Has Mark Strong already been cast as Lex Luthor? And, now that Batman and Superman are included in this superhero sequel, how does Lex Luthor fit in? If the actor has in fact been cast, it will be an interesting choice since he previously played the DC villain Sinestro in Green Lantern.
In addition, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has also been rumored to be up for this coveted role, but it isn't known if any offers have been made yet, since David S. Goyer is still writing the script.
Production is scheduled to begin next year, with Zack Snyder directing and Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane reprising their roles from Man of Steel.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
