Karl Urban Would Play Batman If Offered

Karl Urban has responded to the questions about whether he would portray Batman – confirming that he’s open to the role.

Karl Urban will take the opportunity to portray Batman in the planned Matt Reeves standalone movie if the opportunity arises for him. The 45-year-old actor is no stranger to the Superhero universe having been in Thor: Ragnarok in 2017. Also, back in 2012 he took on the protagonist role in Dredd. It’s rumored that he could reprise his role in the much-anticipated Dredd sequel which would return in the form of a TV show.

If he were to take on the role of Batman, he would join the prestigious group of actors to have played the DC Superhero. These actors include: Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, Val Kilmer, Adam West & Micheal Keaton.

Urban recently spoke to JoBlo regarding his newest movie and spoke about whether we would ever see him play Batman, something he seems open to doing. Read what he said below: 

“Oh, really? Wow. I don’t know. I haven’t really contemplated that. Usually the way the process works for me is I get sent projects, sent scripts and I read them, meet with the filmmakers and really on that basis choose to get involved. As far as Batman goes, I guess my favorite Batman movie was THE DARK KNIGHT. Chris Nolan is just an extraordinary director and I thought Christian Bale was a fantastic Batman and obviously with such talent like Heath Ledger that was the perfect comic book movie right there…So, I don’t know, I’m open to any and all opportunities.”

At the moment it’s unlikely that we will see him portray Batman, with Jake Gyllenhaal supposedly top of the list of actors Warner Bros want. It’s looking, though, that should Gyllenhaal not do it, that Karl Urban could easily be next in line, even with a busy schedule ahead of him.
