Hey girl, how would you like to watch a movie about someone going crazy underwater? Fresh off the success of La La Land, the internet’s boyfriend — or the internet’s ex-boyfriend, I really struggle to stay on top of these things — has turned to comic books for his next project. According to IDW Entertainment (via iO9), Ryan Gosling will produce a film adaptation of The Underwater Welder, a 2012 graphic novel by renowned comic book author Jeff Lemire.
The sequel to this summer's Man of Steel, which director Zack Snyder confirmed at Comic-Con would feature a new actor in the role of Batman, is only in the script stage, so it may be a tad early to speculate about who might be the next actor to wear the cape and cowl.
So let's speculate. Some of the names floating around include Drive's Ryan Gosling, No Country for Old Men's Josh Brolin, True Blood's Joe Manganiello and Watchmen's Matthew Goode.
