Last week, fanboys and girls had their costume undies in a twist following a report that “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Hoechlin had screen tested alongside Henry Cavill to play Batman in the “Man of Steel” sequel, and one of his “Teen Wolf” co-stars is onboard with the idea.

“I think he would be the best Batman,” “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey told Access at the Variety Power of Youth 2013 event over the weekend.

So what qualities does Posey think his co-star has that would make him a good Caped Crusader?

“Because he’s the man,” he said of Hoechlin. “He’s super athletic, he’s sexy, he’s got a very nice chiseled jaw, he’s got great facial hair.”

Adding, with a smile, “I’m very attracted to him.”

All kidding aside, Posey has faith that his “Wolf” co-star could easily slip into the rubber bat suit.

“He’s a great actor. I really think he would have a lot of fun with the role,” he continued. “So, I really hope he gets it.”
