Winston Duke Wants to Play Batman in James Gunn’s DCU (And We Want It Too)

An MCU star is ready to cross the streams into James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new DCU. Black Panther‘s Winston Duke revealed he’d like to play Batman in the upcoming DCU movie, Batman: The Brave and the Bold. We haven’t heard too much about this Andy Muschietti-directed film yet, but we’re more than willing to start the campaign for this Batman casting.

When asked about playing Batman, Duke shared the following with Slash Film, “Listen, man, can you start that [campaign]? [Laughs] I would say I challenge you to get on all these socials and push for me. Get your community. I would love to. I would love to do that as Batman. I’d love any opportunity to explore new characters, to change narratives around some of these entrenched ideas of how these characters are supposed to look, sound, and perform. I’m all for it.”

Duke, of course, has voiced Bruce Wayne/Batman in the podcast Batman Unburied. Casting Winston Duke as Batman would be perfect for the DCU and for us. Ten out of ten, no notes. And we’d love to see Winston Duke’s Batman interact with David Corenswet’s Superman. Do the right thing, James Gunn.
