    Might just be me, but Batman and Superman just don’t make a good combo…they’re so different from each other

    Sophia Says:

    If it’s just gonna be for a fight scene, wouldn’t it be easer and better to ask Christian Bale to do just that one scene? I mean, Nolan is producing so it should be easy. I think Bale would do it…

    Hes too young for playing Bruce Wayne/Batman… Bruce Wayne is older than Clark and Henry Cavill is older than this guy…so no!

    LOL some people are annoying..they want a Batman/Superman movie and when is going to be real they say they are “opposite” and things like that…is not weird…exist comics about both is not strange thing!
    The only thing is Im not agreed to this actor playing Batman..he is way young for it!

    As much as I know people aren’t going to be happy with this if he gets the role – don’t forget, he’s just screen testing for it – I’d be happy for him if he got it. Obviously this could be a role that kickstarts great things. He’s also definitely attractive; Tyler is charismatic like Bruce Wayne. Regardless, I know there will be backlash just for the mention of someone other than Bale (which, tbh, I’m personally happy it’s not him), but it’s going to be interesting to see who they pick for the new version in the long run.

    I would LOVVVVVE to see Tyler as a superhero, he is so damn hot! I’d love to see him up on the big screen all hot and sexy and gorgeous. Hell I wouldn’t even be watching Teen Wolf if he wasn’t on there, Tyler HOECHLIN is the only reason I do watch it!

    @if u ask me:

    Um, they are in the same universe. It’s called DC comics. Try and read The Dark Knight Returns or…the Batman: Hush comic series. Try watching the three Superman/Batman animated films. You might change your mind :)
    These two are the world’s finest!

    It’s not gonna be JUST for a fight scene. Batman will be one of the characters that is potentially against Superman in this movie. In the end, they will become friends or just mutual acquaintances. Plus, Christopher Nolan’s Batman series is OVER. Zack Snyder and Nolan both said that the Nolan Batman universe does not exist in the Man of steel universe. So its time to say goodbye to Bale and hand over the torch.

    Calamity Says:

    Christian Bale on NOT playing Batman anymore: “We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy.”

    “It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another,” he said. “So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”

    hope he’ll get that role, he was great as a kid in Sam Mendes movie and then stuck in teen shows so this may be his breakthrough role.

    True Says:

    Good for him. He looks older than his age. Maybe they want a younger Batman.

    How about NO?

    Eric Bana or Richard Armitage could be awesome in Batman!!

    Gyllenhaal or James Scott (the soap actor) for Batman

    Have you seen Teen Wolf’s ratings? He already has his break through role.

    Amy Says:

    Yep Armitage, he is charismatic and Batman have to be like that! :)

    I think look-wise he is perfect. Face and body are ready for the bat suit. Voice is not terrible and acting in teen wolf seems so-so. The only negative point I see, is DC comic movies become a too gay-friendly-franchise with actors based only on looks
