RUMOR: “Reports” say Bryan Cranston may have been cast as Lex Luthor

August 26th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Bryan Cranston has been cast as Lex Luthor in the Man of Steel sequel, according to Cosmic Book News. It’s worth mentioning that they have a bad track record when it comes to this sort of thing and they have not revealed a source of any kind.

So you’ve been warned.

The Breaking Bad actor is said to have signed a deal which will see him in at least a six films and may be as high as ten.

The deal will be officially announced after the conclusion to the final season of Breaking Bad.

In other news linked to the next film, Ben Affleck is said to have agreed a 13 film deal for Batman.

Cosmic Book News said that DC are going to have all of their main characters appearing or at least mentioned in all of their movies to portray a more connected world than what Marvel Studios has done so far.

And if all this news isn’t enough for you to digest, DC are hoping to bring Matt Damon into the Justice League as either Aquaman or Martian Manhunter. Remember, he and Affleck are best friends!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
