Michael Rosenbaum Wants To Be Lex Luthor In Man of Steel 2


8978 With Man of Steel 2 looking like we'll get our first appearance by the Zack Snyder Lex Luthor, the rumors and talks surrounding the character are beginning to fly.

Our own DC Entertainment source provided us with information that Zack Snyder was looking at Mark Strong for Lex Luthor.

Another contender amongst the fans is also Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad and the new Godzilla movie. Cranston has been the top choice amongst a number of website polls for Lex Luthor in Man of Steel 2.

Now we can add another actor to the list, and it's Smallville alumnus Michael Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum took to his Twitter to respond to the Cranston as Lex choice, arguing in his own favor.

"Can the Superman fans out there spread the word that there's really no other choice. Let Cranston stick to meth. Thanks," he tweeted.

Michael Rosenbaum arguably portrayed the best Lex Luthor seen in television or any of the movies appearing on CW's Smallville for seven seasons as well as the show's finale.

We know that Zack Snyder is a fan of Smallville from previous comments back in May of 2011 where the director thanked the show for keeping Superman around.

Would having Michael Rosebaum as Lex Luthor be too much crossover from Smallville for audiences to bear?

Or would that be a good thing?
