100% this.

Denzel would NAIL the Lex role, moreso than any actor suggested thus far (Crowe would've actually been on par with him had he not been cast as Jor-El). The backlash would be tremendously ridiculous though. As a Black man, I wish we really did live in a "post-racial" society but I ain't naive.
