Couldn't be any happier about it.

@MCUKnight11 - He's young, smug, and very pompous. It's perfect casting.

@MasterMix - Gunn has said Rosenbaum is his model for Lex.....so I expect the DCU's Lex to be very similar to the Smallville Lex in some ways...which I'm all for.

He's a pretty versatile actor so I'm glad he got the role.

@ModHaterSLADE - Same here. I'm hoping we get a solid Lex Luthor similar to Smallville's.

This movie's casting has been amazing. A great cast is a major part of what makes a movie good, so thankfully he understands that, unlike another director I won't name.

@Th3Batman - They hit it out of the park with the casting of the movie...no doubt about that.

Oh what a lovely day.

I’ve always really liked this guy and thought he had a lot of range. He’ll do a good job.

Plz give us a serious Lex and not the goofy looney toon Lex we've been getting since the OG.
JustAWaffle
JustAWaffle - 12/11/2023, 1:03 PM
@HashTagSwagg - I really hope so too.

MarkCassidy - 12/11/2023, 12:57 PM
He's very young for Lex. I do trust Gunn on casting, though, so I'm sure he has something interesting planned.

@MarkCassidy - I always thought Lex should be older than Supe to show he’s had more real world experience. Billy Zane would have been my choice

@Matchesz - He's been the obvious choice for a lot of people for years.
TheLight
TheLight - 12/11/2023, 6:42 PM
@MarkCassidy - To be fair, Michael Rosenbaum's Lex on Smallville was only 5yrs older than Clark so this isn't something new. It helps to have a Lex that has some sage while at the same time still virile to take on physical challenges.
TheLight
TheLight - 12/11/2023, 6:45 PM
@Matchesz - Billy Zane was my dream choice for Lex. But he's far too old for the role.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 12/11/2023, 12:57 PM
Sweet!!.

Looking forward to seeing him as Lex , I think he’ll do well in the role.

Michael Cera was my top pick, boy got completely shredded this year.

I wanna see a somewhat buff Lex similar to the animated series.
eddyxx
eddyxx - 12/11/2023, 1:03 PM
@SirDuckAlot - Hoult has a good height and frame. I could easily see him getting buff for the role.
Nomis929
Nomis929 - 12/11/2023, 1:03 PM
@SirDuckAlot - Well, he could've call Dave Bautista since he's using all his old GOTG cast.



You know what...I posted that pic of him as a joke...but he would'nt been such a bad choice.
GhostDog
GhostDog - 12/11/2023, 1:04 PM
@SirDuckAlot - or like All-Star Superman, Lex.

Th3Batman - 12/11/2023, 1:19 PM
@Nomis929 - Bane.

@Nomis929 - Bautista will be Lexcorp's head of security and Lex's right-hand man. Otis

😎 Nice.

Shame they couldn't find an American though.

Hopefully he's next...
GhostDog
GhostDog - 12/11/2023, 1:03 PM
He should kill it.

Hope we see a lot of All Star Lex Luthor. I get the sense Gunn, given his sensibilities, will lean into Lex as a megalomaniac and evil genius. The sci-fi aspects of his genius as an inventor.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 12/11/2023, 1:10 PM
@GhostDog - I could see that

If I’m not mistaken , he’s said All Star and Birthright are both influences for him on this and that has Lex as a scientific genius too

Plus given the closeness in age with Hoult being 34 and Corenswet being 30 , I wouldn’t be surprised if Lex & Clark know each other from childhood like in Birthright
