Getting to Know Lex Luthor

by | April 20, 2006 | Comments

IGN FilmForce thought it might be a good idea to re-introduce us to one of comicdom’s most hated, and therefore most beloved, super-mega-villains. Click right here for a Luthor profile that, logically, focuses mainly on the actor playing the role. Gene Hackman‘s Lex Luthor remains a real treat, but Kevin Spacey? That’s some pretty inspired casting right there, Superfans.

From IGNFF: "For this new incarnation of Lex Luthor, Spacey was the first choice, right from the start. "We’d always written that role with him in mind," says (Bryan) Singer. "He’s an old friend and this is a great opportunity for all the obvious reasons.""

"It’s "the kind of character that’s more fun for him," says director Bryan Singer. "Each thing he’s doing is so funny, or so strange, or sinister, that it’s just fun for him. It’s a joy."

Lex will incite trouble, and lots of it. "There will be no lack of intensity," says Singer."It’ll probably be PG 13. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed at all in the level of intensity."

For the full article, head on over to FilmForce country.
