The star of 'Star Wars' prequel trilogy has been rumored to be landing the role of Superman in the upcoming superhero movie directed by George Miller.
Hayden Christensen, the actor who is known as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the prequel trilogy of the notable "Star Wars" series, has been rumored to have been tapped to star in the upcoming "Justice League Mortal". According to Cinema Blend, the 26-year-old is set to play Superman in the superhero flick.
The site noted that they got the reports from one of their readers named Candace. Allegedly, the reader got in touch with one of the Warner Bros' film stars, Adam Brody, in a British Columbia bar in Canada and he reportedly revealed much about who is playing who, including Christensen for the role of Superman.
"I asked Brody to sign a napkin, and asked what he/they were doing here. They're in BC to check out locations for their new superhero movie Justice League is Mortal. Brody pointed at Miller and said "George is our director"," the reader claimed. "He said he's playing The Flash, Common is playing Green Arrow (or Lantern, one or the other), Armie Hammer (sounded like Arm and Hammer) is Batman, someone from "mad max" is Martian Man-hunter (didn't catch the name) and Hayden Christensen is Superman. Brody also nodded to the woman to his right and said "she (he said her name but i didnt catch it) is in it too". Oh, and they had lots of drinks."
Aside from Christensen's casting, Candace's reports also added the fuel to the speculations that the production of "Mortal" is going to be moved from Australia to Canada. Additionally, "Mortal" is said to be the new title given to the George Miller's action adventure movie known as "Justice League of America". Still, the studio producing the film has yet confirmed the new title.
