No matter how much you might like it to happen, Nathan Fillion does not want to be Batman. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said he doesn’t think he’s the man for the role.
“I wonder if my throat could take it,” he said, joking that he doesn’t believe he has the vocal stamina to mimic Batman’s gravelly voice. “I think I’d make an excellent Bruce Wayne; I think I’d make a terrible Batman.”
And before you start a campaign and have everyone sending in plastic bats wearing browncoats to the powers that be, consider this piece of advice from Fillion.
“If you wanted to see a particular person as Batman, I think one of the worst things you could do is shove it down someone’s throat as far as the new director of Batman or the new producers of Batman. Probably the worst thing you could do if there’s someone you want to be Batman is sort of rally.”
So, put down the plastic bat and continue about your daily business.
