Having Lex isn't a bad thing BUT it'll be like the mid credits scene of TASM... It was Electro... But an Old White guy... But in the sequel it's Foxx a Black Young actor!

That's very restrictive!!

Just have a building & it's ok!
Just the Joker card in BB... You'll have complete freedom on that characters future appearance... Nothing is binding!!!

Maybe mentioned or acknowledged.. (writing on a news paper / background television announcement)etc. A full on feature though? Not really necessary..

Give the character a rest WB, Kevin Spacey did not fulfill what Lex should be either from the last version of Superman.

Also, the Red/White/Blue in the LexCorp logo tells me Luthor want to be viewed as a, AMERICAN PUBLIC FIGURE. (ahem)

MARK MY WORDS: Luthor will either BE or BE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT by third installment (and,or) JusticeLeauge film..

Maybe just a quick cameo.

Cameo of Lex played by some great actor. And all that as a secret...

i dont think he needs to appear in this film so long as he is known to exist its better to use him in the future

@Godzillafart- Enough Lex already? You do realize they never even got his character right. Not only that but Lex isn't just part of Superman's rogues gallery he is part of the supporting cast. If you're gonna say enough Lex already, then why not enough Lois? Or enough Perry?

Drop the Lex hate already.

@LP4 I agree with you. Lex needs to be done right. Even if they don't make him a main villain, he has to appear sometime in the franchise as a character. I'd love to see some other villains like Braniac appear, but Lex should be in the movies somehow, as long as they get the character right for once.

I do want to see Luthor, but they need to show how he is a truly twisted, evil individual as opposed to just a mad scientist. Plus, he should have henchmen like Metallo or Parasite so Supes has something to fight.

I would love a small cameo from a very twisted lex! but this is Zods movie to terrorize...I say small cameo and use him later on if they get a sequel which based on the latest trailer seems more and more likely! i'm stoked!
