I actually consider myself a bit of a "purist" when it comes to my iconic superhero adaptations. But as I have gotten older, maybe wiser, I have been more open to both visual and story driven changes to these long lived franchise characters. I don't have a list for Luthor right now, but if Chiwetel were cast I would not have a problem with it. I would just hope his American accent was up to snuff. Of course that would be my only reservation if D. Craig were cast as well.
