Re: Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 5
Nolanite pretty much sums it up. If Phoenix isn't interested, then I expect WB to continue to target A-listers. That doesn't necessarily mean that they would target Pitt. And since Snyder said in an interview that his idea of Lex is some sort of cross between Richard Branson and Brad Pitt, it's not too big of a stretch to think that they might pursue him.
/waits for someone to respond with a "Oh, well maybe they'll make an offer to Richard Branson" joke.
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.
