Cosmic Book News reports that Cranston has been cast in the "Man of Steel" sequel/ "Batman vs. Superman" movie as Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor.
News of Cranston stepping into the role of another baddie might soften the blow (for those it bothered) that Ben Affleck has been cast as the Dark Knight. Well, fellow nerds, we had better get used to the idea of Affleck as Batman, because he has reportedly signed a deal for 13 appearances, to Cranston's reported six as Luthor.
The news of Cranston portraying one of DC Comics most infamous villains is said to be made official after "Breaking Bad" ends. The sequel is set for a summer 2015 release date.
And please keep in mind that we're talking about news that's gained traction on the Internet, so if this is wrong, well, don't blame us.
