Honestly I'm getting tired of turning famous white comic characters black. It's an uninspired gimmick. Perry white was minor enough to be tolerable, but if they cast a black guy as lex honestly that's going to lessen the character for me. I didn't mind nick fury or kingpin, but the same old trick for this many of the same type of character is just over kill. Here' sand idea, instead of race bending characters in the comics why not just use diverse characters that are already in the comics. If batman and wonder woman can supposedly be in a superman movie without overshadowing superman, why not make room for steel in future sequels? Just an idea.

And with the post-Crisis version of Lex, there are compelling reasons to make him white. For instance, certain versions of post-Crisis Lex can be seen as the archetypal white collar criminal, corrupt CEO - the epitome of all that is bad with the American dream, the perfect foil for Superman/Clark Kent who represents the best of America. The visual iconography of that archetype is lessened if Lex is another race. Then, he probably becomes just another minority gangster who was corrupted by life in the ghetto (if you go with the Suicide Slums back story), at least with Goyer's clumsy writing. We have few enough models of powerful minority business leaders that it is a disservice to equality to turn Lex Luthor into a negative one.

For a younger Lex Luthor, how about Eddie Redmayne?

I can't see Momoa as Lex. That doesn't even compute for me, but he's definitely a henchman....just not sure whose yet.

Could be. I just can't see Mongul showing up. though considering the Kryptonians tried to invade earth then that might be the calling card for other beings to try it too. It should be interesting.

Alan Moore wrote a pretty cool issue where super, bats, and wonder fight him on supes bday. but momoa is probably just a thug for hire.

Not saying he's A-list, but why hire Momoa if you're just waste him as a henchmen? That truely does not compute.

Yeah Moore's story is very cool. That episode of JLU aside that is one I'm hoping they tackle as an original movie.

He just doesn't strike me as having more potential. He is a good henchman. I recently seen him in something where he was playing that role and it worked. So what I'm saying is I'm type-casting him...

The nice thing would be if Hollywood and comic book companies would keep creating cool , interesting and lasting characters that aren't all straight white guys. Raceswapping characters is tiresome for many reasons, biggest one is that it is just very lazy.

So I will always see it as a small failure from Hollywood, a sign that they can't create an interesting enough original character who is black,hispanic or asian, so they just raceswap.

While I don't think Jason is the greatest actor, I do like the fact that an actor of mix ethnicity like himself has been able to get decent roles. I'm pretty sure he went through the same thing that Vin Diesel went through when he first started: "You're not black enough, you're not whatever enough'.

I thought he was in talks to play Flash? That's what I read when they announced Gadot as Wondy.

Interesting....I like his look.

This isn't true. He's only been rumored to be playing Metallo and Doomsday. There has been no confirmation of what character he was in talks for.

I haven't heard Flash, but if you Google his name, pretty much every result is going to come back saying he is rumored for Lex.

I like his look as well, he has facial scarring and is blind in one eye due to an accident. I think it gives him an edge.

Lex as well. All rumors as I said, but I think he could be Lex.
