Bryan Cranston, Meet Lex Luthor
“BREAKING Bad star Bryan Cranston has reportedly been cast as supervillain Lex Luthor in the Man Of Steel sequel, alongside Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman. Cranston is said to have signed at least a six-appearance deal with DC Comics, which means he may have more chances to destroy Superman in future Justice League films, according to Cosmic Book News. An official announcement is expected to be made after the conclusion of the final season of Breaking Bad. Comic book fans will probably welcome Cranston’s hiring, following his celebrated portrayal of Walter White – a timid science teacher who starts cooking meth to pay his medical bills. An insider told Cosmic Book News: “Cranston truly is a dream casting for Luthor.” With Affleck on board, DC is also rumoured to be considering Matt Damon for the roles of Aquaman or Martian Manhunter. Mark Strong may also join in the role of Green Lantern mentor Sinestro, which he played in the recent Green Lantern film.” – news.com.au
Superman vs. Batman is shaping up to be quite the blockbuster. First, Ben Affleck was cast as the caped crusader, and now it appears Bryan Cranston will be playing uber villain Lex Luthor. Breaking Bad fans know Cranston has the ability to portray a bald evil genius, and why not stereotypically cast him now while the brilliant character Walter White is still fresh in our minds. Hopefully this star power, combined with Zack Snyder’s directorial style make for another great superhero flick.
P.S. NEVER FORGET
