'Lex Luthor' And LexCorp Feature In New Still From BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

A new image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been released, but who is the mystery man he's staring down? Could it be his abusive father?! Check it out.


Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman. Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open in theaters on March 25th, 2016. Are you excited?

Wonder who that is. Cant be Lionel Luthor.

@HugoStrange87 - I believe in this universe, Lex's father is also named Lex.
SimplyAz - 3/9/2016, 5:06 AM
@HugoStrange87 - Probably someone else on his board at LexCorp.

@HugoStrange87 - It is a congressman from that early leak during filming. In the background is Holly Hunter.

@HugoStrange87 @MattBellissimo

Lex Sr. is already dead. I believe I read in a faux interview that Lex said his father died in 2002 or something.
HugoStrange87 - 3/9/2016, 8:38 PM
@DavidGray - Oh right, I forgot they renamed him to Lex Sr.

That's probably some guy who works for Luthor
Matchesz - 3/9/2016, 5:05 AM
Eisenberg as lex luthor is still the dumbest casting..
Starman - 3/9/2016, 5:39 AM
@Matchesz - I have a feeling in a few weeks time that everyone who says that will be saying him and Batman are the only good things in the film.
slyguyty - 3/9/2016, 6:25 AM
@Matchesz - Nah it's not
TitanicByMyself - 3/9/2016, 6:33 AM
@slyguyty - people tend to over exaggerate lol. It's their schtick.
SimplyAz - 3/9/2016, 5:08 AM
Eisenberg is going to have to knock it out of the park, as the trailers haven't convinced people about him, unlike Gadot who some people seem to be changing their opinion about.

He was good in Now You See Me and he did the action and serious parts well in AMerican Ultra, even if it was a crap movie.
TitanicByMyself - 3/9/2016, 6:37 AM
@SimplyAz - he's a pretty decent actor. He just doesn't look like the traditional Lex. I'm sure he'll do fine with what he's given.
SimplyAz - 3/9/2016, 7:06 AM
@TitanicByMyself -
I personally like him and he has the range to do well.
He wouldn't be the first actor to change genres and and blow people away.
TitanicByMyself - 3/9/2016, 7:22 AM
@SimplyAz - agreed 100%
ArkhamKnight94 - 3/9/2016, 5:11 AM
Morgan Edge... you heard it here first :)
SimplyAz - 3/9/2016, 5:15 AM
@ComicsBornAndBred - I love that sketch
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/9/2016, 5:16 AM
@SimplyAz - it's one of their best
AlaRebeIde - 3/9/2016, 5:15 AM
Maybe is the Father of Ted Kord, or Robert Queen.
Doopie - 3/9/2016, 5:16 AM
it's Mystique disguised as Senator Kelly
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/9/2016, 5:18 AM
@Doopie - lol

Luminus - 3/9/2016, 5:40 AM
@Doopie - Beat me to it.
FlyntCoal - 3/9/2016, 5:44 AM
@Doopie - I legitimately chuckled.
Doopie - 3/9/2016, 5:58 AM
@Luminus - sorry - you gotta be quicker :)
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/9/2016, 5:17 AM
Why does everyone have to "be someone?" He could just be a random guy Lex is talking to or a board member; an investor taking in a presentation. Everybody isn't some dc character all the time nor should they be. I don't want every character to be an Easter egg.
MattBellissimo - 3/9/2016, 5:18 AM
@ComicsBornAndBred - Preach.
Luminus - 3/9/2016, 5:43 AM
@ComicsBornAndBred
@MattBellissimo

Because he's in a picture with one of the main cast, so clearly he's important.
LEVITIKUZ - 3/9/2016, 5:43 AM
@ComicsBornAndBred - But everyone must be someone!!!!

ComicsBornAndBred - 3/9/2016, 5:46 AM
@Luminus - lol
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/9/2016, 5:48 AM
@LEVITIKUZ -

mutantsoldier - 3/9/2016, 6:45 AM
@ComicsBornAndBred - lmao!!!
TheRen - 3/9/2016, 5:18 AM
Lol. Still can not believe this dude is playing Lex Luthor. They could announce Michael Cera for Darkseid today and these Snyder suckers would praise it as genius.
ArkhamKnight94 - 3/9/2016, 5:25 AM
@TheRen - that would be the shittiest casting of all time.... Oh and recent reviews of the film say Jesse as Lex is spot on.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/9/2016, 5:29 AM
@TheRen - me neither. The rest of the casting seems fine but Eisenberg....eh. Seems like an obvious ploy for him to do some variation of his Social Network role. Idk if I'll like him and that's sad because every other cast member seems good for their role
mutantsoldier - 3/9/2016, 6:46 AM
@TheRen - still better than the mandarin
Toonstrack - 3/9/2016, 7:16 AM
@TheRen - Lol so true. I hope Jessie surprises me but I'm not expecting much.
craigferguson - 3/9/2016, 5:19 AM
Guys... 2 MORE WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD IT IS FINALLY HERE AFTER YEARS IT IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SuperGOAT - 3/9/2016, 5:19 AM
By all means, I CANNOT WAIT for this movie to come out. But a part of me wishes that we'd stop seeing "new" stills and clips, so my anticipation could be higher! And DAMMIT, I wish I didn't know that Doomsday was in it
MattBellissimo - 3/9/2016, 5:21 AM
@SuperGOAT - There's an easy way to avoid that....don't look or watch! ;)

Lol I've been pretty good myself, avoided everything since the last "fight clip" of them on the rooftop.
