Smallville's Lex Luthor wants you to help him get cast in Man of Steel 2

Man of Steel's sequel will, undoubtedly, feature Lex Luthor. Here's one actor who thinks he's right for the part, especially since he's played Luthor before.

Even though Man of Steel just came out, people are already clamoring for the sequel. And it's clear what people want for part two -- Lex Luthor. So lists have been cropping up of actors who might be right for the role. One such list from Buzz Focus included actor Michael Rosenbaum. That's a smart choice, especially since Rosenbaum already played Luthor for many years on Smallville. In fact, many Smallville fans agree that Rosenbaum's performance as Lex Luthor was the best thing about the show.

Well, it turns out that Rosenbaum enjoyed playing Lex so much that he wouldn't mind taking another crack at it. He even tweeted about it!

As much as we enjoyed Rosenbaum's take on Luthor, we're not so sure Warner Bros. is going to take the proverbial bait on this one. Would it be such a good idea to tie Man of Steel to Smallville? As continuity goes, they have absolutely nothing in common. Also, Rosenbaum may be a name among Smallville fans, but he's virtually unknown in the world of big-budget film. Then again, most people had no idea who Henry Cavill was until now, either.

What do you think? Does Rosenbaum deserve a second shot?
