The rumor mills are once again churning surrounding the Batman Vs. Superman movie as the latest has Larry David to play the mischievous imp from the fifth dimension with Myxlplyx.

RadarOnline has it that Batman Vs. Superman has "Ben and his personality taking over this whole production" with it stated the actor has had talks with Larry David for the role and wants him in the movie.

It said the two are neighbors and have been chatting about Myxlplyx.


"The pair chatted about the idea with earnest abandon throughout the course of Emmy weekend. Larry has long been courted by the big budget superhero industrial complex, being linked to roles in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man sequels nearly a decade ago,” an insider reportedly revealed to RadarOnline. "But Ben is somebody he trusts and enjoys spending time with and this could be the right situation for Larry to finally appear in a huge-grossing hit film," the insider continued. "Fun speculation that it could be for the famed Superman enemy role of Mr. Myxlplyx could make this piece more exciting, since Larry is a dead ringer for the character."

It's also stated that with "Ben taking over production" it looks as if Affleck will get a producer credit on the Man of Steel sequel.

If Goyer and Snyder do actually consider using the character their approach would be rather interesting as Myxlplyx is one of Superman's more powerful foes.

The sequel to "Man of Steel" goes into production next year for a July 17, 2015 release also starring Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
