Wow, we have not been this excited since Christmas.
According to recent reports, Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston may have bagged an enviable role in the Man of Steel sequel — as Superman’s archenemy, Lex Luther. Dun dun dun!
Per Cosmic Book News, the 57-year-old actor not only locked in the role, but also a contract for at least six subsequent films. Now, there’s a good deal!
Warner Bros. is allegedly waiting for the Breaking Bad finale to air (Sept. 29), before making the official announcement.
As to Cranston’s character, Lex Luther is a tricky one to portray. Initially imagined as a mad scientist with a full head of flaming red hair, he has since lost his hair through a series of character evolutions.
His portrayal on TV and in comic books varies from power-hungry mad-hatter to a white-collar criminal industrialist. It will definitely be interesting to see the direction the character will take in the Man of Steel sequel.
We think Cranston is a perfect choice for this villain; he is an incredibly versatile and talented actor. What do you think of the casting choice?
