With Zack Snyder officially announcing the Batman Superman movie yesterday at Comic-Con, expect the flood gates to open in regards to who wants to play the next Caped Crusader.
Warner Bros. also officially released a statement that they will be casting a new Batman (if they haven’t already done so), and that The Dark Knight Trilogy director Christopher Nolan will be on board as executive producer.
So up first for wanting to play the new Batman is Liam McIntyre, known for the Starz original series Spartacus.
Liam McIntyre tweeted that it would be a dream come true to play Batman.
“Oh my god. So there’s going to be a new Batman,” the actor tweeted. “It’s time to dream big. Always be Batman.”
McIntyre then goes on to mention that, similar to Henry Cavill, he’s a big fan of World of Warcraft as well.
“In the world in my head where I do get cast, my main concern for Zack Snyder is that Batman and Superman would be playing WoW all day,” McIntyre added.
For those not in the known, when Henry Cavill got the original call from Zack Snyder stating he won the Superman role, Cavill ignored the call because he was too busy playing World of Warcraft.
The new Batman Superman movie, a sequel to Man of Steel, begins production next year with a 2015 release.
