Who’s the real Lex Luthor?

While watching Superman Returns again tonight on HBO, I was once again reminded that the producers should have just asked Gene Hackman to return as Lex Luthor. Kevin Spacey’s a great actor, but Gene Hackman will always be Lex Luthor to me. (Doesn’t it give you a shudder of electricity through you just to be in the same room with me?)

Read my original review of Superman Returns. Thinking more about it now, I’d rate the movie lower than when I wrote that originally. I’m bothered by the way one subplot was left: Lois chooses Richard over Superman! That’s not the way the story works. Lois’ true love is Superman!!!!
