Ben as the Bat

Ok, so he's the next Batman...
That's not really my concern. He's got the acting chops to do it and I'm sure when they go to work on his physique and his knowledge of all things Batman, he'll be ready. No, I don't want to hear about Daredevil or any other bad movie he's ever done—if we thought like that, most great movies wouldn't get made for fear of what any actor did once upon a time.

So let's look at my concerns for this movie.

This Batman won't be what we get this go'round—Bat fans know what I'm talking about. I loved Bale, I loved this Trilogy; I love Nolan's world/version of Batman...but like a different comic series, though this new take on the Caped Crusader will have a variety of the same themes and plot points, it'll be something else. Bigger. It has to be, specifically because the Boy Scout is involved. If people can't scrub what Bale/Nolan did from their minds, it's going to really hurt the movie.

So who is the Batman we need?
  • Genius-level intellect: speaks a dozen or more languages, holds degrees in a variety of fields and disciplines 
  • Peak physical (Olympic/Professional level) conditioning: Requires 2-4hrs sleep
  • Master martial artist: 127 styles of martial arts including Muay Thai, Escrima, Krav Maga, Capoeira, Savate, Yawyan, Taekwondo, Judo, Jujitsu, Ninjitsu, Kendo, Fencing, Kenjitsu, Kali, Bojutsu, Francombat, Boxing, Kickboxing, Hapkido, Wing Chun, Parkour, Shorin Ryu, Silat, Chin Na, Hokuto Shinken, Kyudo, Aikido, Varma Adi, Jeet Kune Do, Shaolin, Ba Gua, Hung Gar, Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Kenpo, and Karate
  • Master detective: + or - Sherlock Holmes; equipped with the Bat Cave's infamous Bat Computer, which is linked into everything 
  • Master escapologist
  • Master strategist
  • Master tactician
  • Master marksman
  • Highly proficient with almost any high-tech (Secret Gov/Private Wayne Tec/Alien) equipment, weapons, armors, gadgets, programs, systems, etc.
  • Master of stealth
  • Exceptional pilot and driver  
  • Master of disguise and interrogation: his presence and ability to intimidate are second to none
  • His willpower is only superseded by Hal Jordan's
  • Access to vast, nearly unquantifiable wealth spread over the global economy.  
  • Photographic memory  
This is the Batman We Need. This is the Perfect Batman. The Justice Leauge Batman.
If we don't get it, what's the point? What's his purpose?
