Nathan Fillion as Batman? It seems like Fillion's been rumored for practically every major superhero role in the past ten years, even though his commitment to 'Castle' might prevent any of that from taking place. Whether it's his looks, previous experience with 'Firefly', or his close connection to comic book movie king Joss Whedon, Fillion's name has been continuously up for several major comic book roles, including Ant-Man. The latest rumor is that Fillion could be up for Batman, although when asked about the idea, he says it's not likely.
Fillion spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the Batman rumors, and he stated, "I wonder if my throat could take it. I think I’d make an excellent Bruce Wayne; I think I’d make a terrible Batman.”
He also advises fans against creating rallies for certain actors to get the role, explaining, "If you wanted to see a particular person as Batman, I think one of the worst things you could do is shove it down someone’s throat as far as the new director of Batman or the new producers of Batman. Probably the worst thing you could do if there’s someone you want to be Batman is sort of rally.”
Fillion will next be seen in the next season of Castle, which will start airing at the end of September on ABC.
