^ Yeah, I think it's as un-Nolan-ish as you can get.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

If anything it's the studio going, hey lets add that up and coming guy who's a big name in our other franchise into Man of Steel somewhere.
It's the ole "Hey lets add Eddie Murphey to the next Trek" schtick from the 80's that Paramount wanted to do.

^ Or the Johnny Depp as Lex rumour, when McG was supposed to be directing.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I've nothing against Bradley Cooper and think he would actually make a pretty good Lex, but for this to come up and not been covered by any other site at this late stage of filming, yeah all the signs are of it being a rumour. It'd be cool if it were true. I just don't think it is. I think if Lex was going to be in the film, they would have announced the casting earlier when they announced every one else.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

^ Jeremy Renner shot his cameo for Thor after the rest of the movie had completed, which is why you don't see him interact in person with any other character. But I suppose it's not really a comparable situation, as they'd already signed him for The Avengers.

I like Cooper fine, I just don't see him as Lex.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Also though Renner's cameo in "Thor" was well known and covered. That seems to be the difference with this "story".

The rumors surrounding Sam Jackson in Iron Man didn't come until very late into the production from what I remember.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

The comments about Cooper in the role of Lex echo pretty strongly with the comments made about Ledger as Joker when it was announced. And look how that turned out.

...or, closer to home, "let's turn Superman III into a Richard Pryor movie."

That being said, Cooper doesn't seem like a bad actor. If he shaves his head and plays Lex as, well, Lex, I don't see a problem. If he goes on a "star trip," and insists on playing him with a full head of hair and a personality like an overgrown frat boy, that's a problem.

Lex doesn't have to have a shaved head when we see him.

If he wants I guess. It's up to Luthor I'm just saying that if we even see him in this at all or the sequel (which is more likely) he doesn't have to be bald when we do see him.

I've always saw that about him. He looks like a guy that brown nosed his way to the top
