Yeah, there's a difference between the characters, but I'm not sure we'd get it by Aaron, especially under Snyder's guidance. Aaron's not THAT diverse, and these differences require a superior actor to be presented in a way that would differentiate him from a similar part he might've played in the past.

I actually want Chiwetel for Black Panther. But I could totally see him as Lex. His turn as The Operative shows he has it in him to fill the shoes of many a legendary villain or hero. The race change thing would also be par for the course in respects to all the recent casting news of CBMs as well.
Yes, Chiwe as BP is pretty good, but I think Lex is a meatier role for him (well, depending on how Goy/Sny/Ben write him).
