Keanu Reeves for Batman what do you think?

0 0
The idea of anyone suggesting Keanu Reeves seriously as a contender to play Batman a couple of years ago would probably have elicited outright ridicule. Sure, he made some interesting movies in 2013 (Man of Tai Chi and 47 Ronin), but they came after a period mostly defined by inactivity.

But then John Wick happened, and all of a sudden he's fashionable again, landing more interesting parts and the inevitable sequels to his hitman smash. And all of this despite not really having to reinvent himself at all: it's funny how the wheel of fortune spins.


Reeves would be able to pull off the other-worldly, removed sort of spirit you'd want from Bruce Wayne, simply by not really acting all that much. There's definitely something to his casual, dead-eyed demeanour (which seems to have now been reinvented as a sort of tangible coolness), and he's definitely got the kung-fu credentials and the hard-action chops to play Batman too. The more you think about it, the more the idea of John Wick playing Batman should appeal.

I really don't think so. Keanu is a very good actor, no doubt but playing batman needs someone with a dark aura eminating from him when he wears the cape. I don't think Keanu has that.

I am a big fan of him.
But for Batman.. someone young.. who stick to the role for 10-15 years should be the guy!!

very suitable because his character resembles a hero and his eyes are very sharp.

I think we would have to understand first how Christian Bale got the part in Batman Begins . According to Christopher Nolan , Bale understood the batman plight for having lost both of his parents due to unchecked crime and if even having world riches doesn't help you then who is giving hope to the helpless common public.

He knew that batman is someone who has to be self-righteous, intimidating, no-nonsense approach, authoritative personality, theatrics, emotionally unstable, misfit and most of all a symbol of hope.

For me, Keanu doesn't have that much acting depth and will be a disaster like that we saw in case of Ben Affleck.

Better contender would be someone like James McAvoy who demonstrated his acting abilities in Split where he successfully and convincingly portrayed multiple personalities (24 to be precise) in a single person!!

Naaah!! Keanu has a very different acting demeanour. I don't think it will make sense to cast him as Batman. Batman is a dual personality - one of which is put on the other the lonesome, brooding types. So while Keanu is good for the second the first one appears doubtful. I even found his casting as John Wick surprising. And even Ben Affleck was surprising. But it came out all good at the end for Ben so you never know about Keanu as well!! The bloke is a good actor!!
