5. Johnny Depp
You’re kidding. Please tell me this is a joke. Johnny Depp was considered to play Batman? Well thank the stars that he didn’t get the part! Again, Depp is a great actor at the roles he does – seemingly insane characters that grow endearing throughout the course of their respective films (i.e., Captain Jack Sparrow). That persona would not work for the Dark Knight. Along with Tom Hanks, he was in the running to play Bruce Wayne in Batman Forever. Just imagine how much poorer the film would’ve performed if Johnny Depp was under the cape and cowl. Dancing with the devil, indeed.
