If you are a fan of the Superman movie franchise, this has been a big couple of weeks.
First we had found out that Batman would be in this installment of the Man of Steel. However, we had no idea who would be picked to portray the role. There were a few people considered for the part but when Ben Affleck was announced, fans of the movie went ballistic. The outrage was spread throughout the internet as movie goers wondered how he could have been picked. Someone who couldn’t even portray Daredevil was now set to take over the role of DC’s most iconic character? Most of the fans wondered if things could get any worse for the up and coming sequel.
Well now the internet is a glow with rumors that Lex Luthor is going to be in this sequel. The rumors are being further substantiated that Bryan Cranston has agreed to take on the role. If you have no idea who Bryan Cranston is, he is a very talented actor that has been in more than a few movies and television shows. He is most famous however, for his role on the hit AMC show Breaking Bad. His character Walter White has been through a series of trials and tribulations trying to secure a future for his family before he dies.
These quickly spreading, yet still unconfirmed reports claim not only that Mr. Cranston would be Lex Luthor in this movie, but that the deal is for at least six films, and could be for as many as ten. These reports are not yet official, but no one is hurrying out to deny them either. We may have to wait for the series finale of Breaking Bad (which occurs on September 29th) before we get conformation. As for how big a role he will have in this up and coming film remains to be seen.
So if this turns out to be a solid fact that he will appear in the next installment of Superman what do you think?
Can Bryan Cranston pull off the role of one of the greatest criminal masterminds on the planet?
Will the presence of Lex Luthor in this film make up for what seems to have been the disappointing choice of Ben Affleck as Batman?
