clock King).

I have bunches more but I can't remember all of them right now... I'll have to sift through the dozens of other threads with casting ideas. >.<

I'm on the Depp bandwagon, he's easily my favorite actor and I think he would make an amazing Riddler.

Philip Seymour Hoffman could definitely pull off Penguin.

thats wht i think Phillip Seymour Hoffman could pull off the Penguin...
and Johnny Depp could play the Riddler

Poison Ivy: Eva Mendes
Harley Quinn: ???
Catwoman: Never Ever - Michelle Phiffer the only Catwoman
Penguin: Ricky Gervais
Riddler: Ricky Gervais, Eddie or Steve Carell - I can imagine Batman getting stumped by his riddles and Gervais insulting him
