I actually think he would do a good job as Batman. I'm interested. He's a good actor outside of Twilight, he's bulked up to superhero weight before, I like the choice.I could see them doing some screen tests with him and seeing how he fits the role first, but in a general sense, he's a good fit to me.

I'm just bored with Batman these days and could use a break.

I remember just about everyone originally hating the idea of Heath Ledger as the Joker.

First, I never said he didn't do anything else, I said that was the one he was known for. Quick, without looking it up, tell me one non-Twilight film he's been in.

Second, don't speak for me. I watch all kinds of movies. Action, adventure, martial arts, sci-fi, comedy, western, horror, thriller, coming of age, big budget, low budget, no budget, indie, foreign, mockbuster (love those), and yes, even cheesy gothic vampire romance. Just because we're on a toy website doesn't mean all our movies have ray-guns and explosions.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire :P, that I've watched. Other than that I remember hearing praise for his role in "Remember Me", which I haven't watched because I didn't want to watch when it was on cinemasdue to grudge towardsTwilight, and Water for Elephants which I wasn't in the mood for drama.

I'm glad you have such diverse taste, which is why I used "most", not "all", and "mostly", not "only". Have you watched a movie with him in it other than the Twilight Saga? Did you honestly hate it that much in any non-Cullen role to say he's gonna be terrible as Batman?

You just made my point for me. "That'sthe ONE we remember him from." "He's NOT HALF BAD." ". . . AWAY FROM MAINSTREAM." Not exactly glowing accolades for an actor.

Bottom line, he's got just enough name recognition to put a few butts in seats and spark a few write-ups, but not enough that they'd have to pay NAME money.

"Not half bad" is an expression used to compliment someone, in that they're not even half or a little bad in what they do.

I don't know why doing something away from mainstream would be giving someone bad rep. There are amazing actors that don't necessarily want the mass recognition and tabloids that come from involvement in mainstream media. Some prefer to be private, this would likelybe the case after Twilight saga and the divorce drama for him.

They wouldn't pay name money, anyway. Most of the reason American studios hire a British actor or an Australian actor to play an American character in their movie is because they can pay that actor less. With a few exceptions, because they live outside the US, they are not SAG-AFTRA members, and hiring a non-member actor from overseas is a loophole that can get them around having to pay agreed upon minimum salaries.

See, at the end of the day, what people thought of Ben Affleck didn't matter as he was an accomplished actor, writer, producer, and director: in short, an extremely creative and talented individual. Being as generous as I possibly can under the circumstances, Bob Pattinson . . . played a sparkly vampire.

Not my first choice either, but I'm okay with him. I really didn't want them to cast somebody in their twenties like some of the rumors swirling around for a while, because Batman has to have some age on him. Thirties is okay if I can't have an oldgrouchy Bats. What's most important though, is what will he look like as a Batman figure?

If he's not bruce Wayne, then I'm actually intrigued. If he's like,Dick grayson as batman, orif he's terry mcguiness and Michael Keaton is Bruce Wayne, then I'm definitely on board.

Very interesting and cool ideas that will definitely not happen.
