I like Cera but that Year One movie he did awhile back gave me nerd rage. It's clear that Ramis will never have another hit again.

It wasn't. Although, it's probably his worst film.

Year One is such a terrible film. I had a really hard time getting through it the first time.

Where was all this support for Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord?

maybe I'm taking crazy pills, but...



Armie Hammer? (Staring alongside Cavill in The Man from UNCLE)

He's got the upper class douchebag shtick down pat (both with the characters he's played and in real life), the build, the voice, the creepiness...

Still prefer Hall, Damon, Ejiofor, or Strong though.

I doubt that was ever even in the movie. That would have been humorous.

Zing.

But there were pictures of the person dressed just like Reeve's Kent on set with Henry.

That's true, but it could have just been a coincidence. I mean, wearing a three-piece suit and a pair of glasses doesn't automatically make you Clark Kent.

Have you seen the pics? Look at them and tell me, in this day and age that it's a coincidence that some extra in a film set in the modern day is dressed so precisely. It was not just a three piece suit, it mimicked Reeve's Clark DP wardrobe to a T.

Been saying this one for awhile but I'll say it again. Jason Clarke for Luthor. Those cold piercing eyes, the rough yet cool demeanor. 100% Lex.

Yep. BvS would be coming out around 6-9 months after Everest and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, when he should be starting to appear on the tip of people's tongues.

If the rumor about Lex being the "Golden Boy" is true another new I would throw in the pot would be Scandal's Tony Goldwyn . He can go from being charming, compassionate, to evil and mad . He's actually been around a while and use to play villains before his Scandal gig. He's already playing the President so if they ever go that route for Lex he's got it down. He'd be more in the Shea mold of Luthor though and he'd look odd bald. I could see him though if they ditch the bald cap.

Given what Snyder said and as far as the casting of MOS goes, they're looking at Oscar winners/nominees. ..not Chandler Bing's evil twin

I had to say it!

'Lost's Terry O'Quinn up for Lex Luthor in BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN?'

Another rumour, apparently.

You are not crazy. I think Hammer could play a very interesting Lex. So I'm glad to know I'm not alone in this.

I also want a younger Lex. I don't want him old.

Yeah I agree. I mean, i'm fine with someone in their 40s, but I don't want anyone much older than that, and it'd be much more interesting if they were closer in age to Cavill.

Exactly. It brings more of a competitiveness if they are closer in age.

Yeah, and it'd just help the GA to know straight away that this isn't just the same old lame Lex they think of when they hear the name.
