@ObiWanShinobi When I spoke of the accent I was thinking some form of a Rhode Island, Jersey/New York kind of beefy accent that can be construed as someone intimidating. But as I said in my comment before, stranger things have happened. We don't know that he doesn't have the looks or the chops until he proves himself. I wasn't promoting the idea of him as Robin/Nightwing but I've been proven wrong on so many occasions judging a book by the cover that I'm open to the idea. The track record, especially for Nolan and Snyder cast movies has been remarkable in terms of finding the actors with the right balance. They see it in them before we do.

When people talk about this film being overcrowded they seem to forget that we had an Avengers movie a couple years ago that they seem to love and defend to the death. You brought up X-Men, which I thought was just okay. What is the Justice League if not an ensemble film full of heroes from the DCU? As you said, I don't fear the film being crowded. What it truly comes down to is impeccable writing and great pacing throughout. I don't really have any doubts when it comes to this or the next batch of films coming from the WB/DC house.
I've said it once and I'll say it again, stranger things have happened involving the casting of certain characters in these movies. More often than not in recent years the gambles have paid off. We know of his nationality and already have preconceived notions of how his portrayal would ultimately turn out. We've got a Brit playing Superman. A Brit played Batman in the Nolan trilogy. We've had an American play Sherlock Holmes quite successfully. And in terms of Radcliffe's "accent", with work if he's so determined to play this role I'm certain he'd dedicate himself to losing that accent or turning it into a variation of an American accent. Aaron Taylor-Johnson comes to mind as well. And, none of this is to say he'd be my first choice or idea when it comes to this role. But I wouldn't be opposed if he can convert himself into an action hero. Dick Grayson/Nightwing would be perfect for him if not Tim. I just don't think he'd have the demeanor for Jason Todd who would ultimately be Red Hood should that be the role eventually up for grabs.

@ejk1 You too have brought up some interesting ideas. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing something like the Hush arc brought to screen. Hugo Strange would also be a great addition to the film universe. If all is played right it's almost limitless what they can do with all the DC films in this universe.

@cvntstop I have a feeling they will. I believe that they're going for all around quality. People feel like there is a lot that is being thrown together when we really don't know what's going on yet. What should be considered is the fact that they are taking their time with these projects. These aren't rush jobs.
@ObiWanShinobi And yes, when DC announced that they were going forward with their shared universe with WB I felt a slight shift in tide for the coming years in regard to this comic genre of film. The possibilities for what they can do are almost limitless. They just need to be handled with care.
@ObiWanShinobi I think we're headed in that direction for sure.

The more I think of him as Aquaman it may be the only way I'd ever want to see the character.
@cvntstop Sorry to keep ranting but it's just another thought...as I said about Man of Steel, love it or hate it...visually it had done things that hadn't been done or attempted to such scale before in these sort of comic book films, Marvel and DC. I believe that fact is sorely overlooked but it was a visual accomplishment. And the detail was incredible regardless to what most felt about it. It was one of the reasons why I loved the film regardless of its flaws. It gave us just as much visually as it had conceptually when reimagining the world that a Superman fits.
