One person who has no problem with you thinking that he might be the next Lex Luthor is acclaimed British actor Mark Strong.
The "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Kick Ass" actor was previously rumored to be the top choice for the villain a few months ago. The other day Digital Spy asked him about that old report, and the response he gave has risen a few eyebrows:
"All I can say is... watch this space."
The word comes after recent rumors that "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston is in contention for the part. David S. Goyer is still currently writing the script though so offers aren't likely to have been made as yet.
