Vin Diesel Up for Lex Luthor in Superman?

CHUD reports that, with the hiring of producer Neal Moritz (“The Fast and the Furious,” “XXX”), Warner Bros. might be looking at Vin Diesel…

Warner Bros. has obviously decided they want to make their megabudget Supes movie cool for “the kids”, and with Moritz’s involvement comes the desire to place Vin Diesel in the role of criminal mastermind Lex Luthor (a role previously linked to everyone from Kevin Spacey to Johnny Depp). With the Chronicles of Riddick franchise turning out to not actually be one (hey, I liked it), getting into another high-profile gig with a built-in recognition factor may not be such a bad idea for the Vin-man.
