Tyler could be making the leap from wolf to bat, according to a new report.
Ever since the Comic-Con announcement that the Man of Steel sequel will feature an appearance by fellow DC Comics staple Batman, the internet has been flooded with wishes and suggestions for which actor should next slip on the Dark Knight’s iconic mask. Christian Bale has brushed off the idea of reprising the role himself, and a new report suggest that a surprising — and familiar — face could potentially be handed the torch: Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin!
Not only is Tyler being “heavily considered for the part,” but according to Cosmic Book News, he’s also “getting a screen test alongside Henry Cavill!”
HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Tyler’s reps for comment.
Christian Bale Confirms He’s Leaving Batman Behind
As much as most people would love for Christian to continue playing the role he perfected in the Christopher Nolan trilogy, it’s just not going to happen. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Christian was asked about reprising his nocturnal character in a potential Justice League movie — and his answer was less than promising:
We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy. … I have no information, no knowledge about anything. I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that’s it. … It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.
Could Tyler be accepting that torch from Christian? Hey, at least we know he’s comfortable filming at night!
