He made a great sleazy villain in The A-Team.

Great. Though I'm not gonna watch that because of Wilson alone.

I doubt he's big enough for Lex unless they're not going for a big name. Which I really imagine they will. If he's not already cast that is.

I wonder who might already be cast that they still have to announce.

the no announcement has me worried. i will not see this movie without lex in it in some form. i don't need a "total" reboot of superman.

Aww come on, watch it! The A-Team is great fun. Shame it wasn't a hit.

Also, Wilson is excellent in Hard Candy. Definitely check that one out, if you haven't yet.

Ok, I would watch the A-team for Wilson and Copley then. Copley's pretty good. Wilson's Lex and Copley's John Corben then.

The A-Team exceeded my expectations of the movie; however with that said, I didn't think Wilson was good in it.

Regardless of the actor, if Lex isn't the next announced then I would start to worry.

Very few of these actors really embody Lex to me. Luthor has a specific look beyond his baldness that people usually overlook. He has a strong face with piercing eyes and dark eyebrows. Michael Shannon had that look, but unfortunately he was stolen for the role of General Zod.

I've heard suggestions he should be J. Jonah Jameson as a matter of fact.

I always saw him as Norman Osborn. But he could work for Lex.

Always been a fan of Isaacs for this role, but a large part of me wants them to avoid the typical route of casting a well known actor that's played the villain part before. Not to mention that Isaacs has a natural scowling face, so he immediately comes off as a villain without speaking.

I'd like Lex to evolve a bit throughout the franchise. One of the few things Smallville got right was Lex's turn from ambitious and good-intentioned mogul, to a deceitful and ruthless megalomaniac. It really helped Rosenbaum exudes charisma. Very easy to understand where the character came from, even when he was in the wrong.

I won't worry. If Lex isn't in the movie I won't lose any sleep. He'll be in the sequel (if there is one) for sure.

Wouldnt hurt me either, but he should probably still be featured somehow. A small introduction of a friendly Lex (being a vice mayor maybe?) at the end for the sequel would be nice.

It wouldn't necessarily ruin the movie for me, but it would definitely bother me. Lex isn't like Moriarty or the Joker... he's pretty much integral to Superman's origin because he represents that natural resistance and prejudice that some people would have towards him. Yes, he's Superman's greatest foe, but he's also a symbol for a larger idea. It would be like doing an X-Men movie without once addressing the public's reluctance to accept the mutants. You would be removing a key component of the story in order to just have beefier action scenes.

Dude, you'd PASS on it? He can still have a presence throughout the city without actually being in the movie, and then Lex can be brought in big time for the sequel, creating public distrust for Superman, especially considering all the damage that will probably be caused by Zod.

He could actually anonymously be shown at the end of the movie too. Superman takes off for the end flyaway, and flies past Lex Corp or something, and the camera is behind Luthor and you can see his bald head watching Superman as he flies off.

That's what I meant, that he isn't in the first movie.
