Whether this is true or not remains to be seen. I couldn’t find any proof of the tweet on Adkins’ twitter feed. Personaly, I’ve always felt that a Batman actor requires a lot more than combat skills, there is a bit of acting involved. That’s exactly where Adkins falls short. He might have the moves, maybe even the looks, but he sure as hell can’t act.
In other news, there are also rumours that Christian Bale was offered a sum of $50 million dollars to return as the Cape Crusader for the Man of Steel sequel. Can he turn down such a huge amount of money? We will have to wait and see.
In the meanwhile, here is a look at a fanmade clip supporting the casting of Scott Adkins as Batman.
