British actors Christian Bale and Hugh Dancy are in the running for the role of Batman in Hollywood's latest movie about the Caped Crusader.

Casting for the fifth Batman film - Batman: the Frightening or the much cooler sounding Batman: Intimidation - is reported to be underway. I have no idea who Hugh Dancy is but he looks a bit whispy-whispy to play the Bat. The last thing we need is another dandy ŕ la Val Kilmer or George Clooney.

Christian Bale would make an astonishing Batman. I have not seen American Psycho as it was based on the Flea's sole book-burning nominee. Bale was wonderfully sinister in Equilibrium, however, so I have no trouble believing he made a convincing psycho and would do so again as the Batman.

Well, that's more of him than I ever needed to see...

Yeah. That's 5 minutes and a game misconduct for unnecessary beefcake, Nick...

Perhaps... and I will accept my five-minute penalty if it means no more of the ludicrous rubber-nipple action of the recent Batman costumes.

All must link to the Flea! And all must have prizes!

And another thing... this only gives me more ideas for the new-look Flea buttons on the way.

This sure caught *my* eye.

But really, what's so wrong with body hair? I like it. In the right places. In moderate amounts.

Well, now I'm scared.

It could be the hairless thing went with the psycho thing. I can only speculate as I have not seen the film. Though I seem to remember a proto-metrosexual volume of hygiene product in the character as portrayed in the novel. That and the true horror of Hewey Lewis and the News.
