That's the tricky part. Not showing the excitement as a fan because there could be that slight letdown but in my own head, Phoenix is practically the perfect Lex Luthor in how I picture him and what he is capable of pulling off. Plus, his look is superb and is the best look out there for Lex if you're just judging on that alone and then you add in his talent and it's just a perfect casting. That said, We've been talking about Lex for a long time now. It's getting close so I think no matter who it is, we're on the edge of our seats here.

How do you guys feel about Lex being a physical specimen?

From what I've seen he has always prided himself on being in peak physical condition. Do you think that's something they'll go for, or will he have on his suit the entire time?

^ I'd love it if he rolled his sleeves up,and a ton of muscle was revealed. That would be great in some type of fight scene or something.

I would prefer a Lex who is in great shape, but I would actually prefer if they never even show it off. Because that's not in his character. He wouldn't take his shirt off and flex his muscles unless it was time to lay all of his cards down on the table.

Maybe they could just give the actor some padding under his business suit to make him look more "filled out".

I hear you! Me thinks the Lex casting announcement will be coming right before X-Mas or around Jan 2-4th.

In the end I think it will come down to actors like Phoenix, McConaghey, Pitt, Gyllenhaal or Denzel. At least I hope it does!

The suspense is crazy!

I really hope that Denzel Washington isn't in the running. I'm sure that I'm alone, but I never saw a movie where he came off as likable. I'd prefer Lex to have that ability.

My understanding is that they couldn't even get talks with Washington off the ground.

Uh Brad Pitt is not going to ever play Lex Luthor guys, I don't know why people keep bringing his name up. It's pure fantasy.

Brad Pitt would be one of the worst choices possible to play this role .

lol It really is. DiCaprio and Pitt obviously do not care to play in a comicbook movie. For all I know they could love comicbook movies, I mean DiCaprio is besties with Spider-Man afterall, but that doesn't mean that they want to play in one. Not every actor wants to do a comicbook movie.

And that's why I'm happy that his playing the role has zero chance of happening.

Yeah, I honestly can't see him as Luthor.

Eh, I don't know that Pitt is as far outside the realm of possibility as some people think he is. I mean he did just do a zombie movie. I'm not trying to take a shot at anyone here but I do think that some of you believe he'd never want to take a role like this simply because you don't want to see him in the role. And while that's understandable enough, as far as I know, he's never said anything like, "Superhero movies don't interest me; I'd never do one."

On the other hand, Daniel Day Lewis HAS said something to that effect, yet people keep suggesting him anyway.

Okay you keep hoping for Brad Pitt and see how that works out. The people who suggest DDL are even more delusional.

Who said I was hoping for him? All I'm saying is that I haven't seen any proof that he would never do a movie like this.

They are about to start shooting this film and they are currently casting the lead villain role, if there was even a hint that Brad Pitt were interested or WB was going to offer it to him we would have heard about it by now.

Where is the proof that he would do a comicbook movie?
