‘Batman vs Superman’ Directors Looking for Young Male Black Actor

February 26, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Directors for “Batman vs Superman” are looking for a black actor in his early 20s who is also physically fit.

Sources told Latino Review, which is generally accurate, that the actor would play a small role in “Batman vs Superman” but would also automatically be guaranteed roles in upcoming DC Universe films.

Because the role in “Batman vs Superman” is so small, the actor would only need to shoot for a couple of days.

Director Zack Snyder met with Michael B. Jordan, who was recently cast in the Fantastic Four reboot, about the role. 

There are lots of potential characters that the role could be, including Dick Grayson aka Nightwing, and Victor Stone aka Cyborg.

The role could also be John Stewart aka Green Lantern, or Barry Allen aka The Flash. 

Because of a delay, “Batman vs Superman” isn’t slated to hit theaters until May 2016, but more news about casting and filming will be coming out long before then.

In the film, Ben Affleck will play Batman and Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman.
