Soon after James Gunn announced that they were working on The Brave and The Bold, the fans started speculating about who would be the best choice.

The fans believe that he has the right build and belongs to the accurate age group needed for DCU’s Batman.

Over the years, we have seen some of the greatest stars like Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, and Robert Pattinson portray the Dark Knight on-screen. It looks like the Reacher fame Alan Ritchson can be the probable name to continue the legacy of the character. Addressing the viral fan casting, the Fast X star has also admitted that he would love to play the role.

Alan Ritchson admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that he would love to play a new iteration of Batman. He explained that he has always been fascinated by Batman’s intelligence and his massive arsenal of impressive weapons and expensive vehicles. He would love to play Bruce Wayne in this new universe alongside David Corenswet.

“I would love to play Batman, there, I said it! Okay I’ll shout it from the rooftops, ‘I want to be Bruce Wayne!’… Here’s the thing about Batman – you know what his superpower is? Intelligence: The dude is the smartest superhero there is. He’s inventive and he’s got all the gadgets stuff, but he’s super smart. I want to be that guy and also to have like a cave with hypercars, sports cars, and awesome motorcycles.”

There are several reasons why the fans think Alan Ritchson can be the perfect choice to don the cape of the Dark Knight. While he possesses the required age and the physique for the role, he also has the superhero experience. He first rose to prominence with his role of Aquaman in the DC show, Smallville. He then also returned to play Hawk in DC’s Titans TV Series.

Recently, the 41-year-old actor was also spotted in a photo with his The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare co-star and former DC superstar Henry Cavill. The fans have conquered the internet to express their support for Alan Ritchson.

Alan Ritchson’s latest photo with Henry Cavill has taken over the internet and has once again led the fans to argue if he would be the perfect choice. The majority of the fans have seemed to agree that he can be ideal for pulling off a slightly older Batman required for the upcoming project.

However, it should also be noted that some other prominent names like Jensen Ackles and Jake Gyllenhaal are also favorites for the role. While Ackles has been fan cast in the role for ages, Gyllenhaal has recently admitted that he lost the role to Christian Bale for Christopher Nolan’s trilogy and would love to return.

Alan Ritchson will be seen alongside Henry Cavill in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming spy action comedy, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. It is set to be released on April 19, 2024.
