Bryan Cranston would be the more interesting choice. Mark Strong has played stock villain in one movie after another for over a decade.

Orlando Bloom is not rugged or brawny enough, IMHO. And everyone associates him with an androgynous elf.

I think Bloom is an underrated actor despite being in six of the biggest grossing films of all time. His absence was definitely noted in the fourth POTC film. That being said he's not in my top ten for playing Batman but then again Michael Keaton wasn't either in '89. I'm surprised that Sam Worthington's name hasn't ever come up.

Well, now that I see what he looks like as a non-elf, and after reading up on his acting career, Orlando Bloom might be a good choice. He does have presence and a strong fan following - he would just need to beef up a little. Henry Cavill can lend him his secrets.

(I wonder if this means Matt Damon is Robin)

This all but confirms my suspicion that somehow, Kevin Smith is going to get a cameo in this film. Also, I guess the clock is ticking to see which lucky fan will be the first to present a Photoshop rendering of Affleck as Batman using footage from the Daredevil film.

I'm wary but intrigued. Affleck can pull off some great performances, the problem is that it only happens once in a blue moon.

I hope this isn't a sign that WB is trying to fill the entire cast with big name actors.

That didn't work with Green Lantern, and I doubt it'll work here either.
