Remember when Orlando Bloom was hot for about 30 seconds? I saw right through that blonde wig and wanted to be Mrs. Elf from the Lord of the Rings (Mrs. Legolas because I am that kinda nerd.) Then his role of Paris the Brad Pitt fueled reboot of ‘Troy‘ made all our respective lady wood go limp. It was crushing, but Chris Hemsworth took his shirt off and made it all better a few years later.
The ‘Man of Steel’ sequel was confirmed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but who will take the cape vigilante role? According to rumors, the husband of Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr is up for the role of Batman now that Christian Bale has bowed out after 3 films.
A sequel featuring Henry Cavill and Bloom will be a British invasion, but will it sell tickets? Brits are hot. They can say fart and make it sound sexy, but Orlando Bloom as Batman? I had to shake my head at the notion, but Express insists that it’s true.
“But a senior source at Warner Bros studio confirmed: ‘Orlando looks odds-on to get the part even before our first casting call. He would be perfect to play off Henry and I think US audiences would be happy with two Brits as the joint male leads.’”
I won’t get out my old LOTR action figures just yet. Several other names have been attached to the film and I won’t be surprised if the role goes to someone else. Most recently, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Scott Adkins were said to be in the hunt.
