If you’ve been keeping up with the rapid rumor mill, you’ve probably heard about Bryan Cranston supposedly playing Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie. Too many sites reported the possibility as fact and confused a lot of people. Cranston did tease Metro that director Zack Snyder should give him a call because he likes Luthor, but now he seems surprised about the rumors.
In a recent interview with Boston.com, he addressed the issue:
“I’ve heard that too,” he said. And what about those reports that he’s signed to play Luthor in as many as six “Man of Steel” movies? He laughed. “Six? This is all news to me. I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I’m known to be bald. ‘What bald guy can we get?’ The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him.”
I still think Cranston is in the running. Goodness knows that he’s got the skills to do it.
Would you like to see Cranston in the role?
