Warner Bros Pictures, with all of its high class movie know how, and big budget spendy-spend executives have decided to cast Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie.
I was not aware [and I may get shit for this later] that Lex was supposed to be an awkward, eighteen year old looking, [yes I know he’s thirty] five-foot-seven kid from New Jersey. Well maybe the Jersey part I can believe. But at this point they really should just make it a casting lottery for BvS and see what happens.
An ACTUAL penguin as The Penguin perhaps? An all animal production? THAT, I would pay to see!
Luckily they have cast Jeremy Irons to play Alfred. Though Michael Caine will be missed, as every Bruce needs a little sass to go with his morning juice, Irons is a well rounded actor that can certainly step into any role and make it his own. [Have you seen The Borgias?]
We can only hope the Eisenberg’s slant disposition can fill the shoes of Lex Luthor; surely the bitchiest, broadest [human] villain in the D.C. universe!
