Not a huge surprise...
Anyone who was excited about Bryan Cranston trading Walter White for Lex Luther...well, sorry. As had been reported last week, an unconfirmed rumor has pegged Cranston as playing the DC archvillain in Man of Steel 2 and five more films. The news hit just about every site out there, but there's just one problem: it wasn't true.
Cranston spoke with Boston.com and shot down the rumor, saying, "Six [movies]? This is all news to me. I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I'm known to be bald. ‘What bald guy can we get?' The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him."
So far the only people confirmed for the film are Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The film will release on July 17th, 2015.
