Apparently Robert Pattinson is the most likely new Batman:

I wanted to dislike this choice, but if you look at the photo in the article and
take away the bushy haircut and the facial scruff, he seems to actually have
the lines for it.

I’m less concerned about the casting and more concerned about the fact that another movie adaptation of one of my favorite superheroes isn’t exciting news to me at all.

Not a terrible choice—which is damning with faint praise. Actors cast as Batman have, for thirty years, only needed to show up to be better choices than Michael Keaton.

This. So much. 

Now, had they announced Pattinson as Batman Beyond with Keaton playing the retired Bruce Wayne, I'd probably be intrigued.

Oh, sure, they’ll go with the guy with the soft chin!

They should have called Jon Hamm 10 years ago, dammit. Not only does he have a superhero chin, he has the voice!

He looks a lot like JB's version of Bruce Wayne, to boot:

I might be interested if this version went a different route.
Being that the title is THE BATMAN, how about a period piece set in the late thirties.

Looking online for a JB Bruce Wayne image showed me this:


I like it! I wonder who drew it. Looks like Steve Rude, but Supergirl doesn't look like his style.

EDIT: on second thought, this must be a fan - I can't see a pro mangling Superman's upper leg muscles like that.

That is the first “external” acknowledgment of GENERATIONS I’ve seen!

That GENERATIONS drawing kind of looks like Jon Bogdanove in parts.
