Metropolitan Vasilije (Popović) (also Basil; in Serbian Митрополит Василије (Поповић)) was the second Metropolitan of Banja Luka, from 1907 to 1937.
Vailije (Popovic) was elected as Metropolitan of Banja Luka in 1907 by the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. He was ordained by Archbishop Evgenije of Sarajevo and Metropolitan of Dabro-Bosna; St. Petar, Metropolitan of Hercegovina and later of Dabro-Bosna; and Metropolitan Ilarion of Zvornik-Tuzla. Metropolitan Evgenije preceded him as Metropolitan of Banja Luka.
He and his flock were accepted into the Serbian Orthodox Church in 1920, a move the Ecumenical Patriarchate approved in 1922.
