This new Batman flick will be about Batman’s beginnings. Thus, a actor like Patrick Wharburton would be too old and for god’s sake: every time I see him on screen, I wanna laugh (“The Tick” anyone?).
Rha’s Al Ghul will also be the perfect villain. If anyone knows of the history between he and Batman; you’ll understand this. Rha’s various tests to prove the Caped Crusador as a worthy successor (since Rha’s is “dying”) will be a excellent plot to this movie. As will as his daughter as a good possible romantic interest.
Also, Bale has proven to be a VERY good actor who is also highly athletic. I have no doubt that he’ll prove to be the BEST EVER choice for Batman. You heard it here first.
