What Guys Wish 'Fifty Shades' Was Really About

What do you think? Sequel potential?

When author E.L. James first talked casting for "Fifty Shades Of Grey," fans had a lot of opinions on who should play Christian Grey. 

Some felt passionately that Christian Bale should be the lead. Hmm, we wonder why? Could it be because he shares the same name as the character? 

Nope, it's something else. 

Does the character of Christian Grey seem a bit familiar?

Because he's got an awful lot in common with Bruce Wayne, aka Batman. In fact, some people think they're the same guy.

In "Fifty Shades," Jamie Dornan played a mysterious, intense, billionaire playboy who likes to fly and is hiding a dark secret. 

In the "Batman" films, Christian Bale played a mysterious, intense, billionaire playboy who likes to fly and is hiding a dark secret.

Yep.

If Jamie Dornan decides not to act in the sequel, we think Christian Bale as Batman would make the perfect replacement.

But who would Anastasia choose? We think she'd fall in love with Bruce Wayne/Batman because he's hot, but also a gentleman.



Is this Batman version a real possibility? Unlikely. But we do love this mashup video of Batman and "Fifty Shades."
