Movie News: Orlando Bloom for Batman?

Movie News

Another day, another Batman…

Whereas it’s been previously claimed that Josh Brolin is the current front-runner for an older, grizzled Batman in the MAN OF STEEL sequel, it was also reported yesterday that Christian Bale has been offered $50 million to return to the cape and cowl. Well, add another name to the list, as The Daily Express claims that Orlando Bloom is a shoe-in to play the Caped Crusader.

A Warner Bros. source apparently told the paper, “Orlando looks odds-on to get the part even before our first casting call. He would be perfect to play off Henry [Cavill] and the US audiences would be happy with two Brits as the joint male leads.”

The same report claims that 36-year-old Bloom is expected to sign a multi-picture deal, which would include the MAN OF STEEL sequel, JUSTICE LEAGUE and several other projects.

Personally, this writer cannot think of a worse choice for the Caped Crusader and I hope this this is just a load of Bat-bollocks.
