Don't expect a Christmas Announcement for the casting of Lex
It is extremely unlikely.

Rumor is now, remember RUMOR, Phoenix wont be Lex.

Lex will be played by Bryan Cranston.

Just heard the rumor a couple minutes ago.

Is there an article on that? Where is that rumor from?

Edit: John Campea said the sources were untested.

hmm. Seems we can't get anything concrete on this.

So? Chris Cooper is 62 and he is Norman Osborn.

Lex isn't a physical role really. I'm fine with Phoenix or Cranston but I would say honestly, prefer Hamm but wouldn't mind for Phoenix or Bryan.

Cranston would work though I do want a Lex that's somewhat in his prime physically this time around. Not like in his 20s but at least mid-30s, so he's on par with Supes lookswise but still looks like he's been around the block more than him.

If this is true, I can't wait to see how that idiot over at Cosmic Book News tries to spin it to make himself sound like a genius.

Hamm and Phoenix are easily my top two for the role. Cranston would be good but I'd personally prefer someone a bit younger.

Phoenix in this role would make me so happy. He looks like lex, has thatching ability to play an iconic menacing lex, and has enough presence to believably go head to head on screen with superman and Afleck. I hadn't thought of him, but he hits all the marks like no one before him.

Hamm would be good, but it would almost be too close to his madmen role. To a lesser extant, I feel the same way with Cranston.


Also, the amount of fame Phoenix has in real life makes it more believable for him to be someone who can manipulate the publics perception so easily.

I like Cranston well enough, but he hasn't exactly hit a stride when it comes to films. I've no doubt he could put in a good performance, but he's just not what I picture Lex to be. After Hackman and Spacey have dominated the cinematic vision of the character, I want a youthful, charismatic, and powerful looking Lex this time out. Basically a darker mirror of Bruce Wayne.

If they really need to go old again I'd rather they aim for the stars. I know Denzel was mentioned, as well as Phoenix. Those two would be top notch picks and I'd easily concede to my vision of the character if it means nabbing someone of their caliber.

Not for me really, even though I do like his show.

I just believe they aren't going to get a Television actor for the role. If I'm proven wrong I'll be eating crow but that's always been my position all along. Not saying it's going to be Phoenix because he was always a long shot but I still believe it's going to be a movie actor.

Thanks Matt! I'll look into it.

I can't see them going from JP to Cranston. I know Breaking has a following, but seriously...

Cranston is nothing to sneeze at and I think he could do the role justice, but no one else would hype me up like Phoenix would.
