Bryan Cranston responds to Lex Luthor rumours

Ever since Batman vs. Superman was announced at Comic-Con, rumours have been swirling surrounding potential casting, including Bryan Cranston as a potential fit for Lex Luthor.

Cranston himself has now responded to the speculation, responding with a mischievous "give me a call" when asked whether he’d be interested in playing the role.

"I like Lex Luthor," continues Cranston. "I think he’s misunderstood. He’s a loveable, sweet man."

However, one stumbling block might be a return to the bald head sported by Cranston during the filming of Breaking Bad , a look that proved unpopular with his wife.


"She wasn’t so keen on the bald head," Cranston admits. “The bald head ages a man. It’s just that she didn’t know me that way."

"The last six years it’s all of a sudden like sleeping with a stranger — who was less exciting than her own husband. So I don’t blame her for being upset."
