My source, General Napier, has informed me, Matthew Goode recently had a meeting with Warner Bros. executives to discuss a role in Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film. As for which role? That was not disclosed.

In the past, Goode was one of several actors on Warner Bros. shortlist for the role of Superman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, that eventually went to Henry Cavill ("The Count of Monte Cristo"). And this isn't even the first time Goode's name has been linked to Batman Vs. Superman. Last August, The Hollywood Reporter reported Goode was in contention for the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne, which eventually went to Ben Affleck ("Argo").

Goode previously worked with Zack Snyder on the 2009 adaptation of the classic comic, Watchmen. Currently, the English actor has a recurring role on the CBS hit-drama, The Good Wife.


Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay written by David S. Goyer, from a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, and also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film which will now be arriving in theaters May 6, 2016.

IronAsgaardian95 - 1/29/2014, 7:16 PM

Space - 1/29/2014, 7:17 PM
Now there's a Hal Jordan
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 1/29/2014, 7:17 PM
Played a decent villain. Watchmen was the only thing I've ever seen him in. Don't know who the [frick] he'd play... I could see him as Brainiac...

My name is ozymandias, king of kings, look upon my works ye mighty and despair!
CaptainComicBook - 1/29/2014, 7:18 PM
Metallo or Lex or Victor Vale (male version Vicky Vale and gay love interest of Batman)
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 7:19 PM
i liked him as adrian veidt,its just the way they presented him and wrote him, you kinda knew he was the bad guy from the beginning
SmellofDuty - 1/29/2014, 7:19 PM
Lex or Brainiac for me.
Tech3099 - 1/29/2014, 7:19 PM
Not Lex. Not Metallo. He will be Mxyzptlk.
EpitomeofAwesome - 1/29/2014, 7:19 PM
Huh, he could be really, really good
JayJayCAW - 1/29/2014, 7:19 PM
.....Mister Luthor???.....He pretty much played him when he was Ozymandias
Firgosaurus - 1/29/2014, 7:20 PM
He gonna be Hal Jordan.
IamKAZAAM - 1/29/2014, 7:20 PM
Let's stop with the rumors. Can we plz get an official casting?
thebearjew - 1/29/2014, 7:21 PM
hes not luthor guy looks way too young for any of those roles he was up for
clark? bruce? lex? NAH
CaptShipwreck - 1/29/2014, 7:22 PM
Not every actor hired or reading for a part doesnt have to be for actual comic book chapters
thebearjew - 1/29/2014, 7:22 PM
based on the OFFICIAL casting we have so far


its just going to be batman and superman no one else


probably just them sitting in a cafe

Interesting. Honestly I wasn't a big fan of him as Ozymandias and I think he's better suited for a villain, he's got the height he just needs to work on the build to be along the lines of Cavill and Affleck. Although it's probably unlikely, could see him as our new Hal Jordan/Green Lantern (Or possibly Kyle Rayner).

[frick] stupid auto correct , I meant they characters ..he could be playing a reporter or somebull shit
JDUKE25 - 1/29/2014, 7:24 PM
He's a good actor. Wouldn't mind having him in these movies.
Bread - 1/29/2014, 7:24 PM
He'd be a better Lex than that psycho Joaquin Phoenix.
MrCameron - 1/29/2014, 7:25 PM
Could it be Braniac who ales a cameo at the end setting him up as the main villain of the Justice League movie?
NostalgicYouth - 1/29/2014, 7:25 PM
He was good in Stoker.
TheMexicanSuperman - 1/29/2014, 7:25 PM
@TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM, he would make an awesome Brainiac.
Humperdink - 1/29/2014, 7:26 PM
After playing Ozymandias, I think playing another comic book evil genius would be a bit cliche for him. Certainly would be predictable.

I doubt he's Luthor.
FlashFacts - 1/29/2014, 7:26 PM
Brainiac !
Moohika - 1/29/2014, 7:26 PM
Do you guys think that since BvS is now coming out in 2016...is 8 years enough time to introduce a new Joker?
ScorpioRisin - 1/29/2014, 7:27 PM
inb4 someone claims he's taking over Batman's role since the Affleck dropping out rumor
Moohika - 1/29/2014, 7:27 PM
I think yes!
ForeverPowerful - 1/29/2014, 7:27 PM
"I'm not a comic book villain..."
SilverFalcon - 1/29/2014, 7:27 PM
Also would definitely be disappointed if Goode ends of playing Lex. Joaquin Phoenix was practically born to play the part, and he's got the right age, look, and acting style to pull of a menacing Luthor that'll work well opposite Affleck and Cavill, as well as version of the character different (And in my opinion) then any we've seen in past Superman films.
Lemons - 1/29/2014, 7:28 PM
Joker
sportsguy8 - 1/29/2014, 7:29 PM
He was the weakest part of Watchmen. Ugh!
JoJo1982 - 1/29/2014, 7:29 PM
Metallo!!!
ThePowerCosmic - 1/29/2014, 7:30 PM
Hmmmm...doesnt seem like a good fit for Lex, probably somebody else.
jaysin420 - 1/29/2014, 7:30 PM
Maybe Brainiac?
