Warner Bros. have remained remarkably silent regarding the Man of Steel sequel, aka BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, but that hasn’t stopped fans from around the internet from running with every possible casting rumor.
One of the biggest rumours at the moment is that Breaking Bad actor Byran Cranston is in Warner’s radar for Lex Luthor. The Internet is abuzz with a casting report from Latino Review that has most fans jumping for joy. Of course, this is amidst rumours that Mark Strong is up for the role as well. The British actor has suggested he will play Superman’s arch-nemesis in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. When asked by Digital Spy whether there is any truth to rumours he will be portraying the iconic villain, Strong said: “All I can say is… watch this space.” Who do we believe?
A few weeks ago Michael Rosenbaum, who played the part of Lex Luthor in the hit CW show Smallville, tweeted his interest in revisiting the character in the possible Man of Steel sequel.
