Matthew Goode Rumored For Batman Vs. Superman; Played Ozymandias For Zack Snyder In Watchmen
It's being said that Matthew Goode, who played Ozymandias for Zack Snyder in Watchmen, has taken a meeting for Batman Vs. Superman.
The rumored role is unknown, and the news of Matthew Goode said to be in talks for Batman Vs. Superman preceded the Lex Luthor casting news by a couple of days; so perhaps it's for a different character entirely.
The rumor comes from Comic Book Movie who also stated Josh Holloway is being looked at for Aquaman.
My own source confirmed Holloway, but hasn't heard anything about Matthew Goode in Batman Vs. Superman.
If we keep with the bad guy role, perhaps Matthew Goode is up for Metallo?
Or if we follow Snyder's perceived thinking behind casting decisions, maybe Matthew Goode is up for Aquaman as well as Goode recently finished the underwater adventure Pressure.
Before being cast as Superman, Henry Cavill starred as a super hero in Immortals; Gal Gadot is a model and did her own action scenes for Fast and Furious as well as served in the Israeli military, and of course Jesse Eisenberg portrayed the billionaire behind Facebook in The Social Network.
"Batman Vs Superman" has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
