Is Mackenzie Gray Lex Luthor?
We love it when the Internet lights up with rumours. Don't you? This time, we've got the ultimate rumour for you -- but you might not want to read this post if you don't like (potential) spoilers.
A whole bunch of blogs are reporting that Mackenzie Gray will play the role of Lex Luthor in the upcoming 'Superman: Man of Steel' film. Not familiar with Gray? He's the face of "Dr. Alistair Kreig" (also known as a Lex Luthor clone) on 'Smallville.'
He has also been in more than 100 different shows and films throughout the past few years, and he has the perfect face for a villain. Seriously, if you take a look at Kreig's IMDB photo, you will see what I'm talking about. This guy is the perfect Lex Luthor!
So, just how reliable are those rumours? The first rumour came from an 'I Am Rogue' interview with 'Man of Steel' screenwriter, David Goyer that goes something like this:
IAR: Can you talk about your decision to not include Lex Luthor in Man of Steel?
Goyer: I don’t think anyone has every confirmed that we haven’t included him.
Aha! Luthor will be in the film (at least that's what Goyer seems to be hinting at)! Gray himself has also confirmed that he will be in the film, and what other part could he possibly play than the one that was meant for him (so it seems)?
As has been the case since this film went into production, no confirmation from the studio has appeared. But, we're betting that Lex Luthor will, indeed, appear in 'Man of Steel,' and Mackenzie Gray will be the face of Superman's archenemy!
