As if further proof were needed that we’ll never be talking about 2011’s dishwater-dull Green Lantern in the context of DC superhero movies ever again, Mark Strong, who played authoritarian Green Lantern and future supervillain Sinestro, teased a possible role in Man Of Steel 2 as super-genius tycoon and arch-nemesis Lex Luthor.

Asked by Digital Spy if there was any truth behind the Lex Luthor rumours, Strong replied, “All I can say is… watch this space.”

The rarely accurate Latino-Review, meanwhile, have thrown another name into the ring, citing as usual no sources – Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston.
