Here we go again with another round of casting rumours for the anticipated Batman Vs Superman movie from Warner Bros, with the latest reports suggesting Orlando Bloom is the frontrunner to play Bruce Wayne opposite Henry Cavill’s man of steel.
The 36-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star has been ‘confirmed’ as a favourite to take on the role of the caped crusader by a senior source at Warner Bros:
“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 insider claims to the Express.
According to the report Bloom is expected to sign on as Batman by autumn before casting begins for more roles in the forthcoming Justice League franchise.
Orlando is just the latest name to be linked to the coveted role though, with reports last week suggesting that Ryan Gosling is a favourite among studio bigwigs.
