Reacher Star Alan Ritchson Wants To Replace Ben Affleck As The DCU’s Batman

During his interview with Fortress of Solitude, Alan Ritchson also gave his opinion on who was tougher between Jack Reacher and Batman, noting that his character of few means could stand tough against the billionaire with everything at his disposal. “Reacher would be harder to go down in a fight,” Ritchson said. “Just him and his toothbrush, and [Batman would] be like, ‘Damn, he’s holding on. It’s been 30 minutes.’ So, it would be fun.”

If Ritchson, who previously played Aquaman on “Smallville” and Hawk on “Titans,” is actually considered to play Batman in James Gunn’s and Peter Safran’s DCU, he certainly has the height to pull off the role. Former Batman Ben Affleck is 6-foot-2 1/4, while Ritchson stands at 6-foot-3. Oddly enough, Ritchson almost didn’t play Reacher over one minor (but important) detail. In author Lee Child’s Jack Reacher book series, the character is 6-foot-5. The production, fortunately, let the height differential between Ritchson and the fictional character slide.

By the way, Ritchson isn’t kidding about Reacher only having a toothbrush, as it’s one of the few possessions the former Army Military Police veteran has in “Reacher” Season 2. Based on “Bad Luck and Trouble” — Child’s 11th Jack Reacher book  — Reacher begins a new probe after the murder of former soldiers who were a part of his 110th Special Investigations Unit.

“Reacher” Season 2 is streaming on Amazon Prime.
