We’ve had rumours about Jon Hamm. We’ve had rumours about Jake Gyllenhaal. And Matthew Goode. And Richard Armitrage. And, of course, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has shown an interest in returning to the DCEU as Flashpoint Batman after playing Thomas Wayne in Batman v Superman. With rumours swirling around that Affleck won’t return to the Batman role and that Matt Reeves will recast, there are dozens of other actors voicing their interest in the role. Including Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall, who actually voiced the character in the Justice League: Gods & Monsters animated movie.
In a recent interview promoting Netflix’s crime drama Safe, Yahoo asked the actor about his interest in Batman and his voice work as the character in Justice League: Gods & Monsters.
“In that particular iteration of the superhero origin story, it was an alternative universe, he was a vampire,” Hall said. “But Batman in general, I like him as a superhero, because he’s not particularly endowed with superpowers, he’s just smart. And the suit!”
His Safe co-star Amanda Abbington then proceeded to ask, “Is he your favourite superhero?”
“Batman? Sure,” Hall replied.
The presenter then remarks that Michael C. Hall would be an amazing Batman in a live-action film.
“You’d be a great Batman!” Abbington agreed.
Hall then looked into the camera and gave his best Batman impression. “Tell your friends about me. I’m Batman. I love that, that was the Michael Keaton version,” Hall said. “Well, thanks, sure. I’m all for that.”
