Woah, hold on now.

It appears that The Master, and Her actor Joaquin Phoenix has been offered the lead villain role (though he has yet to answer) for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman.

Blogs began covering the story, Twitter exploded with chatter, and before I had finished my second cup of coffee it seemed everyone was already believing MCR had returned from the grave.

Well, sorry …
