I don't get the Cranston thing. Just because a guy can act and is willing to shave his head, it does not necessarily follow that he would be a good Lex Luthor.
Cranston might have been good in the role, but it's too soon after Breaking Bad to do another baldie.
If that's the only qualifier, how about Patrick Stewart?
I'm a big fan of the stuff Bat In The Sun does. I hope WB have come up with a suit for Affleck that is close to being this cool.
