- According to a report from Variety, Joaquin Phoenix is currently being rumored for a role in Batman vs. Superman. Phoenix is believed to be in line for the role of the main antagonist, which is likely to be Lex Luthor. Here is what Variety has to say about the potential casting…
"Warner Bros. wants the Oscar-winning actor for a role in the upcoming untitled Batman-Superman pic. However, it's very early in the process and even if Warners offers Phoenix a role, it's not clear he would accept as the actor has steered clear of big-budget pics in the past few years, leaning towards movies with a more prestige feel."
Batman vs. Superman is currently scheduled for a July 17th, 2015 release date and at this time stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Amy Adams.
