Guy Pearce is still, IMO, the BEST choice out there. But I don't think there's a chance in hell that he'll do it now since he played a similar character in Iron Man 3.

I agree.

Everyone knows Denzel is the best at playing bad guys.

Training Day and Safe house were both incredibly popular performances by him.

Yeah, Neal McDonough was scary as hell on Justified. He'd make a great Lex. But I see them going for a bigger name.

I'm a huge fan of Leo's but his voice is too young for lex imo. But hell his such a good actor I might look right past it.

We have to be sure to suggest him for everything, so why not.

I feel like half of the Batman choices are also decent choices for Lex.

That's because everyone suggests the same eight actors for everything.

And because people have developed a notion of Lex as some kind of muscle-bound heart throb.

Has Mark Strong or Armie Hammer been mentioned in this yet? I think that rounds out the top eight, haha.

I'd blame the Timmverse for that mostly.

I really like Mark Strong, but it kills me that it would mean that we'll definitely never see his Sinestro again. That was one of my favorite comic portrayals.

Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender or Ryan Gosling should play Wonder Woman

And Mark Strong is a good choice, but I'd prefer he return as Sinestro in the DCU.

I'm not sure if Goslind has the bust for WW, but why not?

I guess if Tom Cruise can be made to look taller than 4'10 then anything's possible.
