Could Mark Strong Be Man Of Steel’s Lex Luthor?

While Lex Luthor might not have made an appearance in Man Of Steel his presence was most certainly felt thanks to the Lex Corp banners being bandied all over the place.  So it seems a fair assumption that the bald, mastermind nemesis of Superman might turn up to give Kal-El a spot of bother in the upcoming sequel.  Of course since it was announced that the next Man Of Steel film would also include Batman little mention has been given to who might be the film’s villain.  But given Strong has played a part in the DC universe before, in the forgettable Green Lantern, Digital Spy asked Strong if there was a chance he could cross franchises in order to play Lex Luthor.  In what could be a very interesting development, Strong simply replied “All I can say is….watch this space”.  Given his balding appearance and penchant for villainous turns in various films it’s hard to think of an actor better suited to play Lex Luthor.  We’ll be watching this space with much anticipation for the hopeful announcement of Man Of Steel to face Mr. Strong. Before any of that though Stron will next be seen in opposite Brian Cox in Mindscape.  Source – Digital Spy

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
