Batman 5: So far it has seemed that Guy Pearce was close to becoming the next Batman according to several online reports and to Guy himself on the Jon Stewart show. But get this...,according to E Online,the latest casting rumors have boiled down to a single candidate: Ashton Kutcher.

That's right, Ashton Kutcher.

Yes, this might change, but at present, Kutcher's the man in the cowl. How the hell did this happen?! Well, when now out director Brett Ratner got close to casting Superman this year, he tested and retested Kutcher, who apparently did well. The "known mostly as a comic actor and that's even a stretch" Kutcher seemed to want Bats over Supes (who wouldn't?) and is now close to being announced as the lead in the flick to be directed by Christopher Nolan.

Hmmm? Ashton Kutcher as Batman? Guy Pearce as Batman?

Stay tuned...
