According to Variety, Zero Dark Thirty and 300: Rise Of An Empire star¬†Callan Mulvey is in the frame for the villain role in Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs Superman¬†sequel to 2013′s Man Of Steel.

He doesn’t exactly fit the traditional image of the older, balding Lex Luthor, but the younger, more intense Callan Mulvey could easily be a more aggressive and youthful version of Superman’s nemesis that fits the tone of the DC movie universe.

The other alternative, however, is that¬† Mulvey will be mo-capping Hulk-style the film’s other rumoured villain, Doomsday.
