Ryan Gosling As Batman?
Could Ryan Gosling be the next man to play Batman? That seems to be what the folks over at think. In a post left on their message board, site owner Robert Sanchez says that Notebook star Ryan Gosling was Warner Brothers and DCís top choice to play Batman in their upcoming Justice League of America movie.
If youíre not up to speed on JLA, hereís the skinny: Rumor has it that the film will be a computer animated movie, directed by Happy Feet and Mad Max helmer George Miller. Itís already pretty much confirmed that neither Christian Bale nor Brandon Routh will be involved in the movie in any capacity as Superman or Batman, leaving the WB to look for someone new to voice the characters for their animated movie adventures while Bale and Routh continue on in their live-action, solo caped crusading.
Sanchez admits he has no confirmation on Goslingís involvement with JLA, and in fact official announcements on anything having to do with JLA have so far been scarce. Even the involvement of Miller at this stage is still just a very likely rumor. So donít hold your breath for Gosling yet, if indeed you bat-fans really want him voicing the character. Personally, I have a hard time picturing the soft-spoken Goslingís voice coming out from under Batmanís dark cowl. Being Batman requires somethingÖ deeper? Goslingís a very nice actor, but voice actor? I donít know.
