Rumors continue to surface regarding the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, which is reportedly going to focus on Superman going toe to toe with Batman. However, it seems like neither of the heroes will serve as the antagonist in the film, given that there are rumors surfacing that actor Mark Strong is in line for the role of Lex Luthor.
Digital Spy recently brought up the rumors during an interview with Strong, and the actor’s response was “All I can say is… watch this space.”
It is surprising that the actor didn’t deny nor confirm the rumors, which is either him just playing games or an indication that they are currently in talks for said role. In any case, Strong’s already got the look (the bald look) down pat, and his performance in Kick-Ass shows that he can pull off the intelligent mastermind villain well, without veering into cheesy territory.
