Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
Viggo would be great but I don't think he'd want to do it. Didn't he pass on the Zod role? Of course, maybe once he sees how good Man of Steel is (which it WILL be dammit!) he'll want to join the franchise.
But I'm still hoping for Pearce. His (highly underrated) performance in Lawless sold it for me. How he got completely ignored for that while Alan Arkin got a friggin' Oscar nom for playing the SAME character he's played in about his last 10 movies makes me want to put my fist through a wall.
ATTENTION: The rumor about WB's "no jokes" policy is 100% correct. No one should ever doubt any rumor about any upcoming movie, even in cases where it contradicts rumors that have previously been reported. In those cases, both rumors are true.
In other news, Bryan Cranston is playing Lex Luthor, Emily Blunt is Wonder Woman, Benedict Cumberbatch is Martian Manhunter, and that guy from Teen Wolf is Batman.
