The rumour mill has seriously started churning today, as reports that The Hangover star Bradley Cooper is set to appear in the Superman reboot Man of Steel as the famous Lex Luther. Zack Snyder has previously claimed that he wanted to take Man of Steel in a new direction, which had everybody wondering whether Lex Luther would be appearing in the movie, with no word until now.
We have know from the very beginning that General Zod was going to be the main villain in Man of Steel but it appears that Bradley Cooper will also be set to show his face as Lex Luther. It is unclear how big a part Lex Luther will play in Man of Steel, with many suggesting it will just be a cameo building up to a more prominent role in future sequels.
Currently though, this is all rumour and has not been officially confirmed but we would love to see Bradley Cooper as Lex Luther and a Superman movie would not be the same without the character. Man of Steel will see Henry Cavill take on the role of Clark Kent aka Superman with Michael Shannon portraying General Zod. The movie is set to be released on June 14, 2013.
