RUMOR: Lex Luthor IS In MAN OF STEEL; Do We Know Who's Playing Him?

AICN reckon Superman's greatest foe will indeed be appearing, and not just get a mention in, Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel. They also have a name to go with this info, and as crazy as it sounds, there might just be a Smallville connection!

The following rumor seemed so far fetched at first, had it not come from a reliable source I wouldn't have even bothered with it. Harry over at AICN reckons he's uncovered information confirming Lex Luthor's appearance in Man Of Steel.

"Lots of people have been wondering if LEX LUTHOR was going to be in MAN OF STEEL.

The answer is apparently a very loud YES. Not only that the tone that Nolan/Goyer/Snyder are going for with the character is not the silly goofy Hackman Luthor... But an ambitious, ego driven and cold version of Luthor."

But that's not the unbelievable part. He was also given a name to go with: Mackenzie Gray - the same Mackenzie Gray who played a Lex Luthor clone in Smallville. So surely not right? Well, he's definitely in the movie! Skip to around the 1 minute mark.

I have no problem believing Luthor pops up in the film, I do however have a problem believing that they would cast anyone so closely associated with that character already from Smallville. But, here we are! If Gray isn't playing Luthor, who is he playing, and why all the secrecy? What do you guys make of this?
