For the last several days, the internet had been buzzing over a report that Mackenzie Gray will play Lex Luthor in Man of Steel. While only weeks ago the belief was that Lex Luthor might get a passing mention in Man of Steel at best, opinions have quickly changed.
Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer gave the unusual response that no one had confirmed that Lex Luthor wasn’t in the movie, and Ain’t It Cool News went on record citing they had a source that told them Lex Luthor plays a substantial role in Man of Steel.
Because Mackenzie Gray has a secret but reportedly big role in Man of Steel, many eyes have turned toward him. Good Movies Bad Movies posted to Mackenzie Gray’s official fan page about the rumor, and surprisingly, Mackenzie Gray actually replied.
Mackenzie Gray wrote, “People talk, but I don't... Keeping it all a secret until the film opens June 14...” While Mackenzie Gray didn’t exactly confirm the role, the fact that he didn’t try to downplay that he might be playing Lex Luthor does make us think there could be something to it.
