Former "The New Celebrity Apprentice" host, Arnold Schwarzenegger, recently expressed interest hto return in another "Batman" movie as a villain. Warner Bros Studios has yet to release a comment about the Hollywood superstar's enthusiasm to be included in the DC Extended Universe.
Schwarzenegger said he is "absolutely" up to play as another villain in the upcoming "Batman" movie starring Ben Affleck as the caped crusader. Further explaining that superhero movies are entertaining and will have a great life if they are all written well. "People enjoy them, and you can see the grosses that they make worldwide," he continued. "So, yes, of course, I would."
The 69-year-old actor, who is also a former California Governor, has already appeared in one of the superhero's movies in 1997, "Batman and Robin," as the villainous Dr. Victor Fries commonly known as Mr. Freeze. Fans of the series, however, did not exactly like his portrayal - or even George Clooney as the caped crusader. In fact, the film itself only managed to receive an 11 percent ratings on Rotten Tomatoes with 16 percent audience score and 3.7 out of 10 on IMDB.
It is unclear if he is still open to play as Mr. Freeze again in the DCEU - if he has given the go signal to star in the "Batman" movie. Batman-news, however, seems to think that he could be included in the cast as an entirely different villain from his 1997 portrayal.
There is also another possibility that Schwarzenegger may star in a different movie in the DCEU. Screenrant reported that there were past speculations suggesting that the "Expendables" actor might appear in Gal Gadot's standalone movie debut in "Wonder Woman." The rumor stemmed from when Geoff Johns and Patty Jenkins followed the Hollywood star on Twitter early in February 2017.
"The Batman" is being expected to hit cinemas in 2018 with Matt Reeves at the helm.
