After all of the controversy surrounding the announcement that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman in the follow up to “Man of Steel”, today news broke that Bryan Cranston would be taking on the role of Lex Luthor.
Many of the concerns with Affleck portraying The Dark Knight surrounded the fact that many people felt he was a bit one direction in regards to his action. What’s great about Cranston, is that he has successfully flexed his comedic muscle as the father in “Malcom in the Middle” and has blown audiences away with his dramatic portrayl of Walter White in “Breaking Bad”.
Cranston is an actor with an incredible amount of range and there certainly doesn’t seem to be as much outcry for this news compared to the casting of Batman.
What are your thoughts on Bryan Cranston portraying Lex Luthor?
