Last week it was confirmed that Jesse Eisenberg has been cast as Lex Luthor. I think Eisenberg will do a great job. People were wondering how he would play the villain and if he would be bald or not. Latino Review is reporting that Lex WILL BE bald and have a tattoo of the Metropolis skyline on his right arm. They also report that Luthor will be a self-made billionaire by the age of 18 described as “one part tech genius, one part ruthless business man, and two parts Metropolis street tough.” Apparently he was in a street gang at the age of 14.
Here is the description of the possible first scene with Lex:
Lex takes a meeting at his LexCorp offices with none other than Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), while Lex is watching footage of Superman. There is no love lost between the two, with Lex thinking of Bruce as a trust fund baby, while he had to work hard to amass his fortune, and Bruce finding Lex to be an amoral, arrogant brat. Bruce is in town because he is interested in helping to rebuild the city, following the destruction Superman (Henry Cavill) caused in Man of Steel. While Bruce thinks Superman is impressive, Lex thinks he is an alien who doesn’t belong on the planet. Still, Bruce wants to put their differences aside and join forces to help rebuild Metropolis. The meeting ends with Lex saying his secretary will send Bruce the contracts, although while he leaves, Lex begins thinking about the mysterious Batman.
Batman vs Superman will be released on May 6, 2016.
