Man Of Steel 2 casting Catwoman? (Probably not)

Rumour-mill goes wild as Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel 2 seeks female role

The rarely reliable Latino-Review have gotten their mits on a piece of casting information for Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel 2 that’s so mundane and unimpressive that it is, of course, perfectly plausible.

The Superman versus Batman smackdown is on the hunt for, “someone in their late 20s and are open to all ethnicity…They’re not only looking for a good actress (like duh), but they’re being very specific and looking for an actress who is both tall and possesses physicality.”

Latino-Review makes the spurious assumption that this is a love interest for Ben Affleck’s Batman, while over-excited geeks are cooking up the likes of Catwoman, Vicki Vale, Talia al Ghul, Wonder Woman or Lex Luther’s bodyguard Mercy.

There’s no evidence that it’s any of these things. The role could just be Bruce Wayne’s date in a three minute sequence.
