Um, James Coburn? Really? I'm not familiar with Dark Knight Returns - would a dead actor be appropriate for the piece?

Mickey Rourke is pretty fucking ugly, even without his Marv prothetics. I don't think he'd be a good visual match for Bruce, even a Bruce who gets the shit kicked out of him at one point.

Eastwood can really only play Eastwood. And Batman ain't Eastwood.

Michael Ironsides did a great voice for Bats...

(1) Kenneth Branaugh (this might be my new favorite. He can play ANYTHING, and this is basically Shakespeare with Batman, isn't it? What could be more appropriate? Put some makeup on him... there you go).
(2) Anthony Hopkins? (It's definitely a role worthy of his caliber... a stretch, but fun to think about).
(3) Brian Cox?
I've been thinking of these all day. I'm sure I've left off some. Of course, Cox and Hopkins probably would be too old if they decide to cool their heels on this... and on that note, an appropriately grizzled Kiefer Sutherland would be badass.
DennisMM wrote:Exactly. People seemed to think he was a senior citizen. He looked worse because of 20 years of gunshots, knife wounds and closed head injuries.

The one who would nail this to the wall, AND bring his career back AND be a million types of awesome in a kickass sunday with extra badass.....
And we'd get the dramatic mustache shaving scene to boot.

ETA - in my head, I imagine a similar dynamic to the one between Portman and Reno in Leon (The Professional)
