DEBUNKED: Bradley Cooper Will Not Be Playing Lex Luthor In Zack Snyder's MAN OF STEEL
This was a pretty wild rumor that I'm surprised is still making the rounds but it appears that it's simply not true, Cooper will not be Lex Luthor.

And there you have it. I'm definitely inclined to believe the words of an industry veteran like Kurt Orzeck over the site where this rumor originated. While Cooper definitely has his fans out there, I personally think he isn't right for the role. Who would you guys like to see portray Lex Luthor on the big screen? If Luthor does not cameo in the first Superman reboot and the film is a success, it's a strong likelihood that Luthor will show up in a sequel. Hopefully we get the manipulative, evil mastermind from the comics and not the camp, real estate tycoon we've previously seen in prior Superman films.
Man of Steel is an upcoming superhero film under the development of Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and David S. Goyer. Based on the DC Comics character Superman, the film will be a reboot of the Superman film series. Using Chicago and Vancouver as a backdrop, with production to be based in west suburban Plano, the film entered principal photography in August 2011, for a planned theatrical release on June 14, 2013 by Warner Bros., which also includes IMAX venues.
