    Christopher Nolan (Memento) is going to be directing the new Batman movie scheduled to come out in 2005.

    On CNN today, they reported that Christian Bale (American Psycho, Shaft, Empire of the Sun), 29, will portray Bruce Wayne/Batman

    "What I see in Christian is the ultimate embodiment of Bruce Wayne. He has exactly the balance of darkness and light that we were looking for," Nolan said in a statement.

    I like Christian Bale but I don't really see him as Bruce Wayne. Who knows? He might be pretty good.

    I would have liked to see Clooney get another shot with a more serious movie.

    I don't see a problem with this guy though. I'll give him a chance.

    The ruin of Batman wasn't Clooney's fault, it was Schumacher.

    But isn't Bruce Wayne suppose to be one of the most sexiest men alive...

    I think they could have pulled a unknown soap actor and then give him Batman.

    Bale I guess is ok, but I just keep seeing him as the guy from Shaft.

    I totally agree and that's the main reason why I had hoped they would give Clooney another shot. I thought he made a great Batman. I don't hate Batman And Robin as much as some people do but it could have been a lot better. It was just a bit too campy. As far as Clooney in the suit I thought he looked and Acted the part very well. Visually Clooney is EXACTLY how I would picture Bruce Wayne looking.

    I guess Bale will be good enough. This is supposed to be a younger Batman. BUT, I always picture the Bats as a rugged man's man - not a pretty boy. Oh well, we'll see.

    I had always thought George Clooney is one of the sexiest men alive and he is a great actor. Just look at From Dusk Til Dawn and O Brother Where Art Thow. I thought he did the best that the script allowed him.

    They better bulk him up like they did Thomas Jane for the Punisher.

    Batman 5 should be the movie version of Hush. Then all of the Batman fans would be drooling at the mouth seeing Killer Croc, Scarecrow, Joker, Riddler, Ras Al Ghul, Two-Face, Catwoman. It would just be amazing.

    Bale is an excellent choice for Bruce Wayne, but he'll have to convince me that he'll be a good Batman.

    I always thought Val Kilmer did great as BOTH Wayne & Batman. :cool: Keaton was a good Wayne, but couldn't pull off the Batman role. And Clooney could barely pull off walking upright & talking at the same time... :mad:

    Looking forward to the new version... :D

    With maybe the exception of Alicia Silverstone as Bat Girl I have thought they have done a great job casting in all the bat Man Movies. Each Batman has done a great job with the roll. Chris O'Donnel (sp?) did a good job as Dick and Robin, More so in Batman Forever but that's just because of a better script I think.

    I guess my biggest beef with Bat Girl may not have been Alicia but it was the fact she wasn't Barb Gordon.

    Wanted to let everyone know that Michael Caine (Nigel Powers)is going to play Alfred.

    Viggo Mortensen is rumored to play the villian.

    28 Days Later star Cillian Murphy (Jim)has landed the role as one of Batman's villians.

    My guess is the Scarecrow...but that's me wishing
