Patrick Warburton as "Captain Marvel"?

It's not like he hasn't had practice playing "simplistic, well meaning super heroes before".

Admit-ably; few are as simplistic as the Tick but still.

Eh he's pretty much the perfect look for a Luthor based off the Timm version.

While he is a muslim, it might make you feel a little better that racial he's an Indian (the country India, though born in Pakistan).

Of course; in concept he would also be a villain, so hating him wouldn't be the worst reaction you could have to his character.

Make his comeuppance that much more enjoyable at the end.

True, i'd very much enjoy his eventual smushing.
Seriously it IS an uncanny resemblance. Wonder why Timm went with such an ethnic look.

Some people say Timm's version of Luthor looks suspicious black looking, who knows maybe he backed out of making a black guy the main superman villain at the last second?

Worried it might come off bad to have the ultimate hero a white guy and the ultimate villain a black guy?

Or maybe it was just totally subconscious on his part.

   Bruce Timm has said a number of times that his image of Luthor is based on Telly Sevalas aka the original Kojak. He was also Blofield in the James Bond film In Her Majesty's Secret Service.
   Thick lips, large nose, bald head. Intimidating as hell.
