Mark Strong has fuelled rumours he is to play Lex Luthor in the next Superman film.

The Zero Dark Thirty actor has been named as one of several contenders to play the famous villain in the follow up to this year's Man Of Steel, and has now hinted that the rumours might be true.

When Digital Spy quizzed Mark about the speculation, he replied: "All I can say is... watch this space."

Man Of Steel director Zack Snyder made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con last month to confirm he was making another Superman film, in which Henry Cavill and Amy Adams are expected to reprise their roles.

Zack also revealed the new movie would include Batman - the first time the two superheroes will be united on the big screen.

Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Joe Manganiello, Richard Armitage, Max Martini and Matthew Goode have all been linked to the role of the caped crusader.
