Bryan Cranston denies Man of Steel 2 Rumors. Following the announcement that Ben Affleck will be the next Bruce Willis / Batman in Superman vs. Batman (2015), rumors began about Lex Luthor and Bryan Cranston. The flames were fanned by a fan trailer for the upcoming sequel film depicting the actor as Lex Luthor. Cranston recently announced that all the conjecture is false.
From a recent interview:
Asked whether there was truth to the claims he had signed up for as many as six DC movies, Cranston replied: “Six? This is all news to me. 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.”
If Lex Luthor is in the film, that role has yet to be cast. Cranston might still portray the bald bad guy.
Batman vs. Superman stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne.
