[Movies] Nathan Fillion Says He'd Be a Terrible Batman For Man of Steel 2 Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 08.18.2013
But he'd be a good Bruce Wayne...
Anyone hoping that Batman will be aiming to misbehave in Man of Steel 2 may want to temper their hopes a bit. EW spoke with the Firefly and Castle star about whether he'd take up the role if asked and Fillion said he probably wouldn't be the best choice.
"I wonder if my throat could take it," said Fillion when asked, referring to Christian Bale's gravelly voice in the Dark Knight trilogy. He continued on to say, "I think I'd make an excellent Bruce Wayne; I think I'd make a terrible Batman."
Fillion added that he hasn't been approached for the role and suggested that fans not try to push for certain actors (including him) to get the part if they want their way. "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," he said. "Probably the worst thing you could do if there's someone you want to be Batman is sort of rally."
