Bryan Cranston knows a little something about playing a bad guy, having owned the role of science-teacher-turned-meth-kingpin Walter White on AMC's “Breaking Bad” for five seasons.
Now he'll be taking those evil-doer acting skills to the big screen to play Superman's billionaire arch-nemesis Lex Luthor in the sequel to “Man of Steel,” according to a report from Cosmic Book News.
The site reports that Cranston may have signed a deal that includes at least six appearances.
The news comes a week after the announcement that Ben Affleck had officially signed on to play Batman in the same movie. Affleck's casting caused an online uproar from some upset Bat-fans. A change.org petition to remove Affleck from the Batman/Bruce Wayne role had amassed more than 80,000 signatures by this morning.
