Great podcast as always. Keep it up guys.

I didn't realize this until I looked it up. Eisenburg is the same age as Cavill. It just seems like Eisenburg always plays a teenager. He does well at being condescending and I think that's perfect for Luthor. Definitely out of the box thinking and I love it. The castings I always end up liking the best are the ones that at first make me like "WHAAA?" I love it when fanboys are completely caught off guard by casting announcements.

@Gusto, guess I'm just not into rape jokes.
gillri - 2/4/2014, 8:08 AM

yes because Cavill is proper macho and Eisenburg plays nerdy teenagers you forget they are the same age

If Eisenberg got a well shaped head, bald will look good on him.

I just hope he won't play a different version of Mark Zuckerberg. Alas, we know Eisenberg can play intelligent men. Hope he can ditch the fast talking, think that doesn't fit Lex Luthor.

@Cipher im always hear man, watching...
But I don't comment a lot anymore, cause, well let's be honest, between my ancient battle with the Trolls(which I'll never win), guys like DannyBoy who report EVERYONE for EVERYTHING, and the mods becoming some type of word dictators on who can and can't say what, it's just not too interesting.
DestroyallTroll - 2/4/2014, 9:26 AM
Still love yall though

If they were going for a young Lex they should have gone with Ben Foster. Damn you WB/Snyder, damn you.
