    Use a black lesbian trans-male. It wouldn’t be any good, but its a shoe-in for an Oscar.

    Idris Elba if he can’t be Bond he would make a good Batman for sure.

  • Patricia J Tibbits

    Jensen Ackles has the physical look, voice & amazing acting skills to play Batman! He deserves to have his talent be shown to the masses!! His show #Supernatural is going on Season 15, longest running show on the CW!! So yes, definitely Jensen Ackles gets my vote!!! #JensenAcklesForBatman

    Half of this guys aren’t young. Lot of them are over 30s they’ll probably not even be considered.
