The Detroit Free Press reports that Warners Bros. saw almost 4000 people for roles that are said to be for clean-cut military and law enforcement types and business executives in suits.
It’s said Warner Bros. needs about 8,500 people for various roles in the film with an availability between June and mid-November.
Apparently about 7000 people turned out for the Batman Vs. Superman casting call audition – so many in fact, that WB had to turn some away.
