Jeremy Irons as Alfred is enough to get me on board. Well played, WB.

Is he going to be bald? Or will he have hair like Gene Hackman?

Sigh...if they were going for that kind've Lex they might as well of just casted Rosenbaum. I'll give him a shot though, I guess...I'm sick of complaining.

Now Jeremy Irons as Alfred? Well freakin played, DC.

you know i have to say for this guy to win the role and competing against a guy like cranston phoniex and mark strong says something. now before people take my head off maybe the reason why cranston didnt get it is simply because maybe snyder is going for a different lex luthor because lets say cranston did get it wouldnt he just be the same guy from breaking bad? id also like to point out i tried watching breaking bad and it wasnt my thing but cranston has been acting for a long time and would he be this hyped if he just came off malcom in the middle? im not knocking the guy but i think a lot of the hype around him stems from breaking bad.

@ganon15: They probably mistook Heisenberg for Eisenberg. I wouldn't put it past them.

Can't believe they went from actors like Cranston and Phoenix to Eisenberg. At least I can hope that Cranston will be up for Gordon.

Man I can't tell you how bad I wanted Cranston in this movie!!! Im starting to think maybe it has something to do with the cost of getting these great actors to play these roles.I remember RDJ asking or doing Iron Man 3 for like 50M or something like that,If thats not it idk what else.

my dream cast for a batman superman wonder woman film titled the trinity

jon hamm or manu bennet for batman

@tazzmission: I think Cumberbatch would've been perfect for Luthor.

Jeremy Irons is going to nail the role of Alfred. I'm excited to see him in the role! As far as Lex and Batman go, they seriously need to get re-casted.

that dosent mean every movie goer wants to see him. same with nathan fillion. yea the man is a great actor but he stared on a show that got cancelled 11 or 12 years ago and yet till this day despite fans demanding him to be in a marvel or dc cinematic universe and yet nothing . just because a person is popular now with a small tv crowd dosent mean there 100% demanded by studios. i know this may sound hypocritical but jennifer lawrence has a better chance in a dc movie over those 2 because the hunger game franchise has banked a lot of money as well as the xmen franchise. your talking about 2 fan favorites from a tv show against a billion dollar movie franchise.

not everyone watches breaking bad
