Basil Rathbone as the Joker? Interesting.

This would have been superb, I think Orson Welles would have been a great Bruce Wayne/Batman

My only complaint is that I think the middle two should be swapped over
Cagney seems more fitting as Two Face to me

Other than that it's some really great work.

I wonder though, if Orson Welles played Batman, who'd be Robin?

Someone younger perhaps, like John Garfield or Montgomery Clift

Interesting.

I came up with some others if you're interested:

Alfred Pennyworth - Clifton Webb

Commissioner Gordon - Charles Bickford

Vicki Vale - Barbara Stanwyck 

The Penguin - Sydney Greenstreet

Scarecrow - Claude Rains

Boris Karloff - Hugo Strange

Tony Zucco - Steve Cochran

Salvatore "Sal" Maroni - Edward G Robinson

Those all sound like good casting decisions. Who'd be Chief O'Hara?

As far as I know he didn't feature in the comics (which is what I was going for based on my casting) only in the 60s TV series.

Besides I'm not too sure I already used Charles Bickford so maybe someone similar to that upstanding authorative type.

He was in some comics from this time I think but not entirely present. I always thought  Scarecrow should've been played by Claude Rains in the 60's show cause he had such a great voice for the role. Either him or Karloff.

Nah, Richard Widmark as the Joker -- with his push-the-wheelchair-lady-down-the-stairs laugh...

Raft did know all about flippin' coins, though...
