Daniel day lewis

Average listal rating (12 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
1. Daniel Day Lewis
Joker



Let's face it, Heath Ledger did a great job as Joker, but he wasn't the "Joker" Joker, he was more like "Nolan type of characters" Joker.
Daniel Day-Lewis is brilliant actor and he has the physical appearance of the Joker, and that's why he is my first choice for this part.

Nolan's Joker is a fascinating character, but Gotham deserves the Joker as it was originaly designed.



Average listal rating (124 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
2. David Hyde Pierce
Edward Nygma/The Riddler



David Hyde Pierce has the looks of somone with superior intellect, he has the ability to play psychopathic roles and above all he can be funny and serious simultaneously, and that's why he is my choice for this part.

After Jim Carrey, you just can't go wrong...

Average listal rating (544 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
3. Michael Fassbender
Harvey Dent/Two-Face



Michael Fassbender is one of the most underrated actors.
He is briliant and he has the ability to play this kind of characters.
Above all, I allways imagined Harvey Dent like Michel, and that's why he is my choice for this part.

Average listal rating (1665 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
4. Helena Bonham Carter
Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel/Harley Quinn



Ah, Helena. She is my favourite actress.
She has a physical appearance of Harley Quinn, and she is my only choice for this part. I just love her.

Average listal rating (1722 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
5. Cate Blanchett
Pamela Lillian Isley/Poison Ivy



Let's face it, she is a brilliant actress and she is most definitely hot enough for this part. After seeing her in a role of Galadriel it hit me: "she can be mysterious, she has the looks, she can be seductive, she is just perfect for Ivy" And of course, after Uma Thurman, you just can't go wrong...

Average listal rating (1189 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
6. Kevin Spacey
Roman Sionis/Black Mask



Actor that will play Roman Sionis must be a bit older because Roman was friend of Thomas Wayne, he must seem welthy, he must look smart and he must pull off the part of an underground crime lord.

Kevin Spacey is a brilliant actor, one of my very favorites, and I think that he is most suitable for this part.

Average listal rating (781 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
7. Joaquin Phoenix
Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow



No particular reason. I just always imagined Dr. Crane as Joaquin...

Average listal rating (1112 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
8. Kate Beckinsale
Selina Kyle/Catwoman



Michelle Pfeiffer did a brilliant job. She set up almost unreachable standard. If anyone has the ability to break that standard, it's Kate Beckinsale...

Average listal rating (895 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
9. Viggo Mortensen
Ra's al Ghul



I always thought that he could do a lot better than Liam Neeson. He certainly looks more like Ra's...

Average listal rating (1478 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
10. Edward Norton
Victor Zsasz



He always seemed to me like the most logical choice for Zsasz.

Average listal rating (950 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
11. Hugo Weaving
Hugo Strange



What to say? Hugo for Hugo... :D
the count's rating:

Average listal rating (453 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
12. Tom Hardy
Bane



I have trust in Nolan's judgment...
You can't say that Hardy is not good...
the count's rating:

Average listal rating (3182 ratings) 8.7  IMDB Rating
13. Johnny Depp
Jason Todd/Red Hood



I think that he is suitable to play Robin, and since Jason Todd (the second robin) is actually Red Hood he must also be suiatble for that part...
the count's rating:

Average listal rating (912 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
14. Philip Seymour Hoffman
Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot/Penguin



Tim Burton created a brilliant character, but also disgusting one. I couldn't stand DeVito's penguin.
I think that Philip could be the penguin as it sholuld be...

Average listal rating (390 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
15. Guy Pearce
Arthur Brown/Cluemaster



Cluemaster was not yet put on a screen, so there is no one to compare my choice with...
I guess physical resemblance should be enough...

Average listal rating (772 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
16. Colin Farrell
Floyd Lawton/Deadshot



He did the Bullseye pretty well, I would like to see him as Deadshot next...

Average listal rating (353 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
17. Wesley Snipes
Garfield Lynns/Firefly



Not a well known villain. I'm not even sure why i picked Snipes. He just poped on my mind... :D

Average listal rating (724 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
18. Mike Myers
Julian Gregory Day/Calendar Man



I allways pictured Calendar Man to look a bit like dr. Evil... :D :p

Average listal rating (572 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
19. Eric Bana
Dr. Thomas Elliot/Hush



Knowing that he was Bruce Wayne's childhood friend, he would have to be same age as Bruce himself. Eric Bana is the most logical choice to many people, so I have also accepted him as such... :D

Average listal rating (400 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
20. Mickey Rourke
Basil Karlo/Clayface



It's quite simple actually....
He is big enough and he has a bit messed up face... :D

Average listal rating (57 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating
21. Kevin Grevioux
Waylon Jones/Killer Croc



After seeing him in underworld, I thought: "he is made for Killer Croc".

