Rumors have been swirling for weeks now about the casting of Lex Luthor in the upcoming Man Of Steel sequel, the much-talked-about Batman vs. Superman, for which Ben Affleck was just controversially cast as the Caped Crusader. Names like Mark Strong and Bryan Cranston have been floating around for the Superman nemesis, which quite possibly might just be wishful thinking on the part of a very hopeful Internet.

Cosmic Book News claims to have exclusively learned that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has been cast as Lex Luthor and has signed on for a multi-film deal to make at least six “appearances,” similar to how Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury shows throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The site, which attributes their scoop to unnamed sources, says that Warner Bros. is waiting to make the official announcement until Cranston’s hit AMC series concludes at the end of September.

At this point, there’s only one primary source of this story – CBN – and they have not named their sources and WB has not make any official announcements. So, this should be treated as rumor for now, although, it’d be pretty kick-ass if it turns out to be true. Although, if Cranston, who somehow made the world love him as a crystal meth-cooking drug kingpin, does play Lex Luthor against Henry Cavill’s Superman, they might have audiences rooting for the villain!

We’ll keep you posted as news and confirmations comes in.

  1. Six appearances? Must be total for the Batman/Superman film, because Warner Brothers doesn’t have enough material planned for him to make six appearances outside of that movie.

  2. If Batman/Superman movie takes off and DC continues development on tv shows (already have Arrow, Flash is being fast tracked and Wonder Woman is off again/on again) ahead of the anticipated Justice League film, Lex Luthor could end up being the primary baddie, organizing mayhem and mischief throughout all of the DC universe. That’s easily 3-5 possible appearances but I’m betting some of those “at least 6” appearances could be reserved for possible sequels if Justice League and Superman sequels prove popular enough.
