It seems Giancarlo Esposito is a popular man. With one story from today already discussing the rumor that the actor is up for a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (which you can read about in the RELATED section) it appears he may be up for a role in the other comic book universe, in the upcoming and long-awaited film from Matt Reeves, The Batman.

Not only  Esposito, but Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx is apparently also being considered for a role. The news comes from Geeks World Wide (who has an excellent rumor track record) via Batman-news.com.

While I would be pleased with either being cast, or even both, I am more interested to see what Jamie Foxx can do with a Batman villain. As most of you know this wouldn’t be Foxx’s first comic book role as he played the villain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. No word is the pair are up for the same role or different characters.

Of course, take this all with a grain of salt for now, but official information on The Batman has to start dropping soon, right?

The Batman is set for a June 25, 2021 release date.
