Castle star Nathan Fillion has denied reports that he was approached for the role of Batman for the Man of Steel sequel and thinks he would be terrible at playing the caped crusader.

The sequel will bring both the superheroes –Superman and

Batman– together. Directed by Zack Snyder,the film will mark the return of Henry Cavill (as Superman),Amy Adams,Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburn. ‘Batman’ is yet to be cast.

The Warner Bros produced film will begin shooting next year.

It was rumoured earlier that Christian Bale,who portrayed

Batman in Christopher Nolan’s three-part movie,would take on the role but Bale dismissed the suggestion. And now,Fillion,whose name was doing the rounds for sometime,too has denied being a part of the superhero franchise,reported

Entertainment Weekly.

“I wonder if my throat could take it,” the Castle star

said,joking that it would be impossible to produce the deep voice of Batman. “I think I’d make an excellent Bruce Wayne; I think I’d make a terrible Batman,” he added.

“If you wanted to see a particular person as Batman,I think one of the worst things you could do is shove it down someone’s throat as far as the new director of Batman or the

new producers of Batman,” he added.
