Well, that took long enough. With Zack Synder‘s SDCC shocker that the Man of Steel sequel will actually be a Superman/Batman movie already ancient history (come on, it was days ago… that’s like years in internet time.) Rumors of who will be cast as the Dark Knight are already starting to swirl.
Cosmic Book News is reporting that an unnamed source from within DC Entertainment is saying that a certain TV actor will soon screen test opposite Henry Cavill for the role of the caped crusader.
Rumor revealing photo up after the jump.
Yup, apparently Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin might don the cape and cowl for the forthcoming finest team-up in the world buddy/buddy superhero flick. The 25 year old actor does seem to have a bit of a Jim Lee drawn Batman look to him I’ll give him that much, but since he is famous for being in the Teen Wolf TV series I can honestly say I have no idea how he comes of on screen. Anyone out there actually watch the show and feel like publicly admitting it? Would he make a good Bats?
Cosmic Book News also said this nameless DCe source gave an idea on the films plot:
“The sequel is set a year after Man of Steel, and the world is still getting used to having this powerful god on the planet who isn’t fully trusted by everybody. Batman certainly doesn’t trust Superman. Superman doesn’t trust Batman; either of which causes the two to clash when they initially meet. They do however pair up to defeat the villains (not 100% confirmed who the villains are). COULD be Luthor and Joker, but only a select few really know that. Luthor is definitely in the sequel and he doesn’t like Superman, believing him a threat to the planet.”
Again, this is all from a anonymous source so who knows. Don’t worry kids, I am sure we still have months of speculation and rumor to look forward to.
