Has Scott Adkins Already Auditioned For BATMAN Role In MAN OF STEEL Sequel?

There was a fan campaign launched to get 37 year old British actor Scott Adkins a shot at playing Batman in Zack Snyder's follow up to Man Of Steel. Has it succeeded?

This tweet from Scott Adkin's offical Twitter account seems to confirm that!

Adkins is arguably one of the bigger action stars today and certainly one of the most talented. He has starred in a string of action film roles in films such as X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Expendables 2, and is generally known to be the most complete fighter in cinema today.

Below, you can see a video designed by his fans to get him a shot at Batman.



















Some images and videos above from his most famous roles for those who are not familiar with Adkins.

Huh, we'll see how this turns out.

He probably won't get it, especially after announcing that he auditioned.
Moohika - 8/9/2013, 2:36 PM
would be awesome. I could overlook the acting if the fights are badass

For everyone asking who he is, he played "Deadpool" in X-Men Origins

VenomSpawnRises Wasn't Ryan Reynolds Deadpool?

Well I guess we wait till this is confirm from Warner's and DC but if it true then I can't wait for him his fighting skills it at top best

Adkins is great. Good actor for sure. I just can't see him as Batman. He's not that good.

I could see him as a consultant for a fight scenes.

He kinda looks the part and he sure as hell can fight but i'm not sure if he can act.
@Levi those are some really good choises.

@VenomSpawnRises that was the worst deadpool adaptation that could have possibly happened. The guy can't act so they got rid of his mouth and that is saying a lot for killing a character altogether because the actor is shit. I want a real actor not a freakin' stunt man.

@thefirstavenger97 Only for close-up shots.
LordoftheThrones26 - 8/9/2013, 2:43 PM
Scott Adkims appeared in Undisputed 2 and 3 and was one of the bad guys in Expendables 2!

If you click the link in the tweet, he looks the part. I've never seen him act before, by the way the new batman shouldn't shave. Leave some facial hair like the one in the comics, more specifically his facial hair in Arkham Origins
TheFirstAvenger97 - 8/9/2013, 2:44 PM
Ok that makes sense.
LordoftheThrones26 - 8/9/2013, 2:44 PM
He is also set to be the villain in Hercules 3D
ShogunNevets - 8/9/2013, 2:47 PM
All and all, if he gets the part I'd be fine with it, he really shouldn't be posting all over the internet like that or DC might drop him, I hope he gets the part though, might be the first batman without a stunt double

Barakapool?
Moohika - 8/9/2013, 2:48 PM
somebody post a video of this guy's fights because they are awesome
ShogunNevets - 8/9/2013, 2:49 PM
And again, no throat cancer batman. Can batman talk normal please. You can be intimidating without straining your throat
pOoPEE - 8/9/2013, 2:50 PM
