Lol, yeah.

So close. His dad is my favourite male actor of all time. But I take this. He was at least on par with Driver in Klans.£
Mine too, at least one of. I wish Denzel worked with better directors. I know it's a two way street because he was asked why he doesn't worked with directors like Spielberg and he said because he hasn't been asked which is fine I guess. The best directors he's worked with are the Scott brothers, Zemeckis, and Spike Lee. Not bad I guess.

Oh, shit... My homeboy is not f'kin around. He's going to shatter the earth. I can sense it. His movie will be lit AF. Great casting. Now cast Bale as a second lead, Nolan.

His role in Blackkklansman wasn't very showy, but it was a classic case of 'excellent lead role'. So heres hoping and betting that he will be the sole lead.

I like Hardy/Cumberbatch/Fassbender/Gosling/Cooper as much as the next guy, but I'm not entirely fussed about seeing their 63rd lead role in the last 5 years, I want to see a new fresh voice and I want to walk in excited about seeing a performance again. With those above guys, you pretty much know what you are going to get.

Entertainment Weekly are also saying he’s the lead and they have sources other then Varity.

If he has a wife/love interest I hope Nolan casts Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Or Ana De Armas for Artemis’ meltdown. ; ) I kid I kid.

Like Deadline they said "Lead" in the title but not in the article it's strange...

I suggested Hannah John-Kamen a couple of months ago on another board.

Well fuck me. Are we even sure? Cuz remember North By Northwest-Gate??? Either way, this is exciting. Haven't seen Blackkklansmen yet but now I have even more reason to. Assuming this story is, ya know, TRUE
