Actors That Should Take Over As the Batman
Steven Yeun may not have even crossed your mind when thinking who should play the Batman. Which, is one reason why he is a perfect fit for the role. A lot of times when speculating who should fill these blockbuster parts it’s easy to cast the part with a big name that everyone is familiar with. That familiarity can sometimes be to the detriment of the character. You want to see Bruce Wayne on screen and it can be hard to suspend disbelief when you see Ben Affleck portraying Batman rather than just seeing Batman (nothing against Ben Affleck).
One of the most important things to consider when determining who should dawn the cowl of the caped crusader is who would make a great Bruce Wayne. After all, Batman’s secret identity is such a major part of who the hero is.
It is Bruce that must make all of the moral choices and Bruce who hides behind the millionaire playboy facade to do all of Batman’s detective work. Steven Yeun would make an excellent Bruce. He has that perfect charismatic humor that makes him feel innocent, which would only serve to make him more deadly when he strikes.
While Steven Yeun hasn’t had the biggest Hollywood career he has more than proven himself as one of the fan-favorites with his breakout role on The Walking Dead. Where his character Glenn proved that even if he wasn’t the biggest of the group he was willing to lead and put himself in danger for the greater good.
Steven Yeun embodies the spirit of the Batman and the charisma of Bruce. Which is why he should most certainly be on Warner Bros. radar.
