UPDATE: Would You Want Michael C. Hall To Play Lex Luthor In Man Of Steel?
Incomplete evidence suggests Michael C. Hall may be playing Superman's arch nemesis in Man Of Steel! Hit the jump to find out more!
So while browsing on the site today, a fellow CBM member by the name of TheAwesomeAvenger456 pointed something out. He claimed to have been browsing on the Man Of Steel's Wikipedia page and stumbled upon some startling news. Now TheAwesomeAvenger456 recognized Wikipedia isn't the most reliable source as I'm sure we all do, but its still worth a look.
So here it is guys:
And there you have it, according to Wikipedia Michael C. Hall has been cast as Lex Luthor. Right now its pure speculation until its officially confirmed, that is even if it is officially confirmed before the release of the film. Still so close to the release you can help but wonder, is this legit?
For those who are not familiar with Michael C. Hall, he plays the title character in Showtime's Dexter.
After being posted on Wikipedia it has now been removed. I for one can't help but wonder whether this is down to false information being posted or Warner Bros requesting for it to be taken down. Again unless its officially confirmed before the films release we will just have to wait until June 14th to find out.
Along with Hall's name being removed, a few other actors have also been removed from the Wikipedia page. Those actors include Michael Kelly as Steve Lombard, Alessandro Juliani as Sergeant Sedowsky and Mackenzie Gray as Jax-Ur. Thanks to fellow CBMer MrShumway, we have proof that Mackenzie Gray is indeed playing Jax-Ur. So the question is, why remove his name from Wikipedia?
Since being removed yesterday the list of additional cast members have been posted once again on the Man Of Steel's Wikipedia page, but this time with extended information. According to the description, Bradley Cooper initially auditioned for the role, but things fell through when Bradley was reluctant to dye his hair red. Again, there is little credibility to this information and as of now it has yet to be confirmed or debunked.
Once again Mackenzie Gray and Michael C. Hall have been removed from the Man Of Seel's Wikipedia page, this time being removed a lot faster than before.
Can you see Michael C. Hall playing Lex Luthor in the Man Of Steel? Do you reckon there is any truth behind these appearing then disappearing members of the cast on the Wikipedia page? Let us know what you think below in the comments.
