I suppose if Lex is a smarmy, pompous snob who talks in a faux English accent, he'd be fine. And I know Lex has been portrayed that way from time to time. But that's not the Lex I'd want to see. Yes, Lex is rich and views himself as superior to almost everyone, but (IMO) it should be because he IS superior to everyone. He's literally the most brilliant man on the planet and that power is essentially what corrupts him, even though he probably doesn't see it that way. Lex isn't just some uptight aristocrat type. But if Zane played him, I fear that is the type of Lex we would get. Even if he wasn't written that way, he'd come off that way.

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.
