Since the news broke at this years SDCC that the sequel to Man of Steel was going to feature Gotham Cities Dark Knight himself speculation and rumors have been posted almost daily.

However four recent rumors have been causing quite a stir, regards to casting of Batman.

The Top 4 Batman Hopefuls, or should that be Top 3?

According to THR Warner Bros are allegedly keen to have Josh Brolin (Goonies, MIB3) to play an older, more experienced Batman, whom will feature as both an adversary and then a mentor for Henry Cavill’s Superman.

The Latino Review claims that Christian Bale, whom recently played the character in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, to critical acclaim, has allegedly been offered $50 million to reprise the role. The article does cite many sources close to production.

According to Scott Adkins Fan Site the actor (Expendables 2) has supposedly auditioned for the much coveted and speculated role, while the latest news from UK newspaper The Daily Express claims that Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom is the favorite to play the role, despite not showing in any websites wish-list. The Daily Express goes on to claim that Bloom is expected to sign a multi-picture deal this fall, including the much talked about Justice League movie.

So there you have it, despite our own and many other websites many wish lists the top four contenders for the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the crossover Man of Steel sequel are Josh Brolin, Scott Adkins, Christian Bale or Orlando Bloom.

Well we here at Scified would argue for either Bale or Brolin to be cast in the role of the Dark Detective. Though Scott Adkins would look good alongside Henry Cavill, he doesn’t really convey an air of wisdom or experience. The same goes for Orlando Bloom, he just isn’t “rough enough” – an older, experienced Batman needs to be grisly, gravel-voiced, bittered and battle-worn.
