Perhaps the lack of a Lex Luthor actor casting announcement is pointing to no Lex in this movie?

It's not a deal breaker for me but I think alluding to him even with a 30 second cameo would be wise. as long as it feels natural. Maybe as a way of introducing Lois or something.

If that's the case, (no Lex) then they might as well not have Lois either. Lex is *arguably* just as important to Superman as Lois is. Especially so in an origin tale.

I could see them not having Lex if it were just Clark spending most of the film traveling the world Pre-Superman, but if they can find a major role for Lois in this, then they can for Lex as well.

Agreed, Lex is like Magneto. He should be in the picture, if only a background player(pulling the strings). Lex owns half of Metropolis, he's got to be there in some capacity.

Yeah, bald he looks just like Hackman at the end of STM. Anyway I can't take Rosenbaum seriously in Smallville. He just looks like a skinny bald kid. That's why I'd prefer an actor in his 30s and one physically imposing.

I guess I can kinda see it but I really don't think people would make that connection. If Penn was interested (even though the previous news we received is that he's not) I'd be all for seeing him play Lex. He'd do a great job.

I am leaning towards that it is a big name actor and that they are taking time to nail down the contract. I had a dream last night they cast Leo for Lex. I think it's time to take a break from the boards.

He actually reminds me of a silver age rendition of Lex.. and Mr. Clean too because of the earrings.

I have always thought Leo had a decent shot at being Lex because of the nolan connection.

Nolan isn't casting this film, he's not the director thankfully.

I'm really looking foward to him in Scorpion King: Book of the Dead. If it's anything like his work in Journey to Promethea we're in for an acting treat!
