Nathan Fillion - Nathan Fillion: 'I Think I'd Make A Terrible Batman'
Actor Nathan Fillion has ruled out caping up as Batman in the Man Of Steel sequel, despite topping comic book fans' wishlists as the man they'd like to take over from Christian Bale.
The Saving Private Ryan star insists he has not been approached about the role and does not believe he is a good fit anyway.
He says, "I think I'd make an excellent Bruce Wayne; I think I'd make a terrible Batman."
Fillion also cautions fans about rallying for their favourite actor to play a certain role, adding, "If you wanted to see a particular person as Batman, I think one of the worst things you could do is shove it down someone's throat as far as the new director of Batman or the new producers of Batman. Probably the worst thing you could do if there's someone you want to be Batman is sort of rally."
Speculation about the new Batman began when Man of Steel director Zack Snyder revealed his sequel would feature Superman and the Caped Crusader.
Bale portrayed Batman in director Christoper Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, but he has made it clear he won't be donning the suit again.
