RUMOR: Bryan Cranston a Possible Favorite to Portray Lex Luthor in Man of Steel Sequel

This bit certainly belongs in the "file-it-away-and-see-what-shakes-out" folder but super-duper-Latino scooper, El Mayimbe, has thrown out some tweets today indicating that Cranston, best know for his role on AMC's Breaking Bad, may just be one of the leading candidates to portray the bald arch-enemy of Superman when the Batman/Superman movie hits theaters in 2015.

 El Mayimbe tweets: elmayimbe ‏@elmayimbe 2h FANBOY BLIND ITEM: Which superhot actor finishing final season of hit TV show who also was in 2 films for WB is up for juicy badguy part? :)

 elmayimbe ‏@elmayimbe 2h In fact, this actor is in this studio's tentpole which comes out next summer. :)

 elmayimbe ‏@elmayimbe 1h FINAL CLUE FOR Y'ALL FANBOY KNUCKLEHEADS WHO CAN'T TAKE A HINT: This actor played a bad guy (embarrassed that he did) on the POWER RANGERS. 

Clearly a reference to Cranston who will be staring in Godzilla for Warner Bros. next summer. We'll have to see how this one shakes out, but this is a choice I could be happy with. IF Cranston is Luthor we will certainly be moving away from the real estate tycoon-buffoon we have seen before.
