Bryan Cranston has denied the internet rumours which claim he’ll star as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.


The internet has been linking the Breaking Bad star’s name with the superhero film for a while now but Cranston believes there’s a simple explanation for this.

“I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I’m known to be bald. ‘What bald guy can we get?'”

Cranston set the record straight regarding his involvement in the Superman films in an interview with

“The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him.”

We think Cranston might be underselling himself here. We know he’s got the grit to play a seriously sinister Lex Luthor after his turn as Walter White in the award winning Breaking Bad. We’ve still got our fingers crossed for a Cranston Luther !
