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?

By KingLeonidas - 8/9/2013

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.
PaulRom - 8/9/2013, 2:36 PM
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
VenomSpawnRises - 8/9/2013, 2:36 PM
For everyone asking who he is, he played "Deadpool" in X-Men Origins
EarthToOlu91 - 8/9/2013, 2:37 PM
You guys have no idea....
TheFirstAvenger97 - 8/9/2013, 2:41 PM
VenomSpawnRises Wasn't Ryan Reynolds Deadpool?
LordoftheThrones26 - 8/9/2013, 2:41 PM
Richard Armitage for Batman!!!!!!! OR Luke Evans!
WinterAvenger - 8/9/2013, 2:41 PM
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.
Elysium23 - 8/9/2013, 2:41 PM
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.

mcminnjb1990 - 8/9/2013, 2:43 PM
@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.
VenomSpawnRises - 8/9/2013, 2:43 PM
@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!
ShogunNevets - 8/9/2013, 2:43 PM
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
Yeah watch undisputed 1 & 2, also watch Ninja. He got the moves that is for sue

ShogunNevets - 8/9/2013, 2:54 PM
Yo guys I don't know how to post videos but go on YouTube and serch "Scott Adkins fight scenes" and watch the first video, freaking sick
jerryblake - 8/9/2013, 2:55 PM
back in the days, Mark Dacascos would be a great Robin :)
ShogunNevets - 8/9/2013, 2:55 PM
@LEVI the Spartacus dude, isn't he trying out also

BANE5000 - 8/9/2013, 2:59 PM
If he cant pull off the role, just make him fight consultant or Batman fight double
sameoldthing - 8/9/2013, 3:02 PM
This guy has the fighting skill to be sure but he's not a good enough actor for such a major role.
He can be the Batman stunt double..find a high quality actor to be Bats.

Adkins can study hard on his acting skills & portray Daredevil.
He looks like he's related to Ben Affleck!
typicalfanboy - 8/9/2013, 3:04 PM
he has the look, but can he act? he's mostly a stunt guy.
Gnyah123 - 8/9/2013, 3:07 PM
yall r so quick to judge yes he can fight but oh he cant act for shit...well i DO NOT want a FAMOUS A-star actor to play batman..i want zack to stick with what he said...
he wants to get some1 who has had the same rep. as cavil before he was cast as MOS...i havent seen this guy act! but he is know for his fighting skills..give him a chance..i say he has the same rep. as cavil maybe a little lower but IF he gets the job he will be on the same level as cavil

i am for this guy for being batman i hope he gets the job.
Gnyah123 - 8/9/2013, 3:08 PM
once again all of yall want A-list actors
zack said he wants to get some1 who had the same rep. as cavil before he was cast for MOS...
this is the guy! he has a fighting background which makes it better!!
jerryblake - 8/9/2013, 3:08 PM
i would rather see Frank Grillo as Batman. He's better actor than Adkins.
Gnyah123 - 8/9/2013, 3:11 PM
i hope he gets it
i dont want a A or B list actor for batman!
i want some1 NEW! never heard of...this guy looks like a bruce wayne!! and he can FIGHT too...do his own stunts which will be amazing!...i really hope its him
i dont want no old bruce...not sure how old this guy is but hopefully he is the same age around cavil that wud be perfect!
Fastestmanalive - 8/9/2013, 3:11 PM
Wow!! Never heard of this guy b4 but he looks really awesome. Would definitely be happy about this.
Gnyah123 - 8/9/2013, 3:12 PM
if frank grillo wasnt 48 years old...then yeah maybe!
hes pushing 50!
Gnyah123 - 8/9/2013, 3:13 PM
i want this guy...or the guy from Spartacus for batman!!!
