Channing Tatum is apparently in line to play Superman, but is unlikely to be donning the customary spandex like other actors who have played the role.
This is because Tatum is thought to be in line to play Superman in 'Lego: The Piece Of Resistance' which will only require the 'Magic Mike' star to lend his voice to a lego version of the character.
The movie will combine lego animation with live action and according to Variety, Tatum is wanted to play Superman opposite Will Arnett's lego Batman.
Tatum is apparently struggling to commit to the role due to his busy schedule. A sequel to previous film '21 Jump Street' is currently in the works.
However after his current movie, based on his own experiences as a male stripper, 'Magic Mike' it could be the perfect change of pace for the star.
