Actor Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to join the cast of the Man Of Steel sequel.
It is unclear who the Walk the Line star will play in Batman vs. Superman, but he has been linked to the role of Superman’s arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor, according to Variety.
Kevin Spacey and Gene Hackman have previously portrayed the villainous Luthor on the big screen and Michael Rosenbaum and John Shea have played the character on TV.
The Man of Steel sequel is shaping up to be quite the star-studded film – Ben Affleck will play Batman, Gal Gadot has signed up to play Wonder Woman and Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne will reprise their role from the first film.
