WAIT!??! WHAT!??! Jesse Eisenberg as the genius devil, Lex Luthor?!! REALLY?!?!! Don’t get me wrong. He’s a really good actor. I love his movies like Zombieland, Social Network, Now you see me and even in the little part of the TV show, Modern Family. He was great. But as a evil genius? I’m sceptical. I was more happy when there were a rumor about Bryan Cranston being Lex Luthor.
As for Jeremy Irons, I don’t really know him unfortunately. You can see some of his performance in the movies The man with the iron mask, Die Hard: With a vengeance, TV show The Borgias and as the voice of Scar in Lion King. He did won the Academy Award for his portrayal of Claus von Bülow in Reversal of Fortune. Also a Golden Globe Award and a Emmy Award and a SAG (Screen Actors Guild) for his performance in the TV miniseries Elizabeth I.
Here are the cast of Superman VS. Batman as of now.
Any thoughts? Do you agree with this new cast?
