Bryan Cranston

As a devourer of movie culture, you probably caught the Cosmic Book News “story” that Bryan Cranston had been cast as Lex Luthor in Man of Steel 2: Ben Affleck Boogaloo, and you most definitely recognized that it didn’t pass the smell test. Six appearance deal for the baddie? Matt Damon as Aquaman? Thirteen appearances as Batman for Affleck? Right. It’s weird to think the scoop came from a site notorious for making things up.

But now that Rolling Stone has lazily broadcast the bullshit, simultaneously giving it credibility without lifting a finger to do any research, it becomes slightly more important to spread the word that Cranston hasn’t been cast in the role. Tell your excited Breaking Bad fans the news and be there to hold them or remind them to still hold out hope.

And if Cranston eventually does get cast, can I lobby for a non-bald Luthor? There’s nothing like watching a Superman movie and wondering why he’s battling Walter White.
