RUMOR: Zack Snyder Considering WATCHMEN Star Jeffrey Dean Morgan For BATMAN

A new report claims that Watchmen and Supernatural actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan is meeting with Zack Snyder about possibly reteaming with the director for the role of 'Batman' in 2015's Man of Steel sequel which will pit the Caped Crusader against Superman. Check it out!


The Hollywood Reporter's short list of actors up for the role of Batman included Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin and Richard Aritage, and while Latino-Review would later throw Gerard Butler's name into the mix, another possible candidate has now emerged. According to Think McFly Think, Watchmen's Matthew Goode isn't the only star from that film to be in contention for the role of the Caped Crusader as Jeffrey Dean Morgan - who played 'The Comedian' in that movie - is said to be meeting with director Zack Snyder about the role. At 47 years of age, he certainly fulfills the older Bruce Wayne that the studio is looking for. However, despite taking on plenty of varied and meaty roles in the past, he arguably lacks the big name presence of some of the other rumoured candidates. However, so did Henry Cavill, and that certainly didn't stop Man of Steel from being a success! What do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!
