    Terry O'Quinn would be an awesome Lex!

    Just as long as they don't name him Leo Lennon from the Daily Star.

    I see Man Of Steel is an even bigger failure than Star Trek Into Darkness ;)

    I want him as Doctor Strange, although I suppose those aren't mutually exclusive.

    Honestly, I think Vin Diesel would be a fantastic Lex Luthor.


    Or Gina Carano.

    No, I think Vin Diesel would be a terrible Gina Carano.

    Do you want to break the Internet? Just cast Angela Basset and burn the Internet to the ground.

    It always cracks me up when comic book fans suggest actors with shaved heads or certain color hair for certain roles.

    You DO realize actors have the ability to shave their head or dye their hair, right?? They don't just have to pick the ones who already have that look.

    Bryan Cranston WAS suggested. So not everyone suggested was bald...I believe he has continued to shave his head for "Breaking Bad" correct? Plus Greg suggested Cumberbatch for Luthor as well. So not everyone went the bald actor route.

    When I suggested Billy Zane, it wasn't just because he looked the part, it was also because I thought he had the kind of ego and cocky demeanor you'd expect from Lex Luthor, so it wouldn't be a stretch for him to play the character. He would have been ideal. One thing I don't like is when the wrong actor gets a part just because they're a big name.

    Love that avatar Nerys Myk. :lol:

    I remember when some fans stupidly kept insisting that the wrestler Triple H should play Thor.:wtf:

    I agree entirely. Zane would have been an example of someone both looking the part and being able to play it perfectly.

    I think that Zane is another good choice too.

    I would like to see Lex introduced while not being the major villain in the next movie. Something similar to the type of role he played in the opening Brainiac arc in the Action Comics reboot would be my preference.
