“I’m kind of in wait. They just started filming Justice League, so I’m kind of like waiting for my crack at it,” he said.
“I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, because I feel like there’s probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off. But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who’s in it. You know, it’s a really talented group of people,” he added.
To be directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League will be released in two parts.
Justice League Part One is set to hit theatres on November 17, 2017 and Justice League Part Two will follow on June 14, 2019.
Actor Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa are all set to star in the two films.
