Bryan Cranston Reportedly Cast as Lex Luthor in ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel?

bryan cranstonI don’t think Bryan Cranston will drum up the same reaction that Ben Affleck did last week about his casting.  Cosmic Book News is reporting the Emmy-winning star of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” has been cast as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s upcoming sequel to Man of Steel that will feature Superman and Batman sharing a film.

According to the website, the deal is not set in stone as of yet and Warner Bros. is waiting until the series finale of “Breaking Bad” on September 29 to make the official announcement.  Little details were given but the word is he could sign on for at least six films as the villain.  Does that mean we’re getting SIX Man of Steel movies?  Or will they use him for this impending Justice League film in 2017?