Average listal rating (385 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
22. Andy Serkis
Jervis Tetch/Mad Hatter



If you have to ask why, you must be blind...

Average listal rating (538 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
23. Jeff Bridges
Maxie Zeus



Maxie Zeus is one of the worst batman villains, but Jeff could make him intersesting...

Average listal rating (433 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
24. Ben Kingsley
Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze



Arnold wasn't as bad as people think he was. Main problem in Batman & Robin was scenario. (C'mon, after you look at George Clooney, Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone and Jeep Swenson, you realize that Arnold Schwarzenegger was a brightspot of the movie.) He isn't Mr. Freeze as I imagined him to be, but he could pull it off quite nicely.
About Freeze as I see him: Ben Kingsley, Ben Kingsley, Ben Kingsley and only Ben Kingsley...

Average listal rating (845 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
25. Hugh Laurie
Lonnie Machin/Anarky



Yes, I know that Anarky is just a kid, but for my movie, I would change this character a bit.
Hugh Laurie is perfect for "Anarky as he should be by my opinion".

Average listal rating (289 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
26. Jeremy Renner
Thomas Blake/Catman



Who could compete with Selina Kyle if not Jeremy... :D

Average listal rating (1015 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
27. Ralph Fiennes
Curt Calhoun/Prometheus



My only choice for this part...

Average listal rating (530 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
28. Tim Roth
Simon Hurt



Fantastic actor...

Average listal rating (1525 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
29. Steve Buscemi
Arnold Wesker/Ventriloquist



Buscemi wanted to be a ventriloquist as a child, and I would be more than delighted to make his dream come true.
He most certainly has the face for it...

30. Liev Schreiber
Solomon Grundy



If you have to ask, look at the picture again...

Average listal rating (29 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
31. Lou Ferrigno
Mark Desmond/Blockbuster



He pulled off Hulk, he can pull of Blockbuster...

Average listal rating (689 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
32. Jason Statham
Warren White/Great White Shark



Let's see. Both of them are badass, and physical resemblance is nonnegligible...

Average listal rating (35 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
33. Joseph Gordon Lewitt
Alberto Falcone



Joseph is fine actor, but this choice is based simply on physical resemblance...

Average listal rating (871 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
34. Marion Cotillard
Talia al Ghul



If you have to ask why, don't expect the answer.
I think it's obvious enough. She is my only choice...
the count's rating:

Average listal rating (1123 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
35. Ian McKellen
Carmine Falcone



Ian McKellen as Falcone? Why not?
Tom Wilkinson did a great job, but I think that Ian is a bit more suitable...


 

I'm going to list some of the main batman villains and people who should play them by my opinion.... :)

Andy Serkis as the Mad Hatter. YES!

I never though there was a " Catman ". It made my day. xD
Great list, by the way. :)
All your choices look like the original. ^^

You get my vote for Helena alone! Great descriptions and I think any director planning to make more Batman installments should refer to this list!

I have doubts on Mr. Freeze though...

I pictured Heather Graham as Harley Quinn. Blonde, bubbly, able to play completely over the edge nuts. She scared the daylights out of me in Austin Powers 2.

Great ideas!

I think Michael Fassbender has smile like Joker :)
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at May 28 12:24
Total AGREEMENT on Bane. hardy is brilliant, have you seen Bronson?
But I totally disagree with the whole Joker/Scarcrow thing. I thought Ledger and Murphy were perfect for the roles.
I could agree on the fact that Ledger was more Nolan less comic book villain.
But they were still great.
But if I did choose a Joker, I thought I may have put RDJ in the role or he may be good as 2 face, IDK... What do you think?
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Nov 3 20:48
Wow. Terrible job here. Why would you choose Hugo Weaving as Hugo Strange or Colin Farrell as Deadshot? Why pick actors who have ALREADY played other superheroes or supervillians? That's just stupid. Isnt it bad enough that people like Ryan Reynolds have already been Deadpool, Green Lantern, and now Batman? There are others actors out there, who havent been in a comicbook film, who would probably do a better job than most of these you have picked. Lou Ferrigno was the Hulk. Leave it at that.

Also, your choice for Joker is horrible. Crispin Glover would be much better. Actually, anyone would be better than Daniel Day Lewis.
