5 Alternate Versions of Batman That Would Make Amazing Games

Miraculously, we live in an age where there are good Batman games (the Arkham series, in case you're the only person in the world super into Batman Forever ROMs). It took so long to get to the point where a regular Batman game could be good, we really didn't have time to consider the idea of making some of the weird alternate-Batman versions into amazing videogames as well. But now that the original Dark Knight's business has been settled, what other versions of Gotham's protector could use a next-gen franchise of their own? Here are the 5 that could be incredible.

 

1. Bizarro-Batman

The Character: Bizarro World is a strange, cube-shaped planet where everything is the exact opposite of what it is in our world. It's mostly known for Bizarro-Superman (or simply Bizarro), but he is far from the only interesting character from that twisted mirror of a world. Bizarro-Batman (aka The World's Worst Detective) is a moronic buffoon who has to solve cases and fight crime despite having less IQ than teeth.  His Futility Belt houses such useless stuff as chewed bubblegum and cigarette butts. A true underdog, he has to maintain peace and put a stop to the schemes of Bizarro-Joker, who, in a cruel twist of fate, is the only sane person in their world.

Article Who Should Have Actually Been Cast in Batman vs. Superman

By Andrew Bridgman / February 10, 2014

1. Lex Luthor: BRYAN CRANSTON

Who Should Have Actually Been Cast in Batman vs Superman

Bryan Cranston was long rumored for the part of Lex Luthor - the villainous antagonist to Superman. Despite the gravitas and sheer talent he would have brought to the role, they gave it to Jesse Eisenberg. Uh, we wanted HEISENBERG, Zack Snyder, not EISENBERG. Bryan Cranston has already proved he has the menacing glare, the acting ability, and the "looking cool with a shaved head"-ness that the role of Luthor requires.

 

2. Bruce Wayne / Batman: BRYAN CRANSTON

Who Should Have Actually Been Cast in Batman vs Superman

"I am the night"? Psh - try "I AM THE DANGER!" Bryan Cranston could act circles around Ben "Gigli" Affleck. Even when the two shared scenes in Argo, it became clear that Affleck was desperately out of his league next to the Cran-man. Bryan Cranston as Walter White was pretty much Batman already - the voice, the brutal doling out of justice, and - hell - he even had his own Robin in Jesse Pinkman. The true dark knight is Bryan Cranston.

By Andrew Bridgman / January 31, 2014

It was just announced that Jesse Eisenberg - best known for portraying Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network - has been cast as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. This casting could not be better - since Mark Zuckerberg and Lex Luthor are already pretty much the same person.
