Clive Owen.. so we can all have a Lex Luthor that looks like he hasn't had a shave in 2 days. t:
Shoot Em Up's problems stem from it not being what the audiences were expecting. I suspected it was more an adult, over the top comedy from the first ad I saw. But the mass audiences thought they were paying a ticket for a conventional action movie like was produced through the 80's and 90's.
I really think Lex has to be presented as someone no more than 15 years older than Clark, at the most. He needs to be older, but not in a way that makes him from another generation. The difference should be more like youthfulness vs. maturity. Or am I being too obtuse?
Lex is Bald... All over! That's right ladies... All over.
When everyone knows it should be Batffleck who should be like that.
Agreed on Shoot 'Em Up. Plus Owen. Seriously, put Nic Cage versus Giamatti and this guarantees 3 Billions, 15 Oscars, shot in 4D, 150fps (faps per second).
As for Lex, I'd say 10 years older is a happy medium. Clark is 33 (looks 30), Lex should be at most 45 and should look 40.
Shoot 'em Up featured a lot of Monica Bellucci's breasts. I thought it was a pretty good movie.
For that reason alone, it's an awesome movie.
Javier Bardem...."ooh, Mr. Wayne"
Precisely!. Which is another reason why I want Lewis for the role. He fits that bracket perfectly. As do DiCaprio and Damon if it has to be a bigger name.
he should have been Bane! lol
maybe he still can be one day
No, not Javier
No matter who we pick, it will be wrong.
Trust me on this. Didnt see anyone pick Batfleck.
How bout Kevin Spacey? Its a little " out of left field", I know. It could work though
Not really. Tons of people here picked Cavill.
Yeah he did some great stuff in Superman Adventures, but what's wrong with Red Son? That's one of the greatest Elseworlds I've ever read, AND particularly it has one of the best depictions of Luthor.
Its such a shame that our chance to have Spacey as Lex, a guy who seems BORN for that role, was utterly wasted in "Returns".
Welcome. ..and it's nice to know how unpopular Javier is for Lex that you join to say that
No one's mentioned Kyle Chandler?
He's worked with Ben and a pretty darn good actor too.
True. But to be fair, Cavil was on the radar going back to RETURNS. That some would pick an actor that was a hairs breath from getting the part himself 6 years earlier is not that remarkable.
Let this sink in people. Viggo has been mentioned before, but that was before Ben's casting. Think about that now. Ben and Viggo facing off across the boardroom table.
Viggo is an excellent choice. If this was ten years ago, I would have liked Ed Harris. Strangely, the two remind me of one another.
That western they did together is soooo gooood. t:
Bryan Cranston FINALLY got asked about those Lex rumours, and put them to rest.
Now we'll be hearing
"CBN were lying"
What's funny is that he called the fanboys out on fancasting anyone without hair.
