Ethan Hawke Up For Batman Role In Batman Vs. Superman? It Wouldn’t Be His First Shot At Batman.
However, when rumors surfaced that Warner Bros. was actually looking for an actor in his late thirties or early forties to play an older Batman, the casting rumors rapidly changed. The latest rumor suggests that Ethan Hawke could be up for the Batman role or at least some role in Batman Vs. Superman.
What is a little more surprising is that the site’s source also indicated that Hawke might be up for the Batman role. Ethan Hawke is 42 years old, so he would fit the age range that Warner Bros. is reportedly seeking for the role.
While we might be tempted to pass on this rumor, given all the various actors being tied to the Batman role, there is one other thing that makes us think there could be something to this story. In an interview with Details Magazine back in 2011, Ethan Hawk revealed that he previously was offered the Batman role, but he turned it down, which he later regretted doing so. Hawke said, “Now I wish I’d done it, because I could have used it to do other things.”
Could Ethan Hawke be getting a second chance at Batman?
