Billy Zane to Be in the Next Batman or Superman?
Rumours have claimed Zane has met Christopher Nolan, who is directing the sequel to The Dark Knight as well as producing and overseeing a relaunch of the Superman franchise.
The role Zane is rumoured to be in the running for is that of Superman's arch-nemesis Lex Luthor. The 44 year old actor had apparently been linked to the Luthor role even before the Bryan Singer revival.
That's what the Coventry Telegraph is saying. However, there's nothing official and it's all based on rumours as of now. But I invite you to read the article here.
If the rumours turn out to be true, do you think Billy Zane has the chops to play Luthor, that he has what it takes? (well, couldn't be worse than Gene Hackman or Kevin Spacey I guess. In my opinion, Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) is the definitive Lex Luthor). Or worse, could he be in line to play the Riddler (please no)?!?!?
Let me know what you think!
