We've been talking about Christian Bale's Batman successor for months, ever since he put the nail in the coffin of hope that he would not be returning. The need to find a new caped crusader was even more heightened with the Comic Con news, that Batman would appear in Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" sequel. Countless sites across the internet came up with their own list of who the next Batman should be. But do we now have a bit more of an actual understanding of what Warner Bros. has in mind for the character?
The new word on the street is that they are looking to cast an older actor in his 40s for the role, making it appear that "The Dark Knight Returns" material will be more of the inspiration for the film than originally believed. On the unofficial list of actors up for the role, Jon Hamm, Gerard Butler, and Josh Brolin have been tossed in the mix.
Armie Hammer has been a name frequently seen as a potential replacement. He has the right body type, a deep voice and has shown, despite his recent flop with "The Lone Ranger", that he certainly has the acting chops as well. But Hammer has told several sources that he's not interested in the role and is "not actually a big fan of superhero films."
