We Uncovered Joaquin Phoenix’s Secret Superman Origin

Must watch clip of rumored Lex Luthor as 'Superboy' villain.

Though rumors that “Her” star Joaquin Phoenix may be in line to play villain Lex Luthor in “Batman vs. Superman” still firmly sit in the realm of rumor, there’s one piece of the puzzle you may not have known until now: Phoenix has starred as a Superman villain once already… In 1989.

From 1988-1992, the syndicated show “Superboy” was produced by MTV’s mothership Viacom, CBS, and Warner Brothers. It featured the adventures of a younger Superman in a half hour format, usually with a new guest star or villain every episode.
