Despite Warner Bros publicly slamming the hard-to-believe rumours, stating that the film's not even close to beginning its casting phase, Sun reporter Gordon Smart is still claiming there's truth to his story.
There's one thing going for Smart's story - he did announce the casting of Daniel Craig as the new James Bond a wee bit before anyone else did.
"Everyone had a crack at us when we published that one," Smart tells The Guardian. "I was almost laughed out of conference that day, but it turned out to be spot on. I wish I had had a bet on it."
Is it possible his Batman story has an ounce of truth to it?
FUCK no! but power to the man for standing by his story.
