Orlando Bloom . . . As Batman?

“Orlando would be the latest in a VERY long list of foreign-born superheroes including Andrew Garfield, Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth, not to mention the Welsh-born Christian Bale that Orlando would be replacing as Batman.”[PerezHilton]

File this under disastrous potential casting choices: Warner Bros. wants Orlando Bloom to play Batman!!!

According to sources, “Orlando looks odds-on to get the part even before our first casting call.” They are referring, of course, to the upcoming Man of Steel sequel in which Batman and Superman face off for the first time.

Weren’t they trying to get an older, more rugged Batman this time? Unless Bloom packs on a good 40 pounds of solid muscle, he’s just too dainty a lad to play the Caped Crusader convincingly (and that too next to Henry Cavill).

Thoughts? Suggestions? Outrage?
