When Zach Snyder dropped Batman would appear in the sequel to Man of Steel, many grown men got erections in their Underoos that their mom's just folded over the speculation on who would be taking over the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Bale is out, Joseph Gordon Levitt says he has never been contacted, so the obvious choice would be a guy who plays a werewolf on a tween MTV show. Comic Book News reports:
Regarding the new Batman, Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Lincoln Heights, 7th Heaven, Road To Perdition) is being heavily considered for the part and will be getting a screen test alongside Henry Cavill. Warner Bros. and Snyder are looking at somebody to play the new Batman with a reputation similar to Cavill's, when Cavill was testing for Superman. It's also said that better known actors could also be testing for the role. As filming is expected to begin in early 2014, screen tests should be happening soon.
Oh, and here's the plot:
"The sequel is set a year after Man of Steel, and the world is still getting used to having this powerful god on the planet who isn't fully trusted by everybody. Batman certainly doesn't trust Superman. Superman doesn't trust Batman; either of which causes the two to clash when they initially meet. They do however pair up to defeat the villains (not 100% confirmed who the villains are). COULD be Luthor and Joker, but only a select few really know that. Luthor is definitely in the sequel and he doesn't like Superman, believing him a threat to the planet."
Awesome. Henry Cavill and Tyler Hoechlin on screen together. Change a few plot details and this could be one big Grindr ad.
