LMAO cosmic joke. They create new rumors every week and always ignore the fact that theyre last false scoop never happened. It's one big trolling site and i bet the people in charge laugh their asses off when they type up a new article.

Oh god i remember EVERYTHING. They all sucked and never came true. What ever happened to their Batman reboot directed by Aronofsky where Bruce is younger and based on the Arkham games? The title was to be "The Batman". Haha.

The sad thing about the Cranston rumor is that so many legitimate sites took it and ran with it. I even remember one referring to Cosmic as a "trustworthy source." I was like, "SERIOUSLY?"

Don't remind me. There are no standards in entertainment journalism.

I'd actually like a Phillip Seymore Hoffman type for Lex.

I could care less what he looks like. I just want to really hate him at the end. Hoffman's bad guy in MI3 was very wicked.

Yeah, Hoffman was really good in IM3, though a tad underused. If he was announced as Lex I'd be pretty stoked. He might not have the classic Lex look but he's got an intensity few actors can match.

He was the only thing that kept me from turning The Master off halfway through (one of the most overrated movies I have ever seen).

Hoffman is always wicked. But he fits characters like Penguin, Rupert Thorne.

PSH would be great, though there a hundreds of villain roles he could play brilliantly.

I would really dig Hoffman as Rupert Thorne, it's too bad Bob Hoskins retired a few years ago, otherwise he would kill it as The Penguin.

Hoffman was in Mission Impossible 3, not IM 3.

Worst thing about him is if he's right he's unbearable, if he's wrong, he never acknowledges it.

LOL, I know. Typo.

Though it would have been interesting to see Hoffman breathe fire.

I kinda do too, I just for some reason don't see Metallo in this movie. though I just want El to be wrong since he's such a complete turd about these kinds of things.

Yeah. He swore up and down that Wonder Woman wouldn't be in this movie and that the rumored actresses were testing for another role.

Then after the WW announcement, he's like, "DON'T FORGET WHO TOLD YOU A WEEK AGO THAT GADOT WAS THE FRONTRUNNER!"

F*** him.
