One of the worst castings in recent memory.
patrat18 - 5/16/2014, 4:21 PM
Anybody know the exact time he talks about bvs?
Nomis1800 - 5/16/2014, 4:22 PM
How could you possibly say that. Have you read the script? Have you any idea how they're all planning to bring Lex to life?

Eisenberg is a good actor whether you like him or not.

I'm really looking forward to his performance.

I think he'll do a good job. I'm not going to pull the Ledger argument because it is used in the wrong way. Ledger's joker wasn't the joker from the comics or what most people were familiar with but it worked despite that. It was new and different. The same can happen with Jess and Lex Luthor.

What were you smokin' when you cast him, Zack?!

Nomis - 5/16/2014, 4:28 PM
That one Schmoe (Mark) looks like a white version of "kid" from Kid and Play!

You show them Jesse!
Fabius - 5/16/2014, 4:57 PM
"Jesse is a good actor" some people think that, I'm not this one sorry, but if he will do fine job in this movie, I will enjoy to be this one.
MrBlackjack - 5/16/2014, 5:08 PM
I love this casting!
MrBlackjack - 5/16/2014, 5:08 PM
Hope he doesn't disappoint!
Brainiac13 - 5/16/2014, 5:09 PM

I just watched The double. ........what a shit movie.......depressing. ....

I'm really worried now about Eisenberg casting as LL........I don't see it....

I'm watching the Social Network now....
MantiniuMan - 5/16/2014, 5:11 PM
Really intriguing idea that Jesse will play Lex,I cant wait to see what Snyder will do with Lex,and how he will shoot/envision him....

Haters don't worry Jessie Eisenberg is a leading man From The Double to Zombie Land,he gets films made as the main character and leading man,he will bring it..
MantiniuMan - 5/16/2014, 5:16 PM

So true....he does look like him...

I smell,I smell.....
Comedian03 - 5/16/2014, 5:21 PM
People raged when Ledger was cast as the Joker.

People raged when Affleck was cast as Batman.

People are raging about Jesse cast as Lex.

I think we know where this is going.
MrBlackjack - 5/16/2014, 5:42 PM
@Comedian don't forget...

People raged about Keaton as Batman
People raged about Hathaway as Catwoman
People raged about RDJ as Stark
People raged about Hemsworth as Thor
People raged about Evans as Cap
People raged about Ruffalo as Banner
People raged about Adams as Lane
People raged about Hardy as Bane
People raged about Jackman as Logan
People raged about Maguire as Parker
People raged about Goode as Ozymandias
People raged about Norton as Banner
People raged about Elba as Heimdall
People raged about Fishburne as White

and most people would agree the fans were wrong.
DrunkenNukem - 5/16/2014, 5:49 PM
i have to watch The Double
dnno1 - 5/16/2014, 5:49 PM
@patrat18, the segment on BvS starts at about 1:03:15.

@Brainiac13, I don't believe you watched that film ("The Double). The film had good ratings and the trailer looked interesting. It was based on a classic by Fyodor Dostoyevski.
Kyos - 5/16/2014, 5:54 PM
"People raged when Ledger was cast as the Joker."

Some did. Some didn't.

"People raged when Affleck was cast as Batman."

And boy, has he proven those unhappy with the casting totally wrong with his amazing performance.

DrDoom - 5/16/2014, 6:03 PM

Your argument falls apart at the point where you unknowingly or not are essentially saying that all of those casting decisions were derided by the SAME people, and that all of those casting decisions were then praised by everyone.
Brainiac13 - 5/16/2014, 6:04 PM


Believe me when I say....I watched 'The Double''s on every Torrent sites.

Is was boring as hell.......

I have to admit......he's good in The Social Network.....and still got more than half to watch.....

Tuuralihn - 5/16/2014, 6:08 PM
I am now going to watch Hart of Dixie.
Brainiac13 - 5/16/2014, 6:09 PM
I want Eisenberg to succeed as LL, I want him to give a performance which will rival Ledger's Joker....

But at this very moment I don't see him as LL......

I'm hoping he knocks it out of the park....

Fabius - 5/16/2014, 6:19 PM
About the face and the body of Lex, Jesse is very far from it.
Lex is so much important role, but I remember Spacey for this role in superman(sucks)returns and he was just Ok, hackman was far better.
So wait and see maybe Jesse will do good. Or bad. I 'm scared about what he will do it. Please Zack direct him very close!.
