Sideshow’s March Madness Round 1: Cast the Bat! Who Should Be the Next Batman?

I am vengeance.  I am the night.  I am BATMAN.

Admit it, who wouldn’t want to be the growling, scowling voice behind the cowl?  Batman is one of the most iconic characters in all of pop culture, but only a brave and bold few have actually stepped up to take on the mantle in movies, television, and more.

This year for March Madness, Sideshow wants to know- in the DC movie universe, who would you cast as the next Batman?
