With Bryan Cranston recently shooting down rampant rumors that he is going to play Lex Luthor in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel, I decided to morph past actors who have played Superman's arch-nemesis into one.
Inspired by the face morphs of Bruce Wayne and James Bond that we previously featured on the site, I tried to morph ALL of the actors who have played Lex in live-action television or film. Sadly, I was unable to find high resolution enough photos for Lyle Talbot (Atom Man vs. Superman), or Sherman Howard and Scott Wells from The Adventures of Superboy series. I'm admittedly still a bit of a photoshop novice, so working in their features while maintaining a sense of photorealism proved too difficult.
Below the pic is a breakdown of actors I was able to include and what part of Lex's face they are. When covering up the other parts of the face, the single elements of the actors are still very recognizable, but all together it looks like a completely new person!
Gene Hackman (Superman I, II, and IV) - Lex's left eye/eyebrow
John Shea (Lois & Clark) - Mouth and chin
Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) - Lex's right eye/eyebrow and nose
Kevin Spacey (Superman: Returns) - Everything else
What do you think of this hybrid Lex Luthor? Do you want to see the character make an appearance in the upcoming film? If so, who would you like to see play him?
