A recent report claims that Bryan Cranston is already cast as Lex Luthor in the Superman-Batman flick. While there is no confirmation yet from Warner Bros., a fan is already excited about it and has made a special teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated movie with the "Breaking Bad" actor seen as the villain that has come into conflict with both DC heroes in comics.
Cranston, who admitted in an interview that he was interested in tackling the said role, appears near the end of the trailer from YouTube user Soylent Brak 1. Though his presence is brief, the way he is featured seemingly promises that Cranston will make a perfect Lex Luthor. The video also gives an unofficial look at Ben Affleck, the new Batman depicter in Zack Snyder's next pic.
The decision to cast Affleck as the Caped Crusader has sparked fan outrage, with an online petition having been launched to urge the studio to drop him. Many celebs have commented on the casting and come to his defense. Among them is Matt Damon, who is rumored to play Batman's sidekick, Robin.
"It will be terrific ... You know, he's not playing King Lear. It's Batman! Certainly within his skill set," he told the Times of India. "Bruce Wayne is the more challenging part of the role, and Ben will be great at that."
According to Latino Review, the production team is currently eyeing two locations to be the new Gotham City. The first is reportedly Detroit, Michigan with Morocco said to be the second option.
The "Man of Steel" sequel will bow out in theaters on July 17, 2015.
