Mark Strong hints at playing Lex Luthor in Batman/Superman
Will Lex Luthor turn up in the Batman/Superman movie? And is Mark Strong going to play him?
Lex Corp was referenced in this summer's Superman reboot, Man Of Steel, and it was assumed that the infamous villain would make an appearance in the follow up. Yet Man Of Steel 2 is more than a sequel now, given that it's effectively become the Batman/Superman movie. So: is Lex Luthor still likely to appear?
Mark Strong has been mentioned with regards the role previously, for a number of obvious reasons, and the folks at Digital Spy asked him about the links to Lex Luthor in a recent interview. So what did he have to say? Well, he said "All I can say is... watch this space".
Now there's clearly nothing overly revealing there, but then he had a chance to deny it, and didn't. Inevitably, something is going to be read into that. Mind you, could his appearance as Sinestro in Warner Bros/DC's Green Lantern be a fly in the ointment there, even if he was buried under no small amount of CG?
