Can any of these rising stars play Batman?
In a few short years, Warner Bros. will likely reboot the screen life of the legendary DC Comics character. Since Christian Bale won't be suiting up after "The Dark Knight Rises" next summer, who will step in to fill the cape? Here's a list of 15 candidates that we can imagine being asked to join the Bat brotherhood that also includes Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. Keep in mind, while some of our choices look too young now, they'll be age appropriate in 4 or 5 years. Who did we forget? Would you like to see any of our guesses play Batman? Vote early and vote often.
