Bradley Cooper Is Lex Luthor

Cosmic Book News says

We've been sent a tip on the new Superman movie, the Man of Steel.

Obviously we have no way to verify, so bear that in mind.

We were told after Paradise Lost bottomed out, that Bradley Cooper will appear as Lex Luthor in a cameo role in the Man of Steel.

I'm not convinced that he can play the role of a criminal mastermind. Bradley Cooper is an OK actor but I think there have to be better options out there.

pomoluese3928d ago

Yeah, plus I just don't think he can pull off being bald.

blacktiger3927d ago

I didn't read the article, But I'm assuming it's a rumour, because everyone knows Lex Luthor, and Bradley is not even close. Little would be nice, but not even close!

You know I like him but I've just never liked him in certain movies and that would be one of them. The other would of course be The Crow...I never thought he could pull off being Eric Draven either.

Crazyglues3927d ago

I can only assume they saw something in his reading that blew them away, because just like I would have never thought Keith ledger would be a good joker, the dark knight would prove me wrong..

So who knows.. maybe - I don't see it but I guess he is an actor, so he could surprise us..

Baka-akaB3927d ago (Edited 3927d ago )

then even even those wary of ledger's joker beforehands , usually knew he was still a stellar actor .

We have yet to see more than an ok and entertaining enough performance from Cooper . Could be it , but not yet there

Michael Shannon would've been mt choice. He'd be a creepy Luthor.

Goldenarmz3927d ago

Michael Shannon is playing General Zod in the movie.

LightofDarkness3927d ago

Haha, WTF! Better again. I honestly did not know that.

Lord_Sloth3927d ago

Nah. As much as I didn't care for Superman Returns, Kevin Spacey is the 2nd best Lex Luthor we've had to date. The best of which is, of course, Clancy Brown.

I don't wish to see Cooper as Luthor and I SURE as hell don't want him to go anywhere near the set of The Crow.

Crazay3927d ago

No worries on that front sir. He walked away from The Crow. I thought that Spacey was a really good Lex myself.

Scribe813927d ago

I'd agree that Spacey was a good Luthor, but I hated the movie.

Nice call on Clancy Brown. Kevin Conroy is still the best Batman as well in my opinion.

gaden_malak3927d ago

I thought Rosenbaum was the best Lex Luthor.

Lord_Sloth3927d ago

Rosenbaum certainly did a good job as Lex but I never cared much for the writing of Smallville and felt Lex wasn't an evil, heartless douche as we've all come to know and love.

gaden_malak3927d ago

He did shoot his father in cold blood...

Later on he got pretty ruthless.

Lord_Sloth3927d ago (Edited 3927d ago )

I've seen the whole series (my sister loves it and has all 10 seasons on DVD) and he never amounted to the Lex that I knew. The Lex that strangled a woman just to prove a point to a dead superman that he was back on top.

@ Baka-akaB
I never said it was his best performance. Just that he was the second best Luthor.

Baka-akaB3927d ago (Edited 3927d ago )

Hardly the best Spacey performance imo . It felt like he was channeling a parody of everything luthor seen on screen so far

This is all to get the teenie boppers into the theatre... exactly why I haven't been to the movies in AGES!
