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.” –

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.
