At this point it would just be like 'Who's the villain? Oh it's Mark Strong again'.

Yeah, but he's such a strong choice.

Was that a pun? :funny:

Yes, Mark Strong as a villain is old hat, but let this be his final villain-role that all the other led to.

This was tailormade for him and with this cast they need a heavyweight for the sequel.

I say no to Mark Strong. I don't get what is so special about him in the first place.

Colin Farrell sounds good.

Rodrigo90 08-19-2012 11:31 AM

Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
 
Yeah, I think he would be pretty good. He definitely has that manic side in his acting, as well as a serious side which would be great for playing Lex.

Nah... Don't like that idea. I like Colin, but not as Lex.

You might like it in a few years when Lex will probably show up! :p

Who knows? I just might.

Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
 
I mean he's proven himself as a villain and a serious actor. By the time a sequel comes about Farrell will be 40, so I'll wait a few years to see what time can really do!

By the way, does anyone else besides me demand Lex's Kryptonite suit? :o

I don't....I don't see it working. Also, in this day and age, it would be a total rip off Stone in IM. I think he should use K-juice...and enhance himself like Bane. Better to keep it in house...

TV show, 'The Killing'.

He's also the new Robocop, but you'd have to wait until next year for that. :yay:

lol....Robocop...eh?

I have the The Killing on my Netflix, but I'm not feeling it since I know it was cancelled. I'll look for him on Youtube...and Robocop. :yay:

Sorry, Majik. I don't want to feel this way, but I do. I love the powersuit in nearly every incarnation I have seen it, but I don't feel it would work for a movie. :dry:

The Guard 08-22-2012 11:30 PM

Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
 
There's no reason Luthor's Kryptonite suit wouldn't work...it would just need to be thought about a bit, and its use would need to be well-timed.

It makes perfect sense if Luthor runs out of options or ends up wanting to do his own dirty work, and if Zod brings a Kryptonian battlesuit to Earth, I wouldn't mind seeing Luthor appropriate elements of that for his own battle suit.

Obviously, by the time he puts that on, he can't be upstanding businessman Lex Luthor anymore. But it can work as well as anything in the mythos.

You're asking for a lot.

Rust 08-23-2012 03:40 AM

Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
 
Cant see why it shouldnt work either. Lex in a powersuit is very much something that could happen in this MOS-universe, especially if Snyder also does the sequel.

Maybe Lex somehow gets a hold of Zod's suit and modifies it with some kryptonian help.
