    John answers viewers questions about Ryan Gosling playing Batman.
    AngryIrishBenjamin writes, Hey, John! Love the show. Ryan Gosling recently said he'd be willing to be in a Batman movie if it was directed by the dude who made La La Land and First Man. It's an interesting notion, even if it's unlikely to happen anytime soon.

    Ryan Gosling as Batman as the Notebook Heartthrob he would capture a whole new audience of fans. Especially Women. There would be more women coming over to watch the batman movies as before. The Batman Dynasty needs fresh Blood and a New Look especially a Sexy appealling guy that Ryan Gosling can bring to the table. Ben Affleck was great but he ran his time and now it's time for a Blast of fresh air. Maybe it's time for a Crossover. Disney needs to hookup with the Batman Franchise the DC Universe and have the Dark Knight tangle with Darth Vader not on you tube but on the big screen. Maybe a Black Hole Time warp space invasion of Earth by Darth's Forces would make a great film. Look out Darth VS Ryan Batman

    Armie Hammer is perfect to be Batman ... his heights and his body .. his voice and his looks and he's a good actor .. etc . No other I could see to play the coveted role of Batman but Armie Hammer !

    Ryan Gosling is an awful actor who would be a terrible batman. Karl Urban should be batman. Just watch DREDD and you will see what I mean

    Thanks for showing the actual comment your one of they who does so many others just sell the narrative that is more insisting or dramatic. I don’t get how you even get that he would only be in a batman movie if it was Damian directing from that quote

    NO. No Gosling. Thank God it's just bullshit, because Gosling as Batman or Bruce Wayne is awful idea. He is too boyish and doesn't have any darkness about him/ this aura some actors have.

      No. Gosling is terrible choice. He is too boyish and doesn't have this ''Batman'' darkness about him at all. He would be great older Flash/Barry Allen, but not Batman/Bruce Wayne.

    As much as I like Ryan Gosling, I don't see him as Batman. It just doesn't fit to me. Honestly, I would have to see it first. As of right now, I just don't see it all.

    It’s interesting though people all for him or against him playing Batman would loose their sh*t if he said he had no interest in playing Batman. Just like with Ethan Hawk and Peter Jackson saying he doesn’t have an interest in directing superhero movies. Even though they are constantly being asked these questions. And when they say how they really feel, fans take it as a personal attack on their precious movies. So called superhero movie fans are so emotional and take everything so personally. They really need to stop.

      100 % agree with you, I've been saying this for years now : comic book fans have become the most entitled, spoiled, childish, hateful bullies ever. When some actor is announced as first choice to play their fav superhero - at first they hate him, then when movie is a success - they love him, and then, after yrs they hate him again, because suddenly they can find 1000 little things they hate, even if this hate/ the reasoning is almost always the most ridiculous& irrational thing ever. This is what is happening now with Nolan Trilogy. Nolan&Bale did smth extraordinary and they said from the get go it's gonna be different and not really pure comic version, they revived Batman franchise, ppl loved it & they should be grateful to Nolan/Bale for what they did& these masterpieces, yet now with all the fighting online who is better Batman & all the hate from comic purists, for whom nothing is ever good enough - I see childish tantrums & hate. Bullshit hate - because again, these idiots can't really explain what they hate it's all really jumping on bandwagon, but hate is the only thing they're consistent with. They can also hate an actor even if this actor has not started playing the role yet. And they are all ''experts'' on filmmaking. Pathetic. This is why I don't blame actors like Hawk when he says what he said or Christian Bale, who said he will never do another superhero/ comic based movie again. Who needs this toxicity? Ben Affleck also got tired of all this shit, fans don't see it, but the mess with current DCEU is, partly, fans fault - their constant whining also pushed WB in the worng direction (but this is another topic). Anyway, what is great for ppl who really love movies/cinema in general, not just superhero movies (like me) this is actually liberating. I don't need the most ''comic accurate'' movie/superhero, it is boring and bland, so I'm thankful for all creativity & original approach, I love Nolan's version and Bale's Batman, but overall I just love good, great movies, I love both Hawk and Bale - great actors, I also like Gosling very much and I want them to play as many great, varied roles as possible, so for me it's actually better. They don't need this comic book universe toxicity. And good for Hawk that he stood by what he believes. I actually agree with him - I'm so tired of superhero movies by this stage, it's just too much now and for me, except the Nolan Trilogy, its all really repetitive and unoriginal.

    Nah man, Ryan Gosling is my favorite actor because he plays so many different roles!
    Let’s be honest, a comic book movie would lock him down for a while and paint him in a corner!
    He doesn’t need a comic book casting to be the great actor that he is.

    I think WB should take a break from making Batman movies for a couple of years. Build up the audience appetite and focus on other characters - I'd rather see The Flash and Cyborg getting their own movies than rehashing the Batman origin story so soon after Nolan and Snyder/Whedon's versions. Unless someone can put a dramatically different spin on it - leave well alone

    They probably thought First Man was another "man" superhero ala Batman, Superman, Spider Man. That must be it. BTW, First Man's super power is that he is always the first to comment on a video. If that was my super power I'd want to upgrade to Bat Man too.

  • Lee Vue
    Lee Vue 9 months ago +14

    I think Scott Adkins would make a perfect Batman and Bruce Wayne in my opinion. He definitely has the looks for it. Not to mention, he has martial arts/stunt skills too and that would complement the character. The only problem is his height. Lol But I can still see him as Bruce/Batman. I can also see Adkins as Nightwing too. (Well at least for the film version since there's already a Dick Grayson on Titans.) Either one will be a good choice.

      Nomad _1819 9 months ago +2

      Lee Vue ... oh my god. There’s a reason he makes straight to dvd films he cannot act!
      And in big films he has no lines why? Because he cannot act!

    • Jan

      The other problem is his acting. He sucks

      RONAN DAX 9 months ago

      Damn I thought Adtkins was like 6ft 2 or something, he always appeared taller to me. He'd still be a great Batman though.

    • J I M Jenks
      J I M Jenks 9 months ago +1

      I dont think he is a good enough actor to lead a major blockbuster especially playing Batman, he certainly looks the part but thats about it for me.

    • RainFlawlessGaming
      RainFlawlessGaming 9 months ago +1

      Christian Bale is 6'0, Adkins is about 5'10/5'11. It could work.

    Richard Amitage (Thorin Oakenshield) was the guy just behind Ben Affleck in line to play Batman. They should get him. He is a very good actor.

    I hope DC just reboots. Gosling was my pick for Barry Allen Flash back in like 2007 because of his great drama and comedy chops as well as his looks, and his career since then has just proved what an incredible actor he is with a wide range. He could really play anything. I’d be down for him as Batman too. He can go quite dark, especially in a noir detective film. Would love to see him as a superhero at DC if they ever get their shit together. He’s smart to stay away from the dumpster fire DCEU.
