Bryan Cranston Will Not be Lex Luthor

Put those tissues away and pull up your pants because those rumors of Bryan Cranston being cast as Lex Luthor for the next Man of Steel are false.

The story being picked up everywhere claims Cranston has signed on for 6 – 10 appearances as Lex Luthor and that Ben Affleck has signed for 13 film appearances as Batman. That should have been a big tip-off that the news was a joke. The article also stated Matt Damon was being considered for Aquaman or Martian Manhunter. According to MSN, the site which the story originated from a fan website known for putting out fake stories for hits.

Apparently the rumors started with an offhanded comment Branston made when he was asked if he’d play Luthor. “Give me a call. I like Lex Luthor,” Cranston told a reporter.

Granted, there’s no doubt that Cranston would make an amazing Lex Luthor. It wouldn’t even be that far off from his Breaking Bad character. They should sign him anyway. This’ll save everyone from having to hear the fanboys whine about George Clooney playing Lex Luthor or whoever. I rather my eyes not bleed for the next year.
