Fan-Cast: Batman solo!

We currently have a new Batman in Robert Pattinson directed by Matt Reeves and also starring Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, and more. But this fan cast will focus on Batfleck’s universe. But only time will tell for sure if we ever get to see that world built more…

Obviously, Batman has already been cast so no need to fan-cast him along with the Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons), Commissioner Gordon (JK Simmons), Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), and the Suicide Squad characters. So far it looks like Bruce has worked with at least Dick and Jason (who Harley & Joker killed), and we have both a Nightwing and Batgirl solo film confirmed (which means they’ll eventually be cast).

BANE

TBA

BARBARA GORDON (Batgirl/Oracle)

Batgirl Barbara Gordon fan cast

Allison W, Anna K, Ashley G, Daisy R, Emma S, Emma W, Jane L, Lily J, Marie A, Naomi S, Olivia C, Riley K, Rose L, Shailene W, Willa F, Zoey D.

Now that it’s been confirmed Jena Malone is NOT Barbara Gordon, we can fan cast her! Now Affleck’s Batman has been Batman for awhile, so I’d assume he’s already worked with Barbara, who would be either Batgirl or Oracle now right? Well now that she has a solo film coming with Joss Whedon basically set to direct it, it sounds like she’ll be stepping back into crime-fighting after the events of The Killing Joke…

BATWOMAN (Katherine “Kate” Kane)

Batwoman

Alexandra B, Alexandra D, Allison W, Amanda R, Anna K, Emily B, Emmy R, Evan RW, Ingrid BB, Olivia W, Rachel N, Riley K.

I tried to vary on age a bit for this fan-cast and of course looked at fan suggestions as well. I think anyone (who can act of course) could be Kate, but we’ll see!

*UPDATE – Jessica Chastain removed due to casting in X-Men Dark Phoenix.*

BLACK MASK (Roman Sionis)

*UPDATE – Ewan McGregor officially cast as Black Mask in Birds of Prey film.

The poll included Aidan Turner, Alexander Skarsgard, Clive Owen, Colin Farrell, Eric Bana, Jason Statham, Jon Hamm, Joseph Fiennes, Matthew Goode, Matthew McConaughey, Richard Armitage, Rufus Sewell, Timothy Olyphany, Viggo Mortensen, Wes Bentley, and Zachary Quinto with Statham at #1.*

CASSANDRA CAIN (Batgirl/Black Bat)

Ella Jay Basco is Cassandra in the Birds of Prey film.

CATWOMAN (Selina Kyle)

Catwoman

Berenice M, Carla G, Charlize T, Diane K, Elsa P, Emily B, Eva G, Jordana B, Karla S, Kate B, Lena H, Olga K, Olivia W, Paula P, Sarah S.

Given that they decided to go with an older Batman in the DCCU, there’s a possibility Catwoman would be older as well. So I had a huge age range in possible choices and tried my best to narrow it down. If I am missing anyone, let me know. If not, vote in the poll who you would pick!

*UPDATE – Amber Heard removed due to casting as Mera in Justice League and Aquaman. Milla Jovovich removed due to casting in Hellboy reboot.*

DAMIAN WAYNE

For now, I’m leaving off fan-casting for Damian as I don’t know how likely he’ll show up in the DC Films universe.

DEATHSTROKE (Slade Wilson)

*UPDATE* Joe Manganiello confirmed to be Deathstroke!

DICK GRAYSON (Nightwing)

dick grayson nightwing

Adam G, Armie H, Bob M, Brant D, Daniel R, Daniel S, Douglas B, Drew R, Dylan OB, Finn W, Garrett H, Kevin Z, Logan L, Penn B, Steven RM.

The reason I left him simply Dick Grayson is because I don’t know what alter ego we could see him as in the DCEU. There’s a lot of rumors surrounding the Robins and one is that Dick will already be Nightwing and has parted ways from Bruce. So I’m fan casting for Nightwing/Dick…hopefully that is true. UPDATE – Nightwing will get his own solo film which confirms the rumors of where he’s at in the DCEU…Let’s hope to hear casting soon!

