Bradley Cooper as Lex Luthor?
Not really sure how I feel about this news. Was Kevin Spacey so hard to get for a minor appearance? Honestly he made the last Superman movie for me. Without him it was really kind of dull and boring. Sorry, but Superman just doesn’t have the angst and pull of Batman or Spiderman. This Supes verses Doomsday image from the Superman T Shirts.
Bradley Cooper I find entertaining in comedies, but I don’t know if he can pull off a serious villain roll. My big worry is that given an actor known for comedy the director and writers will be drawn to making Lex Luthor the comedy relief. Big mistake in my opinion. There can be a certain amount of humor from him, but he can’t be made into a big joke. Although I have to say I am intrigued by the idea of Bradley Cooper completely bald. Will he man up and shave his scalp, or go the wimpy route with one of those skin caps?
