New JUSTICE LEAGUE Plot Details; WB Looking At African American Actors For Lex Luthor?

A new report claims that the Justice League will be a "United Nations" of superheroes, with each member of the team representing a different part of the world, while Denzel Washington, Idris Elba and Arrow's David Ramsey have all been considered for 'Lex Luthor' in Batman Vs. Superman...


Think McFly Think are reporting that their Warner Bros. source (who told them about David Goyer writing the Man of Steel sequel and Gotham being developed for TV) has now given them an update on the casting process for Lex Luthor in Batman Vs. Superman. Denzel Washington (2 Guns) was apparently the top choice, although "nothing ever materialized", and Idris Elba (Thor: The Dark World) was considered before his deal with Marvel Studios put an end to that idea before it even really got started. However, one actor who has been approached is Arrow's David Ramsey. The site points out that this doesn't mean Luthor will definitely be played by an African American actor.

They also claim to have some details on the planned Justice League movie, saying that the team will be portrayed as the "United Nations" of superheroes. Apparently, "The concept we’ve heard plays Superman represents the world as a whole (Being an immigrant of Earth he speaks for everyone), Batman would represent the United States with the American Affleck in the cape-and-cowl with the Flash possibly portrayed by an Hispanic or Laitno actor and as we saw announced yesterday an Wonder Woman played by an Israeli." Presumably, Wonder Woman would represent Paradise Island, and this would without a doubt help to differentiate the franchise from The Avengers. It would also line up with the sort of political overtones Goyer brought to the Batman movies he worked on and Man of Steel. For now though, take this all with a pinch of salt!
