Superhero Hype! received this unconfirmed rumor from a scooper going by the title ‘L.’ today:
Hey! I’m a big fan of your site, and I’ve always wanted to be a spy. Not in the literal, garrott wire and Russian murdering sense of course, but in the movie rumour way.
So, I thought you guys might be interested in this: About three weeks ago I got to go along to some casting sessions in soho for a movie called Justice League. I didn’t know what it was until I saw the character list later. I would have figured it out earlier but with a movie like that one they don’t let them actually read from the proper script until they’re officially cast.
Anyway, we went through a whole bunch of British actors and some of them were pretty good. But I’ve heard today that one of them has been cast, or I guess is about to be cast, as Superman. I don’t remember his audition, but I was out of the room for a lot of it. Anyway, the guy everyone is talking about is called Rupert Evans.
Hope that’s interesting for you.
We’ll have to wait and see if it’s true. Rupert Evans of course played John Myers in Hellboy.
