UPDATE: Additional speculation suggests that 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston may also be up for the role. Between these two actors, which would you rather see get the part?
As eagle-eyed fans the world over will tell you, 'Man of Steel' contained numerous references to LexCorp, the company run by iconic Superman villain Lex Luthor. Naturally, tongues started wagging and everyone immediately assumed that the bald baddie would play a major role in the inevitable sequel. And then the fantasy casting began.
And now, Mark Strong has hinted that the role may be his.
Once upon a time, Armie Hammer had actually signed on to be the next Batman on the big screen, in a 'Justice League' movie that was eventually canceled, but judging from his most recent comments on the subject, it sounds like he has no interest in a Dark Knight return.
Before film audiences knew him as the guy behind 'Sin City' and '300,' Frank Miller thrilled comics fans with his dark, revisionist take on Batman in the 'Dark Knight Returns' comic series -- and now it looks like he might be returning to Gotham for the upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman' movie.
After a few years of cool, iconic titles like 'The Dark Knight' and 'Man of Steel,' it looks like the upcoming Batman and Superman crossover film is going to be a bit more blunt. Although an official title wasn't revealed at the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation at Comic-Con 2013, screenwriter David S. Goyer was a little more candid at a panel celebrating the 75th anniversary of Superman.
Much like how fans are pining for Wolverine and Spider-Man to team up with the Avengers in a cinematic blowout, so too are they hoping for a Superman and Batman crossover. A while ago, back when Joseph Gordon-Levitt was rumored to star as the Dark Knight in 'Man of Steel 2' or some standalone film in the universe, talk branched off into a possible big-screen team-up for these two heroes. Now sources say that this will actually happen.
