Ryan Gosling & Joe Manganiello: 'Batman Vs. Superman' Contenders?

Will Ryan Gosling be the next Batman?!

According to THR, the 32-year-old actor is among six contenders for the role in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman Vs. Superman.

The other frontrunners include Josh Brolin, Joe Manganiello, Richard Armitage, Max Martini, and Matthew Goode.

The script is still being written and director Zack Snyder is only just starting to look at actors. He is reportedly looking for someone in their late 30s to early 40s.

Casting should be announced in the next few weeks as Warner Bros. wants to shoot the movie in early 2014 for a 2015 release.

WHO DO YOU THINK should play Batman in the new film?

    They should pick an actor a little less unknown. Those tend to always be the best.

    Max Martini is sex on a stick, but not Batman. Really feeling Richard Armitage as an option.

    Hi, nan. Why do you think that Joe can´t act? joe is not looking to play? Just because he makes as Alcide forets insecure:-)?? I Think he can certainly look to play if he gets the right role. He is not only absolutely hot&sexy, has this stunnig smile and those big hands…. I think he can still offer much more than “just” run naked through Bon Temps. It´s right: I´m a big big fan of him!

    My God, Joe Manganiello is awkward-looking meatball and excruciatingly dreadful actor. Just watch him in those fuking ice cream commercials. Pass.

    I thought Tyler Hoechlin is one of the contenders… He gets my vote…

    MrBrooks Says:

    I Think Max Martini would make a great new fresh batman. He’s got a unique gritty look about him and he has the voice. I don’t know how well he acts, but from what I have seen so far, he seems to be a fresh new step in a different direction.

    Superman over Batman any time (Batman is too dark for me).
