Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has reportedly been cast as Lex Luthor for the Superman\Batman film slated for a July 2015 release. Cranston has reportedly signed on with Warner Bros. for a six picture deal. Look for Lex Luthor to appear in any Warner/DC superhero film as did Samuel Jackson’s Nick Fury in the Marvel films universe.
No official word from Warner Bros. or Bryan Cranston’s PR people as confirming the news yet. Cosmic Book News states that an official announcement of Cranston’s casting will apparently be scheduled after the Breaking Bad series finale is broadcast,
Mark Strong was also in the running for the Luthor role but an insider at Warner's said they would like him to return as Sinestro in a future film.
Another rumor going around is that Matt Damon is up for the roles of Aquaman or Martian Manhunter. Aquaman fits Damon better if this is true. My casting of him would be the new Green lantern as he fits that role perfectly.
