what would happen if WB brought back Christian Bale and Ryan Reynolds for the Justice League franchise?

If WB could convince Bale to come back as Batman and Ryan Reynolds was brought in as Green Lantern… combined with the other cast members from the first one, do you think it would generate enough buzz to save the franchise? Maybe even throw in Zachary Levi’s Shazam if it ends up a blockbuster?

Hahaha Christian Bale would hate it so much, I’m in

YES and give us the characters we’ve grown to love from CW flash supergirl ARROW and give them the screen time. Think it would do really well

What would happen? The Internet would implode.

Nope. Release the Snyder Cut and we’re back in business. And we can all pretend Jared Leto never happened.

I Don’t really like Bale’s Batman. The voice is just too much. Also, the fact that he can’t turn his head is a bit weird. Bale just doesn’t seem like Bruce Wayne or Batman to me.

Nope. Hard pass from me. It won’t happen anyway.

I’d be more open to Reynolds return than Bale’s. Bale’s storyline ended. And Reynolds performance was that bad. It was the storyline. Bring him back, in a practical, non-CGId costume, and it would be okay.

But I’d they are going to go with the “older” Hal like they have hinted to, I’d love to see Nathan Fillion get the shot in the role.

I also think Bale has moved on. I don’t even see money nor Nolan bringing him back at this point. Also keep in mind, it’s been 7 years since Dark Knight Rises. It’ll be a couple of years before a movie with him in it could be put together. Bale is currently 45. Do we want a Batman older than that going forward? If they recast, the need to go younger to keep the character running. Even if he is an actor playing the Affleck version’s age, he needs to physically be younger so they can use him for several films. If you get Bale, you’ll probably have one movie and then have to recast again.
