I would REALLY hate this version of LL.

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

Oh yeah its good casting, he'd just pushmy muslim hatred button.

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.
'cause justice is the one thing you should always find.

That Punisher pic is awful. :(

Yeah but Hardy's got the capacity to do the right characterization. 

But I would still prefer Thomas Jane to be honest.  Far as punisher goes; he's pretty much the one for it.

Dolph Lundgren is still the BEST Punisher.


Nuff said.
