While the internet heart attack over the the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in "Superman Vs. Batman" has subsided (at least until the first image of him in costume arrives), attention in recent hours/days has turned to do who will play the presumed villain Lex Luthor. Rumors circulated that it would be "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston, with Mark Strong also suggested to be reprising his role as Sinestro from "Green Lantern." The former has been debunked and the latter seems like a lot of hooey, so while nerds continue to worry about an Affleck-led DC Comics movie future, some others are being a bit more enterprising.

While the internet heart attack over the the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in "Superman Vs. Batman" has subsided (at least until the first image of him in costume arrives), attention in recent hours/days has turned to do who will play the presumed villain Lex Luthor. Rumors circulated that it would be "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston, with Mark Strong also suggested to be reprising his role as Sinestro from "Green Lantern." The former has been debunked and the latter seems like a lot of hooey, so while nerds continue to worry about an Affleck-led DC Comics movie future, some others are being a bit more enterprising.

Some fans have put together a pretty clever "Superman Vs. Batman" trailer, obviously made before it emerged the Cranston news probably wasn't true. Anyway, it's pretty accomplished for this sort of thing and also kind of funny, but mostly well done. We'll let you play "guess which movie" but you can also spoil the fun by clicking here. Either way, it's more enjoyable than the internet's Ben Affleck jokes were last week or any other pithy comments that emerged in the wake of the news. Watch below.
