I really think Lex has to be presented as someone no more than 15 years older than Clark, at the most. He needs to be older, but not in a way that makes him from another generation. The difference should be more like youthfulness vs. maturity. Or am I being too obtuse?
Agreed on Shoot 'Em Up. Plus Owen.
Seriously, put Nic Cage versus Giamatti and this guarantees 3 Billions, 15 Oscars, shot in 4D, 150fps (faps per second).
As for Lex, I'd say 10 years older is a happy medium. Clark is 33 (looks 30), Lex should be at most 45 and should look 40.
