In the last few years Joaquin Phoenix hasn’t been part of many big Hollywood movies – although it’s not clear if that’s because he doesn’t want to or whether the major studios are a bit wary of him. However now he’s being eyed for one of the biggest, as Variety reports that he’s been offered the villain role in Warner’s Batman Vs. Superman.
It’s not been revealed exactly which character Phoenix would play, although after teases in Man Of Steel, many have assumed that Lex Luthor will be a big part of the film. Luthor may still be in the background though and Joaquin could be someone else from the Batman or Superman universes.
At the moment it’s not known if Phoenix will take the role, but if he does he’ll be going up against Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill during summer 2015.
