Hanks would more than likely kill it Lex, but yeah I prefer this Lex to be anywhere in his late 30s-mid 40s mostly because of the way Goyer played up how this Lex would fit into this universe. So basically, think along the lines of:
Matthew McConaughey(44)
Leonardo Dicaprio(39)
Joaquin Phoenix(39)

Oops, looks like I just stated my top three choices for Lex.

I really hope this ends up happening, cause it's easy to see him as Lex. It is also hard to imagine him with the bit of campiness at times like Kevin Spacey/Gene Hackman versions of Lex.

Phoenix is definitely my no.1 right now and I'd be ecstatic if he accepted the role. But if he didn't Michael C. Hall is my next choice although there hasn't been any chatter about him for awhile now, he isn't an A-lister at all so I get that. But besides Phoenix, I think Tom Hanks could possibly nail the role as well Brad Pitt. Dicaprio would be too good to be true honestly.

Here are my choices, if it matters at all. I think they're going to go with an A-lister or an up-and-comer on his way to becoming an A-lister. However, I don't want to rule out some TV actors simply because Michael Shannon could be considered a TV actor, and he was our last bad guy.

Joaquin Phoenix
Matthew McConaughey
Bradley Cooper
Oscar Isaac
Joel Edgerton
Michael Sheen
Damian Lewis
Corey Stoll
Michael C. Hall

I think JP is a great choice. I mean I can see that scene from ALL STAR where Luthor literally spits in Superman's face with JP as Lex. But... I am starting to think that he is the type of talent to say no to this sort of thing.

Guess we'll see. Supposedly he was targeted by Marvel to play Bruce Banner, wasn't he? Was that rumor true? And if so, did he turn them down? Or did it never even get to that stage because Whedon wanted Ruffalo?

I think he was Nolan's first choice to be The Joker in TDK, but he turned it down. Here's hoping third times a charm and he actually accepts. He has had a pretty decent relationship with WB...

I never heard that before about him and Nolan. But even if it is true, I think the perception of these kinds of movies has changed a lot since then, so yeah, maybe now he'd be interested.

If you get the chance go see Her this week. The way he acts in this flick, somewhat obsessive is pretty much on point with how he needs to be per Luthor.

I had better not watch it. I'll just start crying about how he'd be the best Lex ever and people would stare.
