Let's All Speculate Wildly About Which Comic Book Big Bad Joaquin Phoenix Would Play In 'Batman Vs. Superman'

Not that I pretend to understand the motivation behind most of Zack Snyder’s choices, but this one strikes me as particularly off. Most trade news outlets are reporting that Joaquin Phoenix is in the running to play Lex Luthor. Don’t get me wrong, Phoenix is an enormously talented actor and a freaking chameleon but Lex Luthor? I don’t see it. Phoenix has a great loopy, edgy charm that translates well to psychopaths and the disturbed. Lex Luthor has always struck me as the kind of mad man who has his sh*t together. To be fair, this casting rumor is still in its fledging stages, so the information might be slightly off. Which DC Big Bad would Phoenix be right for? If Jason Momoa is, as most comic nerds have surmised, playing Vandal Savage, then how would Lex Luthor fit into a plot involving both Batman and Superman? And in a post Breaking Bad world, how are we supposed to accept anyone other than Cranston in the role?

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
