Joaquin Phoenix Offered Villain Role in Batman vs. Superman

  • Posted 55 months Ago

Film industry magazine Variety are reporting that actor Joaquin Phoenix has been offered a villain role in director Zack Snyder's upcoming film Batman vs. Superman. Not much has been revealed so far, but the role is believed to be for the character of Lex Luther. Apart from playing Commodus in Gladiator 13 years ago, Phoenix has generally shied away from big blockbuster movies, instead opting to work with directors such as Spike Jonze (Her) and Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master). He's also rumoured to be up for a part in the new Gus Van Sant film, Sea of Trees, so it's still very unclear as to whether or not he will accept the villain position.
