Colin Farrell On Whether He Would Consider Playing BATMAN For The Reboot

While doing his press rounds for Total Recall, actor Colin Farrell was asked about almost being cast as Bruce Wayne in the doomed Batman Vs. Superman as well as if he would take on the role now that Christopher Nolan's trilogy is done.


The Total Recall ball is rolling with the cast doing numerous interviews for the premieres. While talking with IGN Colin Farrell was reminded of how close he was to being The Dark Knight in the canceled superhero team up film Batman Vs. Superman. He also touched on whether or not he would even consider taking on the role of Batman again as well. Check out what he had to say in the video below.


On the possibility of playing Batman:

"The kid part of me would say 'Yeah for sure'. But Christian did such a brilliant brilliant job, I'm not saying I've got the call, but I'm not sure if it's something I'd be interested in. I don't know if I'm brave enough to know I am walking in to the lion's den of being compared to Christian in that role. Life might be to short for me to have those concerns. And I just love what Christian did so much, and I love that trilogy so much."


While you may not be able to see Colin Farrell as Batman you can catch Christian Bale in the role In The Dark Knight Rises along with Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman in theaters NOW!!!!
