Christopher Nolan recommends Wes Bentley as the new Batman. Who?!

August 21st, 2013 by bash 1 Comment

Christopher Nolan has recommended Wes Bentley to Zack Snyder to play Batman in upcoming ‘Man Of Steel’ sequel, which will pit Bruce Wayne against Clark Kent.

According to Comic Book News, the English director is currently working closely with the actor on his upcoming sci-fi film, Interstellar.

However, other actors being considered for the role include Jake Gyllenhaal, Luke Evans and Ben Affleck, who, according to the site,¬†will all be called in for screen tests alongside Henry Cavill, who played Superman in this summer’s ‘Man Of Steel.’

Writer David Goyer is believed to be more of a fan of Gyllenhaal, as he was actually the writer’s preferred choice for Bruce Wayne in ‘Batman Begins.’

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.

    Wes would be up there in my estimation, he was great in American Beauty and Ghost Rider. He is still too young though. I think Guy Pearce would be great. He has a history with Nolan and was mentioned to play the role in
    Batman Begins.
