Got an interesting Batman Vs Superman tidbit this morning. With the ultra secrecy surrounding the project, casting breakdowns at this stage are the only things that offer any real clues. The last casting breakdown that I reported about turned out to be Wonder Woman and now we MAY have another one for a hero. According to sources, the production is currently looking for a black actor in his early 20s who is also physically fit. Here is the kicker though: the part is for a small role in the untitled Batman Vs Superman movie BUT will be recurring in other upcoming DCU films.
The role also shoots for only a couple of days. At first I thought it was some little role but then I also found out that Zack Snyder has met with hot actor Michael B. Jordan for the role. Remember, Zack doesn't just meet with anybody. He targets certain actors. When Jesse Eisenberg got cast as Lex Luthor the Hollywood Reporter said the following:
Sources say that the studio and director Zack Snyder aren't casting a wide net with plenty of auditions to fill roles but are targeting actors from a narrow shortlist of those they want. "Zack doesn't see a lot of people," said one person with knowledge of the process.
Interesting. Could it be for another superhero cameo that pays off later? Could it be for John Stewart? Could it even be for Dick Grayson? Remember, the role requires the actor to be physically fit so I highly suspect a hero part. You guys help me out in the comments below.
What character in the DCU could it be?
Many of you have tweeted at me the strong possibility of Victor Stone aka CYBORG. Good call. I totally forgot about Justice League War. Thanks again for feedback guys!
@elmayimbe might want to have added Cyborg in ur article as a possibility. Given the football scenes, Cavill wanting Cyborg ect ect
