Along Came Polley. LMFAO. A sleeper funny one for me. Hoffman was hilarious. He can play it all.

Fans over analyze the "looks" department for Lex as their depictions have to fall in line PERFECTLY to the comic character. In a modern age, I think the look off Hoffman can pull Snyder's vision off:







I can certainly, without question, see vision in which Snyder described (Brossman/Pitt) and I hope they take this route other than the usual "Lex needs to be bald, young, fit and as good looking as Superman blabblah" debate. It's what makes the film direction exciting. It's all in how the director sees it rather than the current comic book realm of things when it comes to appearance. IMHO, Hoffman would NAIL IT.
Philip Seymour-Hoffman's not a bad choice. I like it! I think this clip from Mission Impossible 3 sums up the acting chops to pull off Lex Luthor:

Ever since this movie was announced, I've been more interested to see who plays Lex than who plays Bruce. C'mon, Warners!

Perhaps it is like their casting of Batman,
they know who it is, they are just waiting to announce it.

If the show "Arrow" isn't connected to the Man of Steel universe, I hope that Brolin is cast as Deathstroke at some point.

The "modern Luthor" that fans want has to do with his personality, intelligence, characterization, etc, not necessarily his physical appearance.

A very interesting choice. There is definitely an unspoken connection between Lex casting and Batman casting. Rorschach was essentially the Batman of Watchmen, so I can see this working very well.

Exactly my mindset, worked with Snyder before as you mentioned with Watchmen, so hes definitely gotta be at least a plausible option.

It's growing on me more and more. I was never a Cranston for Lex fan, I want to see Mark Strong's Sinestro back and most of the popular "outside of the box picks" are probably unattainable, so he's in my finalist list.

Hopefully we get a definitive choice soon. Want to see how the rest of this cast rounds out.

For sure. The big ones that I'm waiting for are the Lex casting and who (if there is) the supervillain is.

This. Taking forever. I bet mark strong gets it though, since I believe Snyder already expressed interest in him. After watching him on low winter sun a couple of times, I think he would be a great choice.

I could see J.E.H as a Brainiac. He got the eerie features and those inhuman buggy-eyes.
