Mark Strong has hinted that he will play Lex Luthor in the Superman sequel.
The actor was speaking to Digital Spy, and when asked about the much-rumoured Luthor role, responses succinctly and cryptically;
“All I can say is… watch this space.”
Since the release of Man of Steel, speculation has been rife about the villain appearing in the sequel, with Strong being heavily linked to play him.
It was announced at Comic-Con that Batman will appear in the DC follow-up, with a new actor due to be cast as The Dark Knight. Strong has previously appeared in another DC outing, Green Lantern, as well as Robin Hood with Russell Crowe, and John Carter.
The as-yet-untitled Man of Steel will be released Summer 2015.
