    The question is, does Mr. Phoenix even want to be in a movie like this? He’s mostly an actor in independent movies like the kind that he was in last year (The Master) and is mostly content with those. He may not care about being Lex Luthor at all.

    I’d suggest going with somebody who’s already bald most of the time I’ve sen him, like Billy Zane or Vin Disel.

    That IS a better choice. Won’t be seeing this one with affleck at all until its a 5$ dvd or LESS. And his directorial movie that I cannot remember, sucked…both of them.
