Mark Strong Hints at Lex Luthor Casting for Superman/Batman Film

After the LexCorp Easter Eggs in Man of Steel, fans have been demanding that Lex Luthor show up in the sequel to the film. While this has never been officially mentioned on the part of the studio or the filmmakers, it seems like a logical addition to the cast, though the announcement of Batman has certainly overshadowed it.

As we continue to hear rumors of who might play the caped crusader, Digital Spy spoke with actor Mark Strong about rumors that he might be playing Lex Luthor in the sequel to which he replied: “All I can say is… watch this space.”

The addition of Strong into the film will certianly rule out any chance that 2011′s Green Lantern takes place in this DC cinematic universe, as Strong played Sinestro. What do you think about Strong in the role?

Little is known about the upcoming Superman/Batman movie, but David Goyer is currently co-writing the story with director Zack Snyder. Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will return. Warner Bros. is aiming for production to begin next year with a summer 2015 release date targeted.
