Confession: I don't care about superheroes. Not one teensy weensy bit. I mean, sure, I can work up a mild interest in the genre for the sake of my son or whatever, but I've never given a second (or first) thought as to who might play Batman/Superman/Spider-Man/Whoeverelseman ... until now. Because on the short list to play the Caped Crusader in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman are -- check this out! -- Ryan Gosling and Joe Manganiello. That's right: Either Ryan Gosling or Joe Manganiello will be wearing tights on the big screen in the near future. Swoooooon!! (In case you're wondering, rumor has it director Zack Snyder wants John Hamm as Superman.)
Unfortunately, Gosling and Manganiello aren't the only two actors reportedly in the running ...
Josh Brolin, Richard Armitage (The Hobbit), Matthew Goode (The Watchman), and Max Martini (Pacific Rim). But they're the only two actors we care about ... right? The big question now, of course, is WHICH super hot hottie should win the role. Holy Tough Choice, Batman!
I honestly don't know if I could make this particular call. Manganiello and Gosling are equally sexy, they're just completely different types of sexy. So, let's start by figuring out which type of sexy Batman should be: Raw, dangerous werewolf sexy? Or Hey girl, I might be James Dean reincarnated sexy?
Hmmm. Y'all know I love myself some True Blood, but ... I'm leaning towards Alexander Skarsgard Ryan Gosling!! (Seriously, why NOT Alexander Skarsgard??)
Do you think Joe Manganiello or Ryan Gosling would make a better Batman?
