I think Denzel Washington would be great.

Elba, would be ok, but man Denzel would be awesome, and I'm sure he would jump at the bit to play Lex. He's also, one of my favorite actor. Probably top 3, but he's just way too old. Still, if cast I would be more than excited. Again, I can't see him doing this for more than a few years because he would be really old. Tom cruise and Brad Pitt wouldn't be the worst either. I'm one of those people though, even when he plays a villain, I don't find Pitt menacing in the least. Or Cruise for that matter, but between Collateral and the Jesse James flick, I did find Cruise more menacing.

Again, look at Dwayne Johnson for the role.

Denzel shows no signs of aging.

Sure, he'll be 60 by the time of this movie's release...but who knows what they have in store for Lex?

Right now, he's the only A lister actor I can picture smashing the role without doubt.

60 is 60. He does show signs of aging. He looked pretty old in Flight. Not so old in 2 guns, but he does look 60.

Well he's good for 60. No denying that.

Yes. Brad Pitt would kill it. Cruise would just take Lex to another level. He can play a smooth evil bastard, like in Collateral.

It's like comparing Sam Jackson in Black Snake Moan to Sam Jackson in the Avengers. At the end of the day, it all depends on what they do to Denzel in the dressing room.

Would love to see Jon Hamm as Luthor, could totally buy him as somebody that the general public thinks is a great guy but is actually the worst kind of person.

All the more reason to envy the younger and more powerful Superman.
