[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6419:]]This is at least the second or third Man of Steel rumor/spoiler to hit the net as of late.
First, an early screening stated that the Man of Steel conclusion revealed the silhouette of a man at the LexCorp building, obviously referring to a set up with Lex Luthor and the next Superman sequel.
Man of Steel writer David Goyer also recently wouldn't confirm or deny Lex Luthor being in the Man of Steel as well.
Now the latest actually has an actor's name attached to Lex Luthor.
AICN is reporting that Mackenzie Gray is playing Lex Luthor in the Man of Steel and it's said to be a substantial part, or at least more than a cameo as has been previously rumored.
A source reportedly gave them the name of Mackenzie Gray and stated this version of Lex will be "ambitious, ego driven and cold," not the Gene Hackman Donner version.
Smallville fans should also recognize Mackenzie Gray as he played one of the Luthor clones (pictured above-right).
So, is there any proof that Mackenzie Gray is in the Man of Steel? Yup.
AICN also dug up the following video which reveals Mackenzie Gray stating that he is in the Man of Steel, but he can't say what he is playing.
Think he is Lex?
Man of Steel opens June 14th in IMAX 3D directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Michael Shannon as Zod.
