Orlando Bloom To Play BATMAN In MAN OF STEEL Sequel?

Okay, the latest rumor is that Orlando Bloom is the top contender to play Gotham's Dark Knight opposite Henry Cavill in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel, Batman Vs. Superman. This is coming from The Daily Express, so it has to be true, right?



Once Warner Bros. announced the Man of Steel sequel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, many fans wanted to know who would takeover for Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Since then, site after site, has claimed that they know who is the number one contender to play the Caped Crusader, or at least have a good idea of who is on WB's shortlist. We've heard names like Matthew Goode, Ryan Gosling, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Josh Brolin, Scott Adkins and Gerard Butler being in the mix, and that isn't even all of them. But now, you can add Orlando Bloom's name to that list.

But a senior source at Warner Bros studio confirmed: “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.”


The 36-year-old actor is best known for playing Will Turner in three Pirates of the Caribbean films, and Legolas in Peter Jackson's epic fantasy-adventure trilogies, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Outside of those two lucrative roles, Orlando's acting career has failed to bloom, with domestic stinkers like, The Three Musketeers and Elizabethtown. But don't feel too bad for him, the man is married to Australian model Miranda Kerr.
