List Rules Vote up the actors you'd most like to see play the Dark Knight in future DC movies.

Who can play Batman? Lots of actors can play Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, and a whole bunch have actually done so, from Adam West on through Michael "Big Mike" Keaton, Christian "Newsies" Bale, and even Ben "Beantown Bad Boy" Affleck. Speaking of Affleck, he's one of the only things people liked about Batman v. Superman, but after he dodged directorial duties on The Batman, there are rumors that's eager to put the Batcave in his rearview mirror.

If Batfleck does indeed wiggle his way out of whatever ironclad contract he signed, who would you want to see starring as Batman? Really, any handsome dude with a strong chin can fill out the cowl. So it's really about what kind of Batman you want to see: a demon-voiced brooder like Bale's Bruce Wayne, a punch-drunk egomaniac like the Lego version brought to aural life by Will Arnett, or maybe even a flippant playboy like George Clooney's quippy and nipply crimefighter?

Obviously nobody can hold a candle to Kevin Conroy, but vote up the actors you'd most like to see respond to the Batsignal.
