I think he'd be a better choice for Brainiac.

Didn't think of that. He would make a cool Brainiac.

He'd make a fantastic Brainiac. Good call.

Or a good Vision in the Avengers, although christ-knows when they're going to get around to introducing him; he's certainly not going to be in the 1st movie.

What about Christian Camargo? He was on the first season of Dexter.

Nah. I wouldn't want Brainiac to be played by an actual person. This isnt Smallville you know

That was me If there is any black actor I would be for taking on this role, it's Denzel. A lot of people would like Fishburne too though.

In that case, someone would need to have little word to Fishburne about cutting down on the burgers to avoid another 'Predators' fiasco. Noland was supposed to have been hunting and scavageing off the land for years yet he looked like he'd been for seconds (and thirds) at an all you can eat buffet.

Last I heard, Luther wasnt a porker either (well, not unless they go with Byrne's Luthor, I guess).

LOL I agree about his weight. I'd prefer Denzel over Fishburne anyways though. I think people like Fishburnes voice as Morpheus from the Matrix, and automatically carry it over to Lex.

You know, I keep coming back to Olyphant. I'm loving the thought of him as Lex.

I'm betting though, we'll get someone awesome and completely unheard of, like Jeremy Irons or something.

I still think it will be a big name actor for Lex. I'd vote for Brad Pitt again, but dunno if he'd even agree to take role.

I hope not... with dudes like Brad Pitt it seems the movie would get attention just because Brad Pitt is in it, and not because he'd give a great performance. Even though I like him in Troy and Inglourious Basterds, I think he's more name than anything else.

I agree they need a big strong actor but not one thats bigger than the movie

I don't just want him because of the name. I think his look and acting style fit the type of Lex I want. A corporate Lex that can manipulate the public, has a suave charismatic way even. Then behind the scenes, we see moments of a cold and calculating villain. This Lex should actually be a ladies man to some degree. He was the supreme alpha male all the women want, then Superman literally flies into the picture. A man with unmatched power, a level above human to Lex.

Jeremy Irons

That's one of the reasons why I think Christian Camargo would be a good choice for Lex. He's a bit unheard of. He'll be able to pull off a Lex that can go from being charismatic and gaining the publics trust to being manic.

Based on Costner, Lane, and Adams selections, the actor playing Lex is very likely to be an Academy Award winner or nominee, and not any of the smaller players that some have mentioned.

********!

As I just wrote in another thread reporting the same story,
Nicholas Cage will be cast as Luthor a million years before this Adam person gets the role.

Adam probably has a buddy working at Radar and they are hooking him up with some free publicity which he desperately needs.

They know the fanboys eat up these stories without questioning them in the slightest,
they know the infamous fanboy oath;
"if I read it on the internet, it is probably true. Even if it is probably ********,
I will pretend it is not and crosspost it everywhere I can!"


All the movie sites are going to keep up serving stories like this as long as we keep gobbling them up.
