It seems speculation about Bryan Cranston being cast as Lex Luthor has just gone from rumour to real, with a report that heíll star in the Man of Steel sequel and beyond.

The Breaking Bad star has reportedly signed for at least a six-appearance deal, and possibly as many as ten. Thatís a lot of movies, but remember that these may not all be directly Superman films Ė Warner Bros is building its DC universe to rival Marvelís, so we could see him popping up anywhere.

Apparently the official announcement is to be made after the finale of Breaking Bad, however weíd expect it may come sooner if this leak is legitimate.

The same report also claims that Ben Affleck has signed a 13-appearance deal as Batman. Again, this could be a sign that Warner is heating up the DC machine for a big output in the coming few years.

Mark Strong has also been rumoured for the Lex Luthor role, however his role as Sinestro in Green Lantern is said to have played against him, as he may make another appearance as the villain somewhere down the line.

Does this mean we could see a Bryan Cranston and Ben Affleck showdown? Itís looking very likely.

Hang on hang on, that same post says Matt Damon is up for Aquaman? Doesn't that discredit the whole thing?

I still think they may cast Bryan Cranston, since along with Mark Strong he is up for the villain roles in everything these days. Can't say he made any impact as the baddy in Total Recall...

Affleck signed for 13 movies? That'll take him into his 70s.

Knew it - http://social.entertainment.msn.com/movies/blogs/post--keep-your-hair-on-bryan-cranston-is-not-lex-luthor

Their 'signed for 13 movies' comment is spookily identical to what I said.
