Rumor: Matthew Goode up for a role in Batman vs Superman

01.30.2014

There is still a long way to go in casting the upcoming BATMAN VS SUPERMAN movie. While we have a lot of rumors and conjecture, the only confirmed addition to Henry Cavill as Superman has been Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. No one else has been confirmed for any other parts but tons of names have been bandied around. One name that is newly being thrown into the rumor mill is Matthew Goode.

Comic Book Movie has a source claiming that Goode has met with Warner Bros executives regarding an undisclosed role in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. Goode was previously considered for the role of Superman in MAN OF STEEL and has a relationship with director Zack Snyder dating back to their time working on WATCHMEN. In that film, Goode played Ozymandias, a superhero that was equal parts Batman, Superman, and Lex Luthor.

While Goode is a solid actor, I have no idea who he could play in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. He could make a good Luthor or any number of hero or villain roles. If the rumors of BATMAN VS SUPERMAN shooting back to back with the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie are true, he could be playing almost any DC character. I do think he is unknown enough that WB could get him cheaper than a big name star but he also has the acting chops to pull it off convincingly.

Hopefully this rumor pans out as I would love to see Goode turn in a performance like the one in the video below. BATMAN VS SUPERMAN hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

I would be down for him playing Lex or Braniac.

Never thought about it before, but the guy would be a perfect Riddler. He's got the look, and can certainly act the part. Of course, I have no idea if they even plan to use any Batman villains in this movie, but if they do Riddler would be a cool choice.

This would be great casting. Goode is a great underrated actor and has owned in Watchmen, Stoker, and The Lookout. Would love for him to play either Nightwing, Green Lantern, or Flash.

I actually think that would be terrific casting. But I kind of like the whole Joaquin Phoenix rumor of being the Joker instead. Both would be great though.

Nightwing

If Bruce is on the outs with Robin (bastardizing Kingdom Come, similar to Old Man Bruce wearing the exoskeleton and being antiSuperman Dark Knight Returns) then this kid looks about the right age to be an older Robin/Red Robin/Nightwing. Regardless, they should just admit its a Justice League prequel and bail out on the whole Superman sequel they've been selling. Or just throw it all into a fucking tizzy and do Kingdom Come...ensemble cast, good story, apocalyptic, easy access to character

Marvel took their time building up to the Avengers...DC shouldn't follow type but do their own thing.

Fantastic actor, I always wished that he'd been Maxwell Lord rather than Ozymandias.

I know they're somewhat similar characters but thought he'd just fit Lord so much better, and if this room is true maybe I'll get my wish. I agree that he'd also make a great Brainiac, I'd never pictured him as Flash but I like that idea too. Pretty much, this movie will be better off for having him in the cast, no mater what role they're eying him for.

Flash, I haven't heard anyone mention that character. He would rock as the Scarlett Speedster!

If this rumour is true, he'd be a great addition to any cast

whether as a hero or as a villain. I suspect they're looking at him to round out the Justice League: Martian Manhunter, Green Arrrow, Flash, Green Lantern . . .

Great actor and would make a great addition. I personally think he would make a good Lex Luthor, but I feel like the studio would want to go with a known and bankable star for such an iconic role. On the hero side, I honestly can't see him playing anyone. Maybe Martian Manhunter, but I doubt they'll be adding him to the mix with this movie. I can't see him pulling off the characterization of Green Lantern or Flash, which on appearances he's best suited for. I think we have to look at the

I think we have to look at the possibility that he might be playing a random character in the film. I mean they're going to have to flesh out the cast with other non-superhero/villain roles too. Perhaps Jimmy Olsen? Just kidding.........or am I?

Goode is an amazing actor that I think is quite underrated. Loved him in Stoker and he was awesome in Watchmen. I could see him as Lex but I think he would make a good Hal Jordon (Green Lantern).

Although I wish he wasn't Ozymandias

I do enjoy Goode--especially in last year's Stoker--so this is an excellent rumor. I would love him to be Brainiac, Metallo, or anyone else because he could honestly play a great hero or villain.

So anything anybody says about this movie is going to have an article written about it?

Love me a bit of Goode

Goode in Stoker was excellent. Creepy but a reserved one. His facial expression did wonders for him in that. Hope he plays a villain if true

If I had to guess I'd say it's most likely a villainous role given his resume. Could be a cool Braniac depending on what direction they go with the character. He definitely has a quiet menace about him that I love, most recently evidenced in Stoker in which he was super creepy.
