For the past few weeks, the internet has circled around the idea that Bryan Cranston was going to play Lex Luthor for the upcoming Superman/Batman film. There is just one problem, no one told Bryan Cranston. According to Boston.com, the Breaking Bad star was just as a surprise as everyone else.
"I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I’m known to be bald. ‘What bald guy can we get?’ The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him.”
So the role of Luthor is still up in the air. Perhaps Mark Strong will be taking the role of the iconic baddie. In any case, this upcoming film will star Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
Maybe Cranston will take up the role; maybe he won't. We'll see. The Superman/Batman film will be hitting July 17,2015.
