Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom is the “hot favourite” to land the role of Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel and mooted Justice League film.
The Daily Express are quoting a “senior source” who claims that Bloom is odds-on to get the role as the Caped Crusader:
“Orlando looks odds-on to get the part even before our first casting call. He would be perfect to play off Henry and I think US audiences would be happy with two Brits as the joint male leads.”
Henry Cavill is already on board to reprise his role as Superman in the sequel, and is expected to – if he hasn’t already – sign on for the Justice League movie as well.
The Man of Steel sequel is due for release Summer 2015.
