This is Scott Adkin's Batman audition. Appparantly he was one of the guys rumored to be playing Batman. What do you think of this? He is not the tallest but is by no means actually short. And he looks like Bruce Wayne and is an actual martial artist with a superhuman like body.

What's the most important part however is the acting skills.

How do you think he'd have been?

I'd prefer him over that Twilight guy.

He ain't a good actor that's the issue.

His acting won't matter.

All we need is feats.

I've always been impressed with his martial arts and choreography skills, but not his acting.

Adkins can probably pull off a Batman, but not Bruce Wayne.

On a side note, I'm a little disappointed that Affleck won't be coming back as Batman. I actually liked him in the role. It's too bad. Oh well, hopefully someone better will take his place. My preference would be Jensen Ackles, though I'd rather see him as Hal Jordan.

He played Barakapool too. I’d be fine with his second chance.

He would be a better Kraven.

People only want him cause he kinda looks like Batman and is a good martial artist. But, I'd rather someone who can actually act. It's why I don't take fan castings seriously.

I honestly would have to think hard about even hiring him for a CW role.

He perfectly fits the look, stunt, etc parts. Except for the acting part. Doubt a high budget and mighty studio like Warner Bros would take someone like Scott Adkins. Though you never know. When ledger was hired everyone thought he would suck, when gal gadot was hired everyone thought she would suck. You never know. But highly unlikely Adkins would get a role of such magnitude. Im not even sure that Afflec would not play.

Ledger was definitely a much better actor than Adkins. Gadot apparently killed her audtion. Adkins gave us an audition on level with an average CW actor. There's no way he gets the part beyond stunt work.

I'm stumped as to why people think his martial arts prowess matters? Its the 21st century. Hollywood can make any actor look like they can fight. Plus Batman's fighting style is more grounded and he doesn't utilize high flying kicks. Maybe a Nightwing, but Adkins is too old.

I like Scott Adkins. But I don't think he has what it takes to play Bruce Wayne.

No, special effects and stunt work could make anyone even us dorks look like superhuman badasses. I love martial arts movies, but in terms of actual filmmaking it’s a bit overrated.

I don't think he'd be a bad choice. Sure, it's a bit rough as it is now, but with some practice, he looks like he could nail it. Hell, if Ezra Miller could somehow get cast as the Flash and Gal Gadot could somehow get the Wonder Woman role despite being easily the weakest part of her own goddamn film, I don't see why Adkins couldn't get cast. Unlike Affleck, he won't be needing a voice modulator either.

Gadot was apparently being screen-tested based on her chemistry with Affleck (which is mind-boggling) and Patty Jenkins reportedly wasn't happy with the choice but had to use her because Snyder was calling the shots back then.
