Jesse Eisenberg Will Be Lex Luthor In Batman vs. Superman31.01.14 # News # 3 Comments
The secret’s out. Jesse Eisenberg will be playing Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s as-yet-untitled Batman vs. Superman movie. Rumour had Mark Strong and Walter White (sorry, I meant Bryan Cranston) in the running, but for some reason Warner Bros. want Mark Zuckerberg. Actually, Mark Zuckerberg is the perfect choice for a monomaniacal super-villain hell-bent on enriching himself by subjugating the people of Earth and destroying all that is good and right.

No word yet on whether Eisenberg will sacrifice his gorgeous curly locks for the role. But if Christian Bale can gain and lose life-threatening amounts of weight for three separate parts, I’m sure ol’ Jesse will take one for the team.
Also, for added “oh, they chose that guy?”, Jeremy Irons will be Alfred to Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne. Simon Gruber making tea for the guy who wasn’t Will Hunting? Yes please, Hollywood!
