If you're of the camp that takes scoop guru El Mayimbe of Latino Review as the gospel, then he tweeted some interesting news today:
TWITTER SCOOP! JACKIE EARLE HALEY auditioned for a role in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN but they passed on him. Gee, I wonder what he went in for? RT— elmayimbe (@elmayimbe) November 11, 2013
Since the actor normally sports the best hairstyle in the world as everyday wear, speculation is that he was being looked at for Lex Luthor. Lord knows we haven't had enough Lex Luthor speculation recently (1) (2) - that was sarcasm if you didn't pick up on it.
Personally I think they will look for a young and handsome Lex Luthor to be the 'star of Metropolis' and Haley may have been looking at another part. It's possible there could be another villain working with Lex, there are other big roles like Gordon, Alfred, and more.
If only it was Rorschach, just to watch Alan Moore role over in his grave. Yes, I know he's not dead, but pretty sure he sleeps in a grave nonetheless. Though with Batman and Superman fighting it out in the next movie, fans might not want to be reminded what happens when street level hero meets god-like superhero.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
