12 Actors Who Might Have Been Batman

In a world of caped crusaders, there is only one Dark Knight. For nearly 80 years, Batman has been fighting crime in Gotham City, using his unrivaled deductive skills and physical prowess to bring justice to the city's dark streets. But Batman is more than just a superhero - he's also a symbol of hope for those who have lost their way. In a post-Superman world, Batman represents the best that we can be - even in the face of great adversity. He is proof that anyone can make a difference, no matter how dark their past may be. So put on your cape and cowl and join the fight - because Gotham needs its hero now more than ever.

Nicholas Hoult is no stranger to the world of superheroes, having played the Beast in X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past. However, he almost took on the role of another famous comic book character: Batman. Hoult was reportedly in talks to play the caped crusader in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel, but the part ultimately went to Ben Affleck. Hoult isn't the only actor who was considered for the role; other contenders included Josh Brolin and Joe Manganiello. In the end, Snyder decided to go with an older actor to play Bruce Wayne, and Hoult missed out on the chance to don the iconic Batsuit.
