HBO Max’s Titans season 4 is seemingly preparing to cast an iconic member of the DC universe. According to insider Daniel Richtman, the production is looking at Bruce Campbell, Cary Elwes, Garret Dillahunt, and Toby Huss to potentially play Lex Luthor.
Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster in 1940, Lex Luther debuted in Action Comics #40. The classic villain has served as Superman’s long-standing archenemy and has cleared a space for himself in the DC Universe.
Of the names listed, Campbell and Elwes are certainly the most notable. The former is known best for his role as Ash Williams in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead franchise. Meanwhile, Elwes became a household name for his roles in the cult classic The Princess Bride and 1993’s Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
Additionally, Dillahunt and Huss have appeared in several well-known series and films. Dillahunt is best known for his role in Raising Hope, for which he was nominated for a Critics Choice Television Award. Huss has lent his voice to the characters Kahn Souphanousinphone and Cotton Hill in the animated series King of the Hill.
According to Richtman’s report, production is still performing availability checks for the respective stars, so it is still uncertain whether any of them will portray Luthor in Titans season 4. But as filming continues on the series, hopefully fans can expect confirmation of his casting soon.
