DC Comics News started off the weekend with a pretty awesome rumor, which would be even more awesome if it turned out to be true.
“Bryan Cranston and Mark Strong’s names have already popped up multiple times as contenders to play Lex Luthor due to their intense acting abilities and well-regarded bald heads.
If all turns out according to this source, once BREAKING BAD ends the current final eight episodes of it’s run on AMC, Cranston will be announced as the new Luthor. This leaves the door open for Strong to return as Sinestro from the already established GREEN LANTERN film.”
Cranston has already expressed interest in playing Superman’s archnemesis, and Strong has said in the past that he’d like to return to the role of Sinestro in order to chronicle his fall from grace in the Corps.
If this rumor ends up becoming fact, it could be part of the set-up for the long-awaited Justice League film as both villains have encountered members of the League several times. It could also mean that DC and Warner Bros. are finally catching up to Marvel’s MCU by (finally) trying to establish continuity across all films.
What do you think? Would you like to see Cranston as Luthor and Strong return as Sinestro?
