Is Tyler Hoechlin Too Beautiful To Be Batman, Or Just Beautiful Enough?

Just one week ago, we had no idea that the future held in store for us a Batman Vs. Superman movie. We went about our days as though we lived in a world where Superman and Batman had to stay in their own movies, and probably they didn’t even know each other? Or, if they did know each other, they were just acquaintances who each didn’t think much either way about the other one. (This may have been specifically my world.) But now we’re living in a world where Batman and Superman are not only going to share the screen, but might also share BEING VERY BEAUTIFUL?! From Cosmic Book News:

Regarding the new Batman, Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Lincoln Heights, 7th Heaven, Road To Perdition) is being heavily considered for the part and will be getting a screen test alongside Henry Cavill. Warner Bros. and Snyder are looking at somebody to play the new Batman with a reputation similar to Cavill’s, when Cavill was testing for Superman. It’s also said that better known actors could also be testing for the role. As filming is expected to begin in early 2014, screen tests should be happening soon.

Better known actors like who, Jesse Eisenberg? Louis C.K.? Zac Efron? The cast of Community? (Who are “better known actors”?) One thing the blurb fails to take into account is, even if they decided to cast someone who was ah-not so famous, whether or not America would be ready to handle two beautiful men pretending to be superheros at each other. CAN WE HANDLE IT?! Are both of them allowed to be so beautiful? To be honest, I didn’t even know Superman was allowed to be so beautiful. So. MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD IN OUR POLL!
