Well, the trouble is, there are only so many huge names out there that fit the bill. Most of those guys (though certainly not all) are at least fairly recognizable up-and-comers. I really want them to avoid an actor who is twice Cavill's age; we've had that before in the films and I think it's time for a change. Lex should be a bit older than Superman but I don't want a guy who looks like he could be his father.
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.
