For months now we’ve been hearing about potential candidates for the role of Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman vs. Superman. From Mark Strong to Joaquin Phoenix, several big name actors have been rumored for the part. One name that keeps persisting though is Bryan Cranston. While we haven’t received confirmation from the studio (or any other official source), according to Amasian News, Cranston has been cast in the role and will be making a handsome salary.
Of course, this news comes from an unnamed source and should be taken with a grain of salt, but with the Breaking Bad actor’s name continuing to pop up in relation to the role, it is certainly intriguing. Plus, Cranston seems to be the fan favorite right now and considering that he’s incredibly talented and has shown that he can play a great villain, it is entirely likely that Warner Bros. has signed him for the film.
