Christopher Meloni is NOT Lex Luthor in "Superman" Reboot

Posted: June 26th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Christopher Meloni is NOT Lex Luthor in "Superman" RebootSubmit Comment
Just yesterday, it was revealed that "Law an Order: SVU" star Christopher Meloni was cast in Zack Snyder's "Superman" reboot, called "Man of Steel." Since his role was kept a secret, many assumed that he may be playing Lex Luthor.

NY Mag caught up with Meloni, who said that he will not be playing Luthor. Instead, he'll be a general in the movie. The actor wouldn't reveal any more about his role.

He went on to say that he starts filming at the end of August and he'll shoot his part over the course of five months in locations including Chicago, Vancouver, and Edwards Air Force Base.

Chris Meloni is not gonna play Luthor? What? He is going to play a general? Hope that it a character that it is a bad-ass character. But is in store for him in the Superman reboot movie?

Lol, my bad. Hope that his character turns out to be awesome. I would have to laugh at myself for my mistake. Hope somebody does not notice.

In other news, Minkowski reports that no one gives a sh*t that Melon isn't playing Luthor because no one ever said he was.

And the film should be title Superman, not f*cking Man of Steel. Just sounds really f*cking stupid. But that's Nolan with his oddball film titling.

First one should be called Superman, second chold be called Death of Superman and the third should be called The Return of Superman. And third should be like three hours of endless action.

Pffft. People just don't know how to make films anymore, because they're made by bean-counters, not film fans. Idiots.

Yeah. A Superman film should be kick ass from title to credits. No excuses. The one thing Im hoping Nolan keeps from the other Superman films is Williams theme. Cuz that is some seriously heroic sh*t. Isnt Billy Zane old enough, bald enough, and unemployed enough to play a menacing Luthor?

Willam's theme is of course absolutely epic.

Zane's the right age if they go by the standard mobster Lex from the earlier films, but if they go with the modern take then he should only be a few years older than Clark Kent, as they met in school.

He's like the 34th listed actor in the film, of course he's not f*cking playing Luthor.

I actually really like this guy and everytime I hear about this movie I can't help but get excited. Regarding the article don't know if he'd make a good Luther and I know I don't want Luther in this so I'm excited about it ha.

I like Meloni too. I'm just sad that this role in Superman is effectively going to tank Law & Order SVU. They're killing him off, and promoting his partner to captain on that show.
minkowski writes:
on June 27th, 2011 at 1:52:20 PM

The film shouldn't kill SVU. They could, if they wanted simply write his character out for a season, or for how long it takes Wb to film Meloni's rather likely small film parts. More than likely, Meloni wanted them to kill his character because he feels it's time to move on with his career.

He'll probably regret it later.
Suckmycog1 writes:
on June 27th, 2011 at 3:53:57 PM

I didn't know they were Killing his character off? Is that a confirmed thing or a rumor?
Champ1432 writes:
on June 27th, 2011 at 5:58:07 PM

It's a shame he's not coming back to SVU, it definitely won't be the same without him. But now that he's in this, I'm looking forward to it even more.

Who should they get for Lex Luthor ? Donald Trump! He would be perfect! He even has the wig for those scenes when Lex went bald!
