Orlando Bloom Bound To Play Batman?!? The Super New Man Of Steel 2 Deets!

British men must be born with super powers! Because all of the superhero leads in Hollywood keep going to these English lads!

And word on the Gotham City streets is that Orlando Bloom is on the brink of landing the role of Batman!!!

A senior source at Warner Bros. has confirmed that Orlando is indeed their top choice to play the caped-crusader in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, saying:

"Orlando looks odds-on to get the part even before our first casting call."

If this is true, that means Bloom will be teaming up with his fellow Englishman Henry Cavill as Superman in the EPIC movie that's expected to be in theaters by 2015!


The crime fighting! The capes! The curly hair! We can't take it!!!

Orlando would be the latest in a VERY long list of foreign-born superheroes including Andrew Garfield, Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth, not to mention the Welsh-born Christian Bale that Orlando would be replacing as Batman.

We know he can play a pirate but do YOU think Orlando can pull off the part of Bruce Wayne and Batman??? Or should the studio set their sights on another Dark Knight?

    Orlando is a horrible actor and has a very weak persona to pull this off. He is also not very manly. He was lucky to get The Lord of Rings when he was unknown. By the time he got Pirates Hollywood noticed he sucked. If you notice the guy has only had maybe one leading role and that was about 8 years ago. Watch Elizabethtown if you want to watch some horrible acting and how he can not handle a lead role. The film was not great, but he made it horrible.

    No. He's not right for the role of Bruce Wayne.
    He's a one trick pony that is better suited to the "nice-guy" roles.
    I don't believe he can pull of the strong and complicated personality of batman.

    Man of Steele is a SUPERMAN movie franchise. Just so we're clear here.

    Horrible. Just horrible. I was REALLY looking forward to a MOS sequel. Was not overly thrilled about sharing that sequel with batman yet, but now I think WB does not want to get the MOS sequel or justice league a chance

    Am I the only one who thinks Tyler Hoechlin would make a great batman? He already makes a great wolf man anyway…
