Bryan Cranston cast as Lex Luthor in 'Man of Steel' sequel - Report

"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston may have been cast in the role of Lex Luthor in the "Man of Steel" sequel, according to reports. If true, this means that Cranston will play the ultimate Superman foe in at least six DC superhero movies.

Cosmic Book News cites an unidentified source for its information about Cranston. The website had previously reported that the Lex Luthor role had been cast, but no details were available. Now, it appears that Cranston has the role -- he will appear in some capacity as the super-villain in at least six films. That number could rise as high as 10, if DC gets to make as many films as it wants.

Cranston's casting is not expected to be formally announced until around the time of the series finale of "Breaking Bad" on Sept. 29.

These wouldn't be major roles in all of the films. Much like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the Marvel superhero films, Cranston's Luthor would only have to appear briefly on screen in some cases. While Lex Luthor is reportedly going to be part of the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel (featuring Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill returning as Superman), the nature of his specific role in the film is unknown.

That's pretty cool. He has really evolved into a super villian on Breaking Bad. It's still crazy sometimes to see sweet little Hal from Malcolm in the Middle being as ruthless as his character has become, but I guess everything changes over time.
