I am aware that I'm in the minority here, but I don't think its as crazy a notion as some do.
You're not alone. I never thought of Hanks for the role because of his legend as a likeable persona, but when somebody first mentioned it in here, I couldn't clap hard enough. To me, Phoenix is without a shadow of a doubt, perfection
, but Tom Hanks would certainly carve his name into that role and make it his own. I would totally welcome Hanks in that role. Hank's Luthor would be so mysterious in how he'd approach him that I actually want to see it, lol.
