WOW. Check out all the actors who are currently signed up to be in the next Batman film (currently titled Batman: Intimidation Game, might officially be called Batman Begins):
- Bruce Wayne/Batman... Christian Bale (American Psycho, Reign of Fire, Shaft, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Captain Corelli's Mandolin)
- Lucious Fox... Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy, Se7en, Outbreak, Bruce Almighty, The Shawshank Redemption)
- Ducard... Liam Neeson (Schindler's List, Love Actually, Gangs of New York, The Phantom Menace, The Haunting)
- Alfred Pennyworth... Michael Caine (Secondhand Lions, The Quiet American, The Cider House Rules, Austin Powers in Goldmember)
- R'as al Ghul (Main Villain)... Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai)
- Commissioner Gordon... Not yet signed, but possibly Dennis Quaid (Dragonheart, Any Given Sunday, Traffic)
- And the director is Chris Nolan (Memento). Bring back Danny Elfman!
Looks like Warner Bros is trying to make up for the two abominations that Joel Schumacher came up with in '95 and '97. Of course, some of you are probably gonna say, "But...it's Christian Bale!"
