There is a rumor floating around that Warner brothers has opened up the casting call for Lex Luthor in the Batman vs Superman/Man of Steel sequel movie to include black actors. This would be a huge casting move, though not unprecedented in the annals of comic book movies with characters like Nick fury and The Kingpin being changed from white to black in the transfer from page to screen. Those characters are not as iconic as Lex Luthor though. The casting of a black actor in the role would be huge and cause all sorts of attention for a film that is already hitting massive levels of media attention with every rumor and scrap of news that comes out.
So with the idea of black actors being bandied about for the role I decided to put together my list of four actors that could play a pretty spiffy Lex Luthor.
