UPDATE: Has Bryan Cranston Been Confirmed For 'Lex Luthor' In MAN OF STEEL 2

Yes, this old chestnut - but now we have some fairly reliable sources claiming that the Breaking Bad actor has indeed signed on to star as Superman's most dauntless foe in Zack Snyder's sequel to Man Of Steel. They also claim to have info on Ben Affleck's Bat-suit.

UPDATE: AMC's John Campea has posted some clarification of this "confirmation" to his Facebook page. Basically...it's bullshit.

"TEAM AMASIAN wasn't trying to be deceptive at all. They just jumped the gun and started using the wrong terminology... like "confirmed". It's not confirmed. They are not professional movie bloggers and simply made a rookie mistake. As a result, for now we've set the video they recorded as "private"."


The Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor rumors have been flying around for quite a while, and when he was said to have been confirmed for the role by a certain horseshit spouting site that shall not be named, we all figured there was no way it would actually happen. But, now AMC offshoot podcast Team Amasian are claiming that they've 100% confirmed that Cranston will play the villain in the Batman Vs. Superman themed sequel to Man Of Steel. The ladies say they can't reveal their sources, but the same ones also claim that Ben Affleck will sport an Alex Ross inspired Batman costume in the movie. They definitely seem pretty certain it's a done deal, but of course until it's OFFICIALLY a done deal we'll have to take it as rumor. Also, it's worth noting that AMC's John Campea took to Twitter last week claiming a couple of "untested sources" revealed to him that Cranston would play Luthor. The lady on the right in the video is Campea's wife - take from that what you will, but there is every chance this is a lot of misinformation. Check out the vid for yourselves and sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.

batmanvsuperman - 1/7/2014, 7:19 AM
I hope its true I wouldn't mind
Interestein - 1/7/2014, 7:20 AM
I hope this is true, he's gonna kill it! I would have liked Mark Strong, but he'd be a better Black Mask IMO.
Interestein - 1/7/2014, 7:21 AM
Idris Elba would've been interesting too.

Lex Luthor. King of METHTROPOLIS.

JoeMomma29 - 1/7/2014, 7:25 AM
I hope so, his performance in Breaking Bad was one of the best in my opinion. Granted he will be older but I am fine with that.
Jollem - 1/7/2014, 7:25 AM
so then, a little bit of this



and a little bit of this



cranston or phoenix would be great
MrCBM56 - 1/7/2014, 7:25 AM
TOO OLD. I really wanted Joaquin Phoenix.

He's still a good choice, but I hope he doesn't get it.

Superman. King of Metropolis

knocturnalzen10 - 1/7/2014, 7:28 AM

6of13 - 1/7/2014, 7:30 AM
I really want Joaquin Phoenix to play Lex. If anyone can bring a seething but quiet hatred for Superman, it's JP.
JoeMomma29 - 1/7/2014, 7:30 AM
Love this guy!

Ok but it would be cool if he could commissioner gordon
kevberg - 1/7/2014, 7:33 AM
Cranston is good. not a bad choice if true.
JJJameson - 1/7/2014, 7:34 AM
This is good news. Here's me hoping Zack Snyder won't mess this up.
MrCBM56 - 1/7/2014, 7:34 AM
So far, some of the most crucial characters to the DCU are older.
Superman-33
Batman- I'm guessing late 30's early 40's
Lex Luther-Early 50's late 40's??

Wonder Woman is still young for obvious reasons.

I don't know. I'm still excited!

MexicanSuperman - 1/7/2014, 7:34 AM
I don't believe this.
AstonishingArachnid - 1/7/2014, 7:35 AM
A bit old for Lex but as long as he can pull it off Im fine. I wonder how long after Man of Steel, BvS is going to be set.
SuperCat - 1/7/2014, 7:35 AM
MexicanSuperman - 1/7/2014, 7:36 AM
@Zauri, well he didn't mess up the first time.
MrReese - 1/7/2014, 7:36 AM
I'm ok with this.It's Mr.White ffs! XD
MrCBM56 - 1/7/2014, 7:36 AM
Am I the only one who likes Cranston role as Hal from a Malcolm in the Middle more than Walter from Breaking Bad?

I love him in comedy more I guess.
Jollem - 1/7/2014, 7:37 AM
JoeMomma29 - 1/7/2014, 7:38 AM
I am not sure how many of you watched Breaking Bad, but to see Cranston take that character and make him from a mild mannered Science teacher to a Ruthless Killer is amazing. If this is true I am confident he will knock it out of the park.
kevberg - 1/7/2014, 7:38 AM
I dont know who he pissed off, But Jason Issacs would be a great Lex if he hasnt disappeared.

ManCalledSting - 1/7/2014, 7:39 AM
Again???? C'mon really? He's to damn old for Lex. He's a great actor, and would be a great Comm. Grodon. Someone like Mark Strong, or even Pheonix would be great. People keep this alive simply bcuz they saw him bald for many years. If Superman is in his mid 30's, and Bats is in his early to mid 40's, then that's about how old Lex should be. Not pushing 60.
Nomis - 1/7/2014, 7:39 AM
Cool dude, Great actor....too OLD for Lex.
JoeMomma29 - 1/7/2014, 7:40 AM
Even Gusto is happy with this choice.

knocturnalzen10 - 1/7/2014, 7:43 AM
P.S BRUCE WON'T BE ABLE TO TAKE TOO DAMAGE IN A ROSS SUIT SMH
ALmazing - 1/7/2014, 7:43 AM
Mos2: Breaking Superman. .. I would have liked to see somebody younger but if this turns out to be true he'll do well I suppose.
batmanvsuperman - 1/7/2014, 7:44 AM
Oldgreg.. u are right but we will see
Gyasiman - 1/7/2014, 7:44 AM
Would be cool, but he's WAY to old for Lex Luthor. Him and Clark are suppose to be counterparts. ( Superhuman to regular human of course)
whoa123 - 1/7/2014, 7:45 AM



Hope it's true!
themidnightking - 1/7/2014, 7:45 AM
Maybe he is doing mo-cap and voice work for Darkseid
GeekyCheekyChic - 1/7/2014, 7:46 AM
Would have zero problem with Cranston as Lex and when it comes to John Campea and the Amasian girls...they do in fact have solid sources to draw upon and they carry credibility
JoeMomma29 - 1/7/2014, 7:46 AM
themidnightking - 1/7/2014, 7:49 AM
I'm so excited! All hail Heisen-Luthor!
