Who would you all choose to be the next Batman?

I think someone like Fassbender would make a good Bruce though chances are they won't be able to pull him away from being Magneto. Armie Hammer seems to be getting traction as one of the candidates, he was suppose to be Bruce Wayne in the failed JLA film a few years back. Bradley Cooper could make a good Bruce Wayne too but chances are they might go with a rather unknown actor in the new one.

Depending on how young they want to make this Batman, Liam Hemsworth?

I wouldn't mind Chris Pine either - I think a lot of his presumptive, cocky Kirk-isms would translate well to a Bruce Wayne character. That age would be a lot closer too to Cavill.

Sorry RFX, I usually agree with your thoughts and you´re a knowledgeable guy but I don´t like any of those suggestions. None of those guys looks Bruce Wayne-y to me. I know there have been some odd choices for Bats in the past, but I would really like to see someone who fits the part physically and already looks "brooding" or "taciturn", and that can also crack a decent joke or two.

I think it would be interesting if they made Batman older and the strife is all about Bruce loosing his grip with being the "guy"...

Matthew Goode would make a pretty cool Bruce Wayne/Batman and he's already proven he can do the superhero thing in Watchmen (another Zack Snyder movie), was excellent in Stoker too and was a top contender during the castings for Man of Steel as Clark Kent/Superman apparently.

Also, Matt Bomer who coincidentally has voiced Superman/Clark Kent in Superman: Unbound and Karl Urban who has done Dredd, Star Trek and Bourne Supremacy.

The only thing I hope WB doesn't do is cast someone taller than Cavill because Batman cannot be taller than Superman.

If they are smart they won't position this film as MoS 2, but it's own separate thing. Too much baggage would be carried over and I would honestly like to see Superman get his own true sequel without having it be so Batman heavy.

Worlds Finest makes a lot of sense, but I guess I can see why they might be hesitant with that title. Unlike "Man of Steel" it wouldn't hold much weight with the general public.

Overall I am going to remain optimistic here. I'm glad that DC is finally expanding their movies to acknowledge a greater universe beyond each films core character. Moves like this will help transition them towards JLA and other team franchises.

.

I don't know, I could see a lot of the events from MOS leading directly into this next movie, it also helps to firmly place it in the MOS universe and further distance it from the Nolan movies. On the other hand, I was kind of hoping all the death and destruction from MOS would lead into the Superman/Luther relationship, but I could see them doing that with Superman/Batman instead, but that seems less satisfying to me.

I think Fassbender would make a great Bruce Wayne. He has that charming yet brooding look on him.

You are already set up for disappointment:

When Goyer was asked whether or not he was surprised about the backlash surrounding Superman breaking General Zod's neck at the end of Man of Steel, he replied:

"To a certain extent, Superman, cinematically, hadn't been reinvented since the Donner films. We will be dealing it with the coming film. He's not fully formed in [Man of Steel]. He will have to deal with the repercussions in the next film."

I like Fassbender, but he always seems way too thin physically for what I imagine Batman to look like, especially if he was standing next to Cavill.

To be fair, Superman should be more built and bigger anyways. Batmans gear padding should help too one in a suit.

Plus Keaton, Looney and Kilmer all played Bruce Wayne so Fassbender should be no problem.
Fassbender was actually pretty ripped in 300 and he was much younger then, I am sure a few months of training and some steroids will bulk him up.
At the moment, I think he is built like Bale.

I, for one, wouldn't mind seeing Batman be the villain of the movie. Essentially make MoS2 where Bats is the bad guy. Having a super-team-up seems a bit hokey to me at this point and in the context of the MoS universe.

I thought about Matt Bomer too...

He almost has to be the bad guy - how is he going to hang with Superman? He is invincible...