*UPDATE – Tyler Hoechlin removed due to casting in CW’s Supergirl as Superman. Ben Barnes removed due to casting in The Punisher.*

HARVEY DENT (Two-Face)

Two Face Harvey Dent

Aidan T, Armie H, Eric B, Ethan H, Joel E, Jonathan RM, Jon H, Joseph F, Keanu R, Kevin M, Leonardo D, Martin W, Matthew M, Richard A, Timothy O.

Maybe we will see the evolution of Two-Face as well in the DCCU? All we really know is that Batman has been fighting crime for a while now. Who knows how many villains he has already taken down, (besides the ones in Arkham in Suicide Squad, who he supposedly took down).

*UPDATE – Jude Law removed due to casting in Captain Marvel.*

HUNTRESS (Helena Bertinelli)

*UPDATE – Mary Elizabeth Winstead is Huntress in Birds of Prey.

The poll included – Aiysha Hart, Alexis Knapp, Ana De Armas, Ashley Greene, Astrid Berges Frisby, Courtney Eaton, Daisy Ridley, Emmy Rossum, Genesis Rodriguez, Julia Voth, Marie Avgeropoulos, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (yay!), Meghan Ory, Olivia Wilde, Phoebe Tonkin, Rooney Mara with Wilde at #1.*

JASON TODD (Red Hood?)

Jason Todd Red Hood

Alexander L, Alex P, Daniel S, Dominic S, Douglas B, Drew R, Edward H, Glenn P, Harry L, Jake A, Kit H, Jeremy S, Liam H, Nolan GF, Taron E, William M.

Jason is confirmed to be the dead Robin of the cinematic universe (as it should be). Whether we see him become Red Hood is the big question. I’d like to think Affleck will incorporate him in his solo film, or perhaps Nightwing’s film, but we’ll have to wait and see…

POISON IVY (Pamela Isley)

poison ivy pamela isley

Aiysha H, Alexandra B, Alexandra D, Amanda R, Blake L, Bryce DH, Carice VH, Eva G, Evan RW, Haley B, Holland R, Jane L, Natalie D, Olivia W, Riley K, Sarah G.

I found a lot of fan-cast ideas from fans and included a few of my own. I am missing actresses, most likely, because I feel that the casting of Poison Ivy is the most versatile. As long as the actress can act and doesn’t mind wearing a wig/dying her hair, she could work. We may not see Ivy in Batman’s solo but if Gotham City Sirens film actually happens, we can expect casting to occur at some point for the character.

*UPDATE – Amber Heard removed due to casting as Mera in Justice League and Aquaman. Jessica Chastain removed due to casting in X-Men Dark Phoenix. Mary Elizabeth Winstead removed due to casting in Birds of Prey.*

RA’S AL GHUL

Ra's Al Ghul

Ashraf B, Billy Z, Ghassan M, Ian AD, Jason I, Keanu R, Ken W, Oded F, Richard A, Rufus S, Shaun T, Viggo M.

It was definitely difficult finding suitable actors for this role…I really hope there isn’t another white actor portraying the character (although both previous actors were fine). I did look for other’s fan cast ideas to incorporate with any of my own. Although it sounds like we may not see the Al Ghuls for awhile in this film universe…

*UPDATE – Alexander Siddig removed due to casting as Ra’s Al Ghul (yes!) in Gotham (boo). Daniel Day Lewis removed due to retirement. Joaquin Phoenix removed due to casting as Joker in solo origin film.*

THE RIDDLER (Edward Nygma)

The Riddler Edward Nygma

Andrew S, Casey A, Domhnall G, Eddie R, Jay B, Jim P, Johnny D, Justin B, Martin W, Matthew G, Matthew GG, Neil PH.

