Richard Armitage And Why He Should Be Considered To Play ‘Batman’

Riichard Armitage and why he should be considered to play Batman.

5 August, 2013

To most Americans, Richard Armitage is not a name that they recognize, but rumor has it, he is being considered as the next Batman. Why should he be in serious contention to play the dark knight? Richard Armitage is a British actor who is well known and very much liked by audiences in England and those who follow period dramas.

Richard is 41, so he fits the bill as far as age is concerned. He definitely fits the bill with his looks, he is 6’2″, has a deep, rich voice, and has the acting ability to play anything he wants. Heck, he just finished playing a dwarf. Yes, at 6’2″. Peter Jackson gave him the job of dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit trilogy and he didn’t go unnoticed.

Richard is a theater trained actor, as are many of the Brits. He has had stints in several popular period dramas. His career took off in Britain when he was cast as the romantic hero Mr. Thornton in North And South. From there, he has played different roles within the genre most notably the sexy Guy of Gisborne in Robin Hood for the BBC. He also became very popular for his performances in The Vicar Of Dibley and Spook in which he played spy agent Lucas North.
