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

<font color="red">UPDATE:</font> 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.
