, you best believe the plum roles are gonna be fought over, nail and cape. The newest - and personally, the best - rumor for the role of Lex Luthor is full-on Lex Luthor lookylikey Mark Strong! I mean, look at that picture, man! That could just be a drawing of Mark Strong. Maybe that’s what it is; Mark Strong was just strolling along the sidewalk in a real touristy area, and he decided to get a 10-minute portrait done by some guy hawking caricatures. Is it wrong that the resultant cartoon is a bit…sexy? If you like the juiceheads. If you’re the sort of kid who thought Belle should have just gone with Gaston.
