Hello everyone! I don't know whether or not I'm in the majority, but Lex Luthor is what is making me most excited about seeing "Superman Returns" next year. Luthor is one of the greatest villains in comics, and in this movie he is being played by Kevin Spacey, one of the greatest actors working today. But in these boards, there hardly seems to be any talk on Luthor. Discussion is mainly about the costume, or Brandon Routh, or the hunt for new pictures. But on the rare occasion that a Lex Luthor thread does pop up, there tends to be some really interesting conversation there. So there must be other people out there wanting to talk about Luthor. Perhaps what is needed is a thread specifically created for general discussion of the character. I tried this a couple of years ago with "Doctor Octopus Hype", which was a great success over in the Spider-Man 2 boards. So let's see if we can do the same for Lex Luthor. In this thread, feel free to discuss all aspects of Lex Luthor: - What you want to see him say and do in the film - Comic arcs with Luthor you like - Past appearances of the character in film an TV - Kevin Spacey - past performances, what he'll bring to the role And of course, any images of Luthor are welcome. Hopefully, this thread will evolve into a comprehensive account of the development of Lex Luthor as we approach the release of "Superman Returns". I'll start things off with a picture and some quotes. Any comments? 'Romans built the roads. Persians built the ships. Americans built the atom bomb.' 'The Gods are selfish beings who fly around in red capes and don't share their power with mankind.'
