With Warner Bros. announcing Ben Affleck as the new Batman it now looks as if they are moving on to the rest of the cast.

We already know Henry Cavill is returning as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Ma Kent.

In addition, Cosmic Book News has been told that Bryan Cranston "HAS" been cast as Lex Luthor.

Now our DC Entertainment source has provided us with information that Zack Snyder is eyeing Timothy Dalton for the role of Alfred.

We are told it is by no means official, but Snyder, and to an extent David Goyer, have ideas for the major supporting cast members already. We are told Timothy Dalton is being looked at for a different take on Alfred Pennyworth as an example of something that is being thrown about.

Our DC Entertainment source previously provided us with early Man of Steel script information which mentioned the bus crash scene, Lana Lang witnessing Clark using his powers, LexCorps in the skyline, and our DC source most recently had Ben Affleck named as a potentional for Batman as well as Tyler Hoechlin, which I've been able to verify through a second source.

The sequel to "Man of Steel" goes into production next year for a July 17, 2015.
