Mark Strong has dropped a heavy hint that he's in line to play Lex Luthor in the sequel to Man Of Steel.
The prolific British actor, who has appeared in Kick-Ass and Zero Dark Thirty among other movies, had been named as one of several contenders to play the famous villain.
And when tackled on the subject by Digital Spy, he responded: "All I can say is... watch this space."
It was revealed at Comic-Con last month that the sequel to Man Of Steel will be a double-header movie with Batman fighting Superman.
And it has since been reported that Warner Brothers is seeking an older actor to play the caped crusader.