There’s a bit of a tease/easter egg in Batman v Superman of The Riddler, and Snyder revealed he also originally had plans to introduce him in the film. But to save time, he didn’t (thankfully). So instead, we can fan-cast him for the solo! Or whenever he pops up I guess…

*UPDATE – Jude Law removed due to casting in Captain Marvel.*

SILVER ST. CLOUD

Silver St Cloud

Abbie C, Alexandra B, Brittany S, Charlize T, Claire C, Diane K, Elizabeth B, Kate B, Katheryn W, Piper P, Rosamund P, Sienna M.

Given that this Batman is older than what we’ve been introduced to before, I don’t know the possibility of Silver showing up in this universe. Especially if they want to save on crowd control. Perhaps they can do what Gotham did, where Bruce met her when in school.

*UPDATE – Serinda Swan removed due to casting as Medusa in Inhumans. Michelle Williams removed due to casting in Venom. Alice Eve removed due to casting in Marvel’s Iron Fist.*

STEPHANIE BROWN (Batgirl/Robin/Spoiler)

Stephanie Brown Spoiler

Annasophia R, Brighton S, Chloe M, Ella P, Elle F, Halston S, Kiernan S, Maika M, Nicola P, Odeya R, Peyton L, Saoirse R, Sophie N, Stefanie S, Taissa F.

Batman has so many Robins/Batgirls/etc and I’m not sure if we’ll see all of them in the DC movie-verse. Perhaps a few might have to go to the TV universe for any live-action attempt. I’ll fan-cast Stephanie anyways, though. If she does get a chance at live-action, I think she should stick to being called Spoiler, to differentiate from others and not further confuse non-CB readers. She’d probably be one of the youngest as well.

*UPDATE – Olivia Holt removed due to casting in Cloak & Dagger. Virginia Gardner removed due to casting in Marvel’s Runaways. Skyler Samuels removed due to casting in The Gifted. Dove Cameron removed due to casting in Agents of SHIELD.*

TALIA AL GHUL

Talia Al Ghul

Aiysha H, Berenice M, Camilla B, Freida P, Gemma A, Jordana B, Lynn C, Moran A, Noomi R, Olga K, Priyanka C, Tatiana M.

Finding actresses was a bit difficult for Talia, even when I looked for fans’ suggestions. Again, the Al Ghul’s may not make an appearance in this universe but we can still fan-cast, yeah?

*UPDATE – Odette Annable removed due to casting in Supergirl as Reign.*

TIM DRAKE

Tim Drake Red Robin

Asa B, Ashton M, BooBoo S, Brandon SH, Dylan OB, Josh H, Logan L, Nick R, Sterling B, Timothee C, Tyler P, Zachary G.

Now if Affleck does bring back the Robins into the DCEU, it makes sense to go with Tim next, given that in the comics he is the 3rd person to don the name. Thanks to BvS, we see the events that happened with Jason Todd had already occurred and with a Nightwing solo announced, we can confirm Dick and Jason are around. So next up would logically be Tim. I tried to vary in the FC with fan suggestions and my own.

*UPDATE – Ryan Potter removed due to casting in Titans series.*

VICKI VALE

Vicki Vale

Amanda R, Bar P, Carla G, Jamie K, Jennifer M, Malin A, Olivia W, Rachel B, Rachel N, Rebecca F, Sarah L, Sophia B.

Now I don’t know the likeliness of Vicki appearing in the film universe, but I am really trying to include as many characters from the Batman universe into this fan-cast. Let me know who you’d pick (and as always, if I’m missing someone).

*UPDATE – Lauren Cohan removed due to casting as Martha Wayne in Batman v Superman. Brie Larson removed due to casting as Captain Marvel. Serinda Swan removed due to casting as Medusa in Inhumans. Michelle Williams removed due to casting in Venom.*

  1. On your Silver St. Cloud fancast, you have a not down at the bottom, saying Alice Eve is casted in Iron Fist…? But when I looked up her page on wikipedia it has no mention of it.
