Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston has received the role of the bald headed baddie.

We previously wrote in our shortlist of Batman choices Cranston could be one of three hot choices. Mark Strong was also tipped to secure the role and on our list too.

Funny enough, in 2001, Ben took to an interview to say “I am not Batman.” The production team are the same studios that produced the Green Lantern. They cast sweet-looking Ryan Reynolds, a then Hollywood luvvie, into the role. The film was a massive flop soon after.
