RUMOR: MAN OF STEEL ‘s Lex Luthor Revealed?

A few weeks ago we brought you the latest rumor from WB’s MAN OF STEEL reporting that Lex Luthor and Brainiac would have short cameos in the flick. Well, in this latest bit of news from AICN, they’ve not only confirmed Lexy’s appearance in the movie…

“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 they’ve also named an actor: Mackenzie Gray. ¬†We’ve seen him before in the WB’s Smallville, in which he played an unfortunate clone of (you’ve guessed it) Lex Luthor! Could he really portray the villain on the big screen?


Heyo. I'm Nick Dourian, the Editor-In-Chief around these parts. Now, I went to a few other sites, read a few awesome bios, and I really want to fabricate a badass origins story for myself, but I'm feeling particularly unimaginative today, so 'f' that jazz. I read comics, drink bourbon, and cook meats. Imagine Ron Swanson, but with a fuller beard and cuter eyes.
