We thought we had a done deal?!
Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston was reportedly shaved and ready to go as the next Lex Luthor for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman flick!
But new reports this week suggest Joaquin Phoenix is being considered to play the part of the evil villain!
Sources say Warner Bros. is tapping the Oscar-nominated actor for an unspecified role in the superhero franchise. But studio insiders say Joaquin is being offered the part of the main antagonist in the Man of Steel sequel!
And we all know who Superman’s main antagonist is!
The feature film is set to open on July 17, 2015 and will star Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as the crime fighting cohort.
But even if Joaquin DOES get the role, will he even want it?!
We also hear that he’s considering passing on the part in order to be in Gus Van Sant’s pic Sea of Trees!
OMG! This is so hard! Who would we rather see as Lex Luthor?! Joaquin would be SO good but after seeing him play wicked Walter White, we SO want to see a bald Bryan Cranston again!
You decide, Perezcious readers!
