Ok, I have no idea how acurate a site cosmicbooknews.com is, but I figured I'd post this article anyway.
Even if this isn't true, and thats very possible, its an interesting idea that I'd never considered. I've never seen Breaking Bad (I only really know Cranston from malcom in the Middle and various cameos on shows like Seinfeld), but I think bald Bryan cranston could look like Luthor (if you got rid of the goatee and glasses from the pics I've seen of him bald in breaking bad) plus he's always seemed like a decent actor.
If this is true, I think Cranston would be exellent as Luthor, but I'm not really sure I want the same older Luthor. Every Luthor in the movies has been older and while I think Cranston would be absolutely perfect, especially after Breaking Bad, but I don't know what I want in Luthor this time. I certainly don't want a Luthor that comes up with real estate schemes. I do want to see Luthor in the power suit though. I know this would never happen, but I'd love to see Rosenboum as Luthor again. But, yeah, Cranston would negate my feelings against Afleck for sure.
