By BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014
Batman: The Caped Crusader


Matthew Vaughn-Director


Matthew, proving his worth with X-Men: First Class and Kick Ass, can definitely give Batman the right amount of flavor and zest to the World’s Greatest Detective and his amazing mythos.

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade -Writers


Very excellent writers who penned some of the James Bond films, including a personal favorite, Skyfall. They can balance story and character development very well, something this film would very much need.

Plot Synopsis


As Batman, the GCPD and Nightwing navigate Two-Face and Penguin’s war, corruption within the GCPD, and try to take the Joker down for his appalling crimes, Batman uncovers Riddler’s intent to take over Gotham, and must solve Riddler’s riddles, before Gotham City destroys itself in the process.





While we are excited to see Batffleck, this is a separate universe. So we chose Richard Armitage. He has a lot of great work under his belt, and can give Batman the right amount of gravitas and depth, and Bruce Wayne the right amount of charm.




While traditionally British, Waltz will break away from that mold a tad, and be more like the Earth One version, though he will still keep Alfred’s sarcastic, mesmerizing charm, but also make the character his own.




As a writer of the Gotham Gazette, Vicki will be Bruce Wayne’s love interest for this film. To play Vicki, we chose Jennifer Lawrence. She can give Vicki the right amount of sex appeal, but also is very intelligent and will be more than just a love interest, but someone who feels like she is there for the plot and is integral to Bruce Wayne and his life.




Now, before you start grabbing your pitchforks and torches or start banging on your keyboards, hear us out. In CBM’s, most of the characters are white and male. So why not spice it up a bit? In this version Nightwing’s name is Abigail Grayson, and not to much will change, other than the fact that Nightwing is a female, and intimate relationships she has will obviously be altered.




Right? How fucking original. Well if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Bryan is a fantastic actor with a lot to give this fantastic franchise. Not only does he sport the Gordon-Stache very well in the first two seasons of Breaking Bad(great show, by the way), but he’s a phenomenal, Golden Globe and Emmy winning actor.




If you have seen the show ‘Brooklyn 99’ you will know that Fumero plays the role of a detective trying to prove herself to others. This will fit perfectly because it will add a dynamic between her and Commissioner Gordon as she tries to prove herself to him as he tests her metal, and stands against the corruption in the GCPD.




William is a phenomenal actor who can truly portray Joker’s sadistic, heartless nature. Not only does he look like the comic Joker, slicked hair and everything, but also has a great smile. Joker needs to be a crazy, chills down your spine type guy, and we believe Fichtner can deliver this performance.




We chose Edgerton as Bullock because he comes off as a very authoritative figure. In this version he will be very similar to his Earth One counterpart, as a honest cop who comes to Gotham, continuing his law enforcement career after he was an over glorified Hollywood personality that had a reality cop tv show. As he comes to Gotham, he is appalled by Gotham’s corruption, but later feeds into the everlasting crime infestation.




Two-Face struggles with his dual personality, and is always on the edge, balancing his humanity and evil intentions. So we chose Fassbender. He is a phenomenal actor, and has proven multiple times that he can give us a convincing villain, but also a human side.




Riddler is genius, crazy, riddle obsessed and needs an actor to not only portray this, but convince us he can do this. We chose DiCaprio. He has a lot of crucial, critically acclaimed performances under his belt, and can really emulate the insanity that is the Ridler.




We chose Stevenson as Penguin because he can come off as a very intimidating person in his roles. This will help him play the role of a mobster trying to run Gotham. Also he’s role as The Punisher has shown that he can be a merciless character.

Daddario playing a dude?

Hmmm...seems legit.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 7:55 PM
Thanks for reading. Hit the big red glove if you like it!
HOTSHOT - 3/1/2014, 7:56 PM
HURR DURR, DADDARIO CAN'T PLAY NIGHTWING CUZ SHE A BABE N GIRLS CANT ACT N NIGHTWING IS A MAN N STUFF. DIS IS GEY.

Seriously though, good casting, aside from Daddario as nightwing: JGL,

and Stevenson as Penguin: Patton Oswalt.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 8:00 PM
WTF JD?
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 8:01 PM
He is already looking at Daddario's sorry.
MasterShake - 3/1/2014, 8:05 PM
lol what are you dr doom
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 8:12 PM
Who, me? No,



and now,

erth2drew - 3/1/2014, 8:12 PM
not horible
sameoldthing - 3/1/2014, 8:14 PM
No probs with any cast but Stevenson.
He's a real big dude...so opposite of the Penguin it's not funny.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 8:17 PM
Its called camera shots. He can gain weight and look what they did with the Hobbit's. They can make people look different, y'know.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 8:17 PM
But thanks for reading!
l0rdleg0las - 3/1/2014, 8:36 PM
Well as much as I would love to see Alexandra in a skin tight suit I don't like the choice for Nightwing. I'm talking zipper snapping awesomeness seeing her in the suit but, I really hate the altering of characters to make everything nice a PC and get everyone involved. If race and gender or even sexual orientation are that big of a deal, how about making new characters that cover those bases rather than [frick]ing up established characters.(looking at you FOX)

Aside from the Daddario idea, I like the majority of the cast. I just think Lawrence might be too young to play Vicky Vale across from Armitage.

BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 8:51 PM
Fair enough l0rd. The thing is though, it is hard to make new characters and have audiences love them. I made an article a while back, discussing casting:\

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fan_fic/news/?a=94618#comments


Jacky and I tackled race, very similar to gender. Other than the whole relationship Nightwing has with Starfire, not much can really attribute to Nigthwing's gender. To me, unless it affect's the character so much in their history or attributes, it doesn't matter to much. And Vale is usaully 10-15 years younger than Bruce anyway, so it makes sense.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 8:52 PM
And again, thanks for reading.
SonGoku - 3/1/2014, 9:06 PM
I'm guessing Daddario as Nightwing was Pasto's idea.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/1/2014, 9:29 PM
Actually, no. It was mine. I said it'd be a good idea if Alex was Nightwing, he said he wanted to do a fancast and give me credit. I said no, lets do one together, since I had an idea to do one for a while. But thanks for reading!
DEVLIN712 - 3/2/2014, 2:04 AM
There will never be a Pasto fan cast without Daddario
MightyZeus - 3/2/2014, 2:45 AM
I like the cast. I think it's okay.
Buu - 3/2/2014, 4:32 AM
Abigail Grayson? I like it. It's different. DiCaprio as Riddler would be great too.
DrunkenNukem - 3/2/2014, 5:24 AM
I would love to see Thorin as Batman...i love that guy he is awsome...


Im not quite agreed with the Ray Stevenson as penguin...he is way way tall for penguin...he could work for Azrael or Hush..

didnt Nolan offered the riddler´s role to Di Caprio before TDKR started to shoot??
flash23 - 3/2/2014, 6:24 AM
I like everything but Stevenson, he's way too big, my choices are Brad Dourif if going the Gotham born Penguin or Stephen Graham if doing the British born Penguin
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 8:13 AM
Thanks Batmaniac, flash everyone else. And yes Duke. I actually got the idea for DiCaprio from hearing about WB asking Nolan to make DiCaprio the riddler. And devlin, BlackJack, the funny part is is that it was my idea, that's what spawned this whole fancast. But he did come up with the name.
WelcomeBackFrank - 3/2/2014, 8:20 AM
Gender-switching Nightwing? Screw that.

Gosh, am I sick of that. Just make the characters the characters; follow the source material. I know this is a fan-fic but I am really sick of Hollywood thinking they know better than the fans and pulling stupid stunts like that. Just show us what we want to see or get out.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 8:30 AM
First, thanks for reading! And second, I wanted some diversity. The biggest issue I had was 2 females(if I went with Dick as a male), one being white the other hispanic. It's called diversity. I think it doesn't change the character, only the outward appeareance. Besides Dick's sensual relations, and his taking of the Batman mantle, not much would be changed.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 8:44 AM
No, its true. Ask him, lol. I had this idea on the backburner as well as a couple editorials, and other fan-casts. I wanted to do a Batman fan-cast with Arimtage and Waltz, and I was either going to cast Michael B. Jordan or Alexandra Daddraio as Nightwing, and Jennifer Lawrence as Vicki Vale. The rest was in planning and in the air.
Pasto - 3/2/2014, 8:55 AM
Only characters I picked where Penguin, Bullock, and Renee Montoya. BH did the rest.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 9:01 AM
Well, you did make the images, man. Don't put you're work down to much man. And he also formatted, when I was gone.
AlphaMasterFlex - 3/2/2014, 11:50 AM
Daddrio is my boyfriend when we experiment he does the penetrating of my inner ear canal and nostrils
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 11:51 AM
Uhm, okay. No she isn't, she is mine, but thanks for the like and comment!
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 11:54 AM
Thanks Benedtict Eggs, and Jacky.
TheRealistStarLord - 3/2/2014, 11:56 AM
I like the rest except penguin, bullock and Renee .
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 11:57 AM
Why's that, Star-Lord?
Pasto - 3/2/2014, 3:15 PM
He doesn't like 'em cause I picked 'em. He's a troll
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 3:32 PM
Oh, I see.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 3:33 PM
Don't be a douche, bro.
cipher - 3/2/2014, 3:36 PM
Hahahahahahahahaha, I love how I'm just scrolling down, and it goes- Armitage= Batman, Waltz= Alf, Lawrence= Vicki, ALEXANDRA!!. It's just so random..

Like walking down the street and suddenly getting smacked in the face by a dildo swung by a T-Rex.

I mean, how the f*ck are his arms even long enough?
BatManHeisenberg - 3/2/2014, 3:38 PM
Well, thanks for reading cipher!
