The rumors are true: Batman is back, and this time he’s taken a liking to your favorite heart-shaped boxster. After five years and nine films (10 if you don’t count the animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold), the Batman franchise is finally coming to an end. At least, it will if Warner Bros. decides to go down this route, and in the worst-case scenario, it could mean the death of the character.

While we’re certainly sad to see Batman’s twilight years, it’s important to remember that it’s not yet decided whether or not the Dark Knight will survive this latest transition. With a little bit of prep work and research, we can ensure that we don’t make the same mistakes as before and that we do our best to create an iconic film that will live on for years to come.

Get Inspired

Since the rumors about a possible resurrection of Batman surfaced in 2014, many fans have been busy planning their approach to the role. Some have wanted to play it cool and maintain their natural charisma, while others have gone the extra mile and tried to look more like Batman than anybody has ever tried to look like a superhero before. Regardless of which approach you choose, it’s important that you find a way to tap into the character’s dark and brooding nature and that you don’t become too relaxed or comfortable in the role.

Visit The Set

If you’re lucky enough to get a chance to visit the set of a big-budget Hollywood film, then it’s more than likely that you’ll get an opportunity to see the actual Batman outfit in all its glory. Having a peek at what the movie stars are actually wearing can help give you a better sense of how the character looks, and it can also help you find the right fit for the part. If you’ve got a fair bit of experience in fashion, you might even get a chance to assist the costume designer in the creation of the Batman costume. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even get a small role as an extra in the film and can pretend that you’re helping Batman save the city. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even get a chance to shine in the film as Batman. Who knows?

Don’t Forget The Basics

Although it’s wonderful to dream about playing the lead in a major motion picture, the reality is that most actors would kill to get the part, and you’re probably not going to be one of them. To guarantee yourself a role as an extra or a bit part, you need to make sure that you know someone who knows someone who can get you on the crew list for the shoot. Even then, it’s not going to be easy because the person you need to speak to will most likely be busy with other projects. So don’t give up hope just yet. There are ways to make it happen, but you have to be patient.

Speak To The Director

If you’re lucky enough to get a chance to talk to the director of the film, then you’ve got a chance to set the story and make suggestions about the character. After all, you know more about the character than anyone else and have a good idea of how to make him or her more realistic and relatable to modern audiences. The relationship that you develop with the director can also prove invaluable in helping you get the part. If the director likes your ideas, then you’ve got a chance to earn yourself a bit part in the film. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even end up with a role that’s a bit bigger than you imagined.

Research The Character

If you’re portraying a real-life superhero in the movies, then it’s essential that you do your homework and familiarize yourself with as much information as possible. Luckily, the internet makes this kind of information easily accessible, and with a little bit of research, you can tell whether or not you’re fit for the role. To begin with, you need to do your research into the psychology and the workings of the human brain. If you’re lucky enough to land the role, then it will undoubtedly be one of the most challenging roles of your acting career. To prepare for the part, you need to immerse yourself in as much Batman folklore and as many comic books as possible. This will help you find the right tone and vibe for the role. As an added bonus, it’ll also make you look like a total genius when you show up on set and the costume designer has to turn to you for help, knowing full well that you’ve got a PhD in neuroscience.

Have A Backup Plan

Even if you don’t get the part, it’s important to have a back-up plan B. Just in case things don’t work out for you as you’d hoped, you can always fall back on your day job. If you’re lucky enough to get the part, then it’s going to be one of the most exciting times of your life. Just make sure that you don’t get too ahead of yourself and that you remember your obligations as an actor. In the event that you become overwhelmed by the luxury of being in a movie, then take a step back and remind yourself that you’re there to serve a greater purpose. Props can be very distracting in a film, so make sure that you keep your eyes on the prize and stay focused. If you can, take some classes or workshops to learn how to deal with the pressures of stardom.
