I can kind of see Eisenberg, in the mold of the character he played in Social Network. Luthor as young, petulant genius, as opposed to what we've traditionally seen. It could work. It depends entirely on the story. Luthor as a corporate threat to Bruce Wayne could be the way these two cross paths. Jeremy Irons has always been a tremendous actor, and him as Alfred offers some new avenues. Could work. would not have been the route I would have gone, but then none of these choices so far have been, so par for the course. We'll see.

As I commented in other forums, Lex Luthor isn't a geek.  "Petulant"?  Ridiculous.  Lex Luthor is an evil Tony Stark.  Confident.  Bold.  Imposing. 

Can Eisenberg pull of a character who everyone immediately fears and respects as soon as he walks in the room?  Don't make me laugh.

Can Heath Ledger pull of a character who everyone immediately fears and respects as soon as he walks in the room?  Don't make me laugh.


Remember when people were saying that???

I am not going to judge this one till i've seen it.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Nope.  Revisionist history.  There were *a few* vocal people who said that, but most hadn't really seen a lot of what he did (mostly rom-coms and indies), and thought he had a weak resume.  I don't remember tons of people saying he was WRONG for the part.

I remember people questioning Ledger as the Joker...I trust this group to make good casting choices, so we'll just wait and see.

At this point, I kind of want to see how jacked-up of a cast they can come up with.

Well, now they have to explain why there's another guy playing Green Lantern.  Is Ryan Reynold going to should up and pass the gas torch?

They still haven't contacted Dustin Diamond.  He could be some DC Screech-like villain.

Maybe the movie is intended to be more like the Superfriends?  Here's the official cast list:

Superman - Henry Cavill
Batman - Ben Affleck
Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot
Green Lantern - Dwyane Johnson
Robin - Joaquin Phoenix
Cyborg - Jerry Seinfeld
The Flash - Morgan Freeman
Aquaman - Joe Pesci
Hawkman - Ken Jeong
Lois Lane - Amy Adams
Lex Luthor - Jesse Eisenberg
Clay Face - Betty White
The Joker - Zach Galifianakis
Darkseid - Jon Heder
Catwoman - Rebel Wilson
Alfred - Jeremy Irons

I would totally pay $10 to see this train wreck come to life.

Nah - The Rock is black Green Lantern.  Reynolds was white Green Lantern.

But then the Green Lantern movie was so horrible they may want to exclude it from the continuity.  Man of Steel was the first film of this universe.

If they are going this route, you have to cast the Wonder Twins with a CGI Gleek.
