Would you like to see Denzel Washington play "Lex Luthor" Anyone?

It just wouldn’t be Hollywood if there weren’t rumors abounding about which actor will be playing a coveted part. This time around it’s Denzel Washington as Lex Luthor in the upcoming “Man of Steel 2/Batman vs Superman.”

The rumors of Washington playing Superman’s arch-nemesis started in early December when a source revealed that they were already testing for the part of Lex Luthor. Washington was at the top of their list, but nothing has materialized just yet. Other’s on this list included Idris Elba and a certain reoccurring cast member from the CW series Arrow who also fits the description.

Elba would be a hard get, especially since he plays Hemdall in Marvel’s Thor films. It might also be quite difficult for the actor from Arrow to portray Lex Luthor if the DC world ever wanted to bring the characters of Arrow to the big screen. So that would leave Washington.

One thing’s for sure, Washington has proven that he can play the villain very well. His Oscar winning performance from Training Day anyone?
