While many have been conversing about the roles of Superman and Batman colliding on screen together, there’s one man in their way that will set out to destroy them both… Lex Luthor. His rage and capability to find Superman’s weakest spot will ultimately see the alliance of Batman and Superman together right?
Since the news that Jesse Eisenberg was set to play the role of the infamous villain, we haven’t heard much about the character and his spin for Zack Snyder’s Batman vs Superman. Yet with an interview on MTV, he explains, “it is an entirely different thing. Also, the tone of that (‘Superman’) movie is so different, like that movie wouldn’t be made now. Like the way we expect movies to be now is to have some kind of — I mean, it’s probably for the best — there’s some kind of psychological accuracy. That the person is coming from a place probably diagnosable in some way”.
It appears that Batman vs Superman will be attempting to ground some characters to contrast against Superman. With DC attempting to generate that psychological aspect to their villainous characters, it appears Jesse Eisenberg will have a slight different take on the character in comparison to others who have played the villainous Lex Luthor. The release of Batman Vs Superman is set for March 25, 2016.
