Christian Bale Will Not Play Batman in Justice League Film... So Who Should?

Try using the arrow keys

EW reported Tuesday that Christian Bale is officially retiring as Batman, refusing to commit to a role in the rumored Justice League movie (which is set to start production sometime in the pretty distant future, but I guess he's trying to give us a window of time to get over this). Bale's been quoted as saying that the role of Batman is "a torch that should be handed from one actor to another." Well, that may be true, Christian, but it doesn't mean that we don't feel a little bit abandoned. The last guy to wear the cape before you was George Clooney, and we all know how that went (really, really poorly). It's fair to say that we don't entirely trust whoever is in charge of casting Batmans — so here are our suggestions for actors who might not ruin everything.
