NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!
I mean, who the f*ck is next? Johnny Depp?
Now that that’s out of my system, I really want to know how Bloom’s name got inserted into the Batman conversation. He’s definitely not a bad actor or anything, but I do not see his face when I utter the word “Batman”.
Orlando Bloom ≠ Batman
On top of that, this isn’t the latest Batman rumor to hit the internet. Recently, it was alleged that Bale was offered as much as 50 million to reclaim the cowl, (until WB/DC or Bale confirms, this rumor is bogus at best), and most of the internet went into a frenzy when Scott Adkins was rumored to be up for the role.
I get that people are excited about a new Batman. I really do. Hell, I wouldn’t be writing this post right now if I wasn’t excited. However, I think we all need to be a bit smarter with all of these names we throw around. And again, I know we all truly miss Bale, but we need to really let that go. He’s moved on to bigger things.
In closing, I’m hoping for a more reasonable pick.
Like Karl Urban or something.
I’d take Scott Adkins too.
