While fans may have some harsh criticisms for director Zack Snyder, there’s no denying that the filmmaker has an eye for casting. From Gal Gadot to Ben Affleck and Ezra Miller, he has a tendency to think outside the box in terms of his casting, and more often than not in his films, fans generally have little to complain about in that department.
Another brilliant bit of casting came in Batman v Superman. In those opening credits of the film, we saw a re-enactment of Bruce Wayne’s parents getting killed, and the man playing Thomas Wayne was none other than Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
It was a move that, intentionally or not, helped set things up for things to come. As we know, Flashpoint is a movie that’s in the works, and in that storyline, it’s Thomas Wayne who becomes the Caped Crusader. For months now, fans have been stoked by the fact that we may very well get Morgan as Batman in that film, and while at Walker Stalker Con in New Jersey, Morgan teased an eventual DCEU appearance, saying:
“There’s a role in the DC Universe I’ve got my eye on.”
We know this is something that fans have been discussing for a long time, but still, it’s hard not to get excited at seeing Morgan play yet another broken man on the big screen.
