Which Actor Should Portray The Red Hood In A DCEU Batman Film

According to rumours, Jason Todd/Red Hood might be the main villain in the next Batman solo film. While Ben Affleck and Jared Leto are more than likely (probably definitely) to reprise their roles as Bruce Wayne/Batman and the Joker respectively, there’s been no mention of who will don the hood yet (although, this could still be revealed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). So we’ve racked our brains and come up with a list of four names that could pull off the role:

Adam Driver


The new Star Wars baddie pulls off the villainous role and undoubtedly is the right age to portray Todd. The question is, will his new role in the Star Wars universe keep him tied up for the next couple of years?

Aaron Paul


Jason Todd is a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who got caught up in a whole lot of trouble. Sound familiar? While Paul might not look like the comic book version of Todd, he certainly could pull off the role of a damaged soul.

Jensen Ackles


The favourite choice since Ackles did provide the voice to Todd in the animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood. Many fans already view him as the quintessential Red Hood, but does Warner Bros. think he’s a big enough name?

Dan Stevens


If you haven’t seen it yet, watch The Guest. Stevens is pretty much Todd in a different film and he’s more than capable of portraying someone with an agenda. Also, who wouldn’t want to see him beat Leto’s Joker with a crowbar?

Who do you think could portray the Red Hood in the upcoming Batman film?

  1. I hope this will be based on the animated film, Under the Red Hood, one of my favourite animated films. In that case, I wouldn’t see Aaron Paul and Jensen Ackles as a good fit for the role.

  2. Jensen is the obvious choice but he is looking older these days so it depends on Red Hood age. Also the last film Ackles acted in…sure he is good for series but a film…I just keep on getting Flashbacks of my Bloody Valentine. Zach??? I would rather die than see him pick up the mantle of the Red Hood so that’s a no for me. Pity that Scott Adkins is almost as old as Affleck, I would love to see him get some Batman family role darn it! So I shall go with Ackles too I guess
