You guys seriously need to get over your Titanic hate. Leo is one of the best working actors out there today. Inception wouldn't have been half the movie it was with a lesser lead actor.

What if Lex is in the movie but not as a big focus. He's the owner of Lexcorp and is loved by everyone in Metropolis expect for Lois who tries to prove he is corrupt. When he meets Superman he continues his ''good guy'' act and might even say that he is the true hero of the city. At the end of the movie Lois is unable to prove anything but Superman does believe her. The movie ends with Superman outside Lex's office telling him that he knows Lex isn't who he says he is and that he'll be there to stop him, setting up the sequel.

Yeah, I think that's probably the best route to go, kind of like what they appear to be doing with Sinestro in the Green Lantern movie. Give him a good presence in the film but have someone else (please God, not Zod, please) be the central villain.

I just imagine something like that at the end of a teaser trailer......lex sitting at his desk while Supes comes down slowly outside lex's window like he did at the end of the first episode of STAS, but with his eyes glowing red.....with no music, just the sound of slight wind from Supes when hes hovering down......ah man i cant!

That would be awesome. How would you want Lex to react? I'd want him to be completely unimpressed.

Well, you might get your wish. He is playing J. Edgat Hoover, after all. And while Hoover (at least when he got older) might not have been a blimp, he certainly had some weight on him.

I heard someone mention Denzel Washington as a possible Lex Luthor, and I actually like it. He definitely can pull off the right personality type (calculating evil guy who is somewhat affable on the outside who acts above-it-all and unimpressed).

If Tony Scott was the director for Man of Steel then he would most definitely cast Denzel as Luthor without hesitation.

Do you think Zack Snyder could be looking at Matthew Goode for Lex? It would be kind of interesting as he played opposite Amy Adams in Leap Year; and, if I remember he was up for the Superman as well.

Too similar to his role in Watchmen. And personally I think he would overact.
