Potential BATMAN/SUPERMAN SPOILERS: Lex Luthor Character & Scene Descriptions
El Mayimbe of Latino Reviews, has addressed fanboy nation with a new article that provides potential spoilers regarding Jesse Eisenberg's ("Zombieland") Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's untitled Batman/Superman film. Hit the jump to check them out.
After having enough time to digest Warner Bros. shocking casting announcement, people began to wonder how Lex Luthor will be portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg ("The Social Network") in Zack Snyder's untitled Batman/Superman film. We've seen some logical speculation from Drew McWeeney of HitFix and yesterday The Hollywood Reporter chimed in with some of their own details, however, El Mayimbe has potentially trumped them all. Below, you will find a character description for the new Lex Luthor, as well as a scene description involving him and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). This information is said to be from an early draft of the script and not the final one which is still being worked on by Argo screenwriter, Chris Terrio.
Lex Luthor is BALD. His head is shaven to be exact. But that is not all. He has another physical trait. You see, Lex Luthor is also into body art and has a detailed sleeve tattoo of the Metropolis skyline on his right arm. Lex is also the richest man on the planet who became a self made billionaire at 18. Lex is currently the CEO of Lexcorp who is one part tech genius, one part ruthless business man and two parts Metropolis street tough. Yes, street tough.
At 14 Lex was living on the streets and for survival was initiated into a street gang. He learned early on that there was someone always bigger and stronger but never smarter. By 15 that street gang was answering to him. According to Lex, strength isn’t everything. RESOLVE is.
Bruce considers Superman an impressive specimen. Lex considers him an alien, and a trespasser that doesn’t belong on this planet. Superman is just one of the reasons Bruce came to visit Metropolis. He has an interest in the city’s tragic circumstances. More like profitable circumstances according to Lex.
The rebuilding of Metropolis is Bruce Wayne’s main priority and is in town to help. Bruce believes pooling their resources would better serve the citizens of Metropolis and Bruce is willing to put his differences with Lex aside and let bygones be bygones.
