According to “The Hollywood Reporter” Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling, are on the shortlist to be cast as Batman, besides Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel.
Production is set to start next year on the planned Batman/Superman movie, which Warner Bros is bringing to cinemas in the summer of 2015. Zack Snyder is to direct the film, and he’s sharing story duties with David S Goyer. Goyer is then writing the script.
Given that the film follows on from Man Of Steel, we already know the Superman side of the movie’s casting (save, perhaps, for Lex Luthor). But it’s inevitably who’s going to be the new Batman that’s the current big question.
The List also includes Richard Armitage, Matthew Goodem, Joe Manganiello (of True Blood fame) and Max Martini.
It is to be noted that, this film will not be an origin story of Batman, as he will already be established in the ‘Man of Steel’ universe. It is important though to take this with a pinch of salt as many things can change in the later stages of casting and development.
