Jesse Eisenberg Will Be Your Lex Luthor

Sharpen those pitchforks. Jesse Eisenberg has been cast as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred in the upcoming Superman/Batman movie.

“Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940,” Snyder said. “What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”

I never imagined Lex Luthor as a screaming ball of neurosis. What is he going to do? Annoy people to death? Ok, we get it. You’re anxious around people. Just shut up! *Jumps off roof*
