Jackie Earle Haley Up For Lex Luthor In Batman Vs. Superman?



Today sees the release of the Man of Steel Blu-Ray, so perhaps it's fitting that a batch of Lex Luthor rumors for Batman Vs. Superman hit the net.

Earlier today, Terry O'Quinn was named as a possible contender for Lex Luthor in Batman Vs. Superman, and we were told Tom Hanks is being considered.

Now Latino Review has it that Watchmen's Jackie Earle Haley has tried out for a role in the movie, but didn't end up getting the part.

While the role is not specifically named, it's speculated it was for Lex Luthor.

The rumors of the new actors for Lex Luthor follow our news that Bryan Cranston bowed out and Mark Strong might be too busy for the role.

"Batman Vs. Superman" has a July 17, 2015 release starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
