Rumor: Warner Bros Eyeing ‘Game of Thrones’ Star For ‘The Batman’

THE BATMAN IS COMING!

After many different changes to production and unstoppable rumors, The Batman is on track to start filming next summer which means, new rumors.  Director Matt Reeves has been meeting with actors to play Bruce Wayne/Batman, but a name just came out that nobody expected.

Rumors out of Warner Bros. is that the studio is interested in making Game of Thrones star, Kit Harington (Jon Snow), play the Dark Knight.  According to sources inside the studio, Warner Bros. requested a digital mock-up of what Harington would look like in the Batsuit as the new Batman.

Harington is definitely younger than Ben Affleck at 31 years of age and could fit the mold (age-wise) that Reeves is looking for, but there is one issue; Harington stands at 5’8″ tall.  Now before you go crazy, Batfans, don’t forget that Michael Keaton is only 5’9″ tall, so nothing some platform Batboots can’t fix.

Nothing has been solidified or mentioned by Warner Bros or Matt Reeves yet so this is just a rumor…for now.
