INT. METROPOLIS – DAY Superman is in a restaurant having what looks to be a fairly expensive meal with Batman. Batman is scrolling through an app on his phone and Superman is visibly annoyed. SUPERMAN: Do you have to do that right now? BATMAN: Do I have to do what right now? SUPERMAN: Look at whatever you’re looking at on your phone. We’re having dinner? I thought this could just be a nice dinner. BATMAN: Oooooookay. [pause] You could mention something to me before you get angry, though. Next time. Like, I don’t know why you always wai– BRYAN CRANSTON: Hello, you two. I’m not Walter White anymore! Now I’m Lex Luthor! BATMAN AND SUPERMAN: WHAAAAAAAAAT?! Scene. From The Independent:
Superhero fans have barely recovered from the news that Ben Affleck is to play Batman opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman in the impending Man Of Steel sequel. But now it has been reported that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston will play Lex Luthor in the rebooted DC Comics franchise.
Having played chemist-turned-meth kingpin Walter White in the hugely popular AMC drama for five series, Cranston has plenty of evil nemesis experience to draw on.
According to Comic Book News he has signed a deal with movie studios for at least six appearances as villainous businessman and political mogul Luthor in the DC Universe.
Wait, everyone is reporting this as fact because someone told it to Cosmic Book News? Uh. Well, whatever! #thisishowwedoit Bryan Cranston is Lex Luthor! And for those of you who haven’t gotten the chance to glance quickly at the Lex Luthor wikipedia page, he seems like something along the lines of an evil Robert Downey Jr.? Wears a skeleton suit and doesn’t have any powers, something like that? I’m sure that’s all correct. So. Is Bryan Cranston the right guy for the skeleton suit?! Sound off in the comments! (JK.) (I’m sure he’ll be great, he is a very good actor.)
