Lex Luthor Still Superman's Foe in 'Superman: The Man of Steel'


Kevin Spacey has been reported to reprise his role as the Superboy's friend-turned-Superman's forever nemesis, Lex Luthor, in the 'Superman' reboot.

The next "Superman" movie, "Superman: The Man of Steel", apparently will see once again Lex Luthor, the famed Superman villain which has appeared in most of the live-action films. Within an article from The Independent focusing on the interview with Kevin Spacey, it is revealed that the "Superman Returns" actor will reprise his role as the baddie in the reboot movie.

Part of the article read, "...the producers of the follow-up to Superman Returns...will be paying him big bucks to reprise his role as Lex Luthor next year." Mentioning that Spacey will return as Luthor next year in "Man of Steel", the article also ignites speculation that the production of the new "Superman" film may start sometime in 2009. Nevertheless, Warner Bros. Pictures have yet to let out confirmation or denial regarding both reports.

Back in August, Warner Bros. have announced that instead of moving on with a sequel to "Returns", they will start the project right from the scratch once again by doing a reboot on the franchise. "Superman [Returns] didn't quite work as a film in the way that we wanted it to," Warner Bros. Pictures Group President Jeff Robinov said. "It didn't position the character the way he needed to be positioned. Had Superman worked in 2006, we would have had a movie for Christmas of this year or 2009. But now the plan is just to reintroduce Superman without regard to a Batman and Superman movie at all."
