Oh. Em. Gee. Superman and Batman are set to share the screen in “Man Of Steel 2″! While Henry Cavill is all about donning that Super suit for another round, the role of Batman has yet to be filled. Let us offer up some dashing + pro-social choices…
+ Ian Somerhalder

Ian Somerhalder has the whole good boy/bad boy vibe that Batman has always been known for. Just imagine those baby blues piercing through a Batman mask. While Batman is gonna tell Superman to suck it (or the other way around) in 2015’s “Man Of Steel 2,” Ian’s Plastic Straws Can Suck It campaign encourages people to save Mother Earth by doing away with non-recyclable straws.

Michael B. Jordan is soon to jump on everyone’s radar in “Fruitvale Station,” a movie chronicling the last day of a young man’s life before he was killed by a Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer. The eye-opening film may just earn him an Oscar nod, so playing Batman is surely a possibility. I mean, really, the possibilities for this guy are endless!
+ Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has the acting chops for the role, and he already has a Batman connection given his role in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Batman is all about cleaning up Gotham City, while JGL is all about cleaning up your shopping cart. He recently Tweeted about Buycott, an app that lets users scan any item in their grocery carts to see its corporate family tree as well as the causes its makers do or do not support. Very cunning, JGL, very cunning indeed.
+ Ryan Gosling

He did the deep, dark thing pretty well in “Drive,” so we could totally see Ryan Gosling as the next, grizzly voiced Batman. Plus his hipster good looks would provide a nice contrast to Henry Cavill’s poster-boy charm. If Zack Snyder really wants to hipster this movie up, he could make it center around Ryan Gosling’s passion for rescuing pregnant pigs. The actor recently wrote a letter on behalf of Farm Sanctuary and the Humane Society International, calling on his fellow Canadians to stop the pork industry from using gestation crates — boxes that pregnant pigs are kept in for months, will little room to move.
+ Channing Tatum
Tell me you don’t wanna see Channing Tatum in superhero spandex! If there were ever a man built to play Batman, it’s this guy. When it comes to real life heroism, Channing is all about saving the rainforest. He and his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, helped raise millions for the Rainforest Foundation.
