Superman’s arch-nemesis is looking for an actor to assume his role, and rumors are swirling that Denzel Washington might fit the bill as Lex Luthor for the upcoming sequel titled Man Of Steel 2: Superman Vs. Batman.

Speculation of the 2 Guns actor’s position began when a source revealed the names auditioning for the part, mentioning Washington at the “top of their list,” Web Pro News reports, but nothing has been finalized.

Movie stars already slated for the highly-anticipated film include actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Ben Affleck as Batman.

Previous actors who’ve played the supervillain include Kevin Spacey and Gene Hackman.
