"It's not about being cool"...
Josh Brolin has discussed why he turned down the role of Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman. Brolin was linked with the role several times but ultimately Jessie Eisenberg was cast.
Brolin told Yahoo! Movies when asked, "Me and Zack [Snyder] had a conversation about it and there were several reasons why we said it wasn't the best idea on both sides. I had mine and Zack had his. To me it's not about being cool and all that stuff. Looking back over your shoulder and saying that one line everyone's going to remember? Maybe I could do that. But I do roles that aren't necessarily all that cool. All my stuff is a little off."
