Did Zac Efron pass on playing Superman in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”?

I doubt it, but that hasn’t stopped ShowbizSpy from running with the unfounded, rather laughable rumour – but hey, we all need a giggle from time to time and this is a good one. Pull up a banana lounge and prepare to leak those who’ve just had colon surgery.

“Zac feels he’s very much following in the footsteps of Leo [DiCaprio] and respects his opinion,” a source told the site. “He didn’t turn Superman down because of him but Leo was unsure whether it would be the best move for him.

“It’s a massive franchise. Zac is now chasing more dramatic roles in independent movies.”

So when did Efron and Leo become buds?

“I met him at a Laker game,” he said. “I’d sat down in seats and I looked down and there was a dude in a baseball hat and I went, ‘Holy s***, that’s Leo!’ I was like, ‘Man, I’m not gonna interrupt you during the game, I know you wanna watch the Lakers. But if there’s any chance that I could just talk to you for a minute, whether we get coffee, anything dude.’

“And he was like, ‘Dude, what are you doing tomorrow? Come over tomorrow — let’s hang out.’

“That’s a little taste of how cool he is. He’s just very down to earth. He’s just an awesome dude. He’s been nice enough to hang out with me a few times.”

That we believe, but this Superman thing? Not so much.

Last week it was announced that “Man of Steel” director was looking for an actor in his late 20s – early 30’s to play the Last Son of Krypton.
