Dicaprio on superhero movies :

"You never know. You never know. They're getting better and better as far as complex characters in these movies. I haven't yet. But no, I don't rule out anything."

Just look up Dicaprio on superhero movies, I got this quote from a link on CBM

Lang... Oh I would have no problem with that. He's a lot more versatile than most give him credit for. He could handle charisma and menace deftly. Head shaved? Damn, and those crazy eyes... Yeah, we'd get a good Luthor.

I'd prefer that Lang play someone like Cable. Lang's a good actor, but I don't think that he screams Lex Luthor to me.

I was right about Paul Rudd as antman...sure I called it after he entered negotiations, it's still my scoop though. crossing fingers for tom hanks as luthor.

Just trying to think who might be their back-up if JP doesn't happen. Oscar Isaac perhaps? He's getting a ton of positive buzz for Inside Llewyn Davis (he's even up for the same Golden Globe as JP). He played a somewhat Lex Luthor-esque King John in Robin Hood, and he's worked with Snyder before. We've talked about him quite a bit on these boards before... Anyone else think he could be their #2 guy?

Lang would kill it. He's already shown he could a badass in Avatar. He's 61 though.

calculated guess. they tend to go with oscar nominated/winning type actors for those villain roles. that's what michael shannon is, heath was, that's what jp is. they wanted dicaprio to be the riddler. he'll get nominated for dallas buyers club, and interstellar's a wb production too.

McConaughey or DiCaprio are going to be their Plan Bs. They definitely want a name for the role.

You know they would look at A list types who have worked with WB's or have good relationships with WB's before on previous films.

Phoenix with Gladiator and now with Her. Matthew M most recently with Magic Mike and Interstellar. Leo has worked on a number of WB's films also.

yep. affleck too, though he probably wasn't who people expected.

Phoenix for Luthor!

Dear God: If you make Phoenix accept the role of Luthor, I will finally start believing in you.

leo was almost spider-man when jim cameron was doing that movie in the 90s.

and depp isn't really playing a brainiac type. transcendence seems like it's basically that episode of batman beyond called "lost soul" where a rich tycoon tries to live past his physical death in an AI form then tries to take over his grandson's body after "inhabiting" the batsuit.

Wasn't Depp interested in Ghost Rider at one point? He dodged a bullet there.
