DCEU

SNYDER & EISENBERG REVEAL ‘SCARY LUTHOR’

Published

*POSSIBLE SPOILERS*

Since the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman and Jesse Eisenberg as Luthor, ‘Batman v Superman‘ has already seen its fare share of criticism.  Luckily, Episode VII has taken the attention away from the upcoming DCEU flick in recent months.  But soon, the attention will return, as BvS will surely be one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2016.

Fans have already begun to accept Affleck in the role of one of the most beloved DC Comic heroes of all-time in Batman.

But what about Eisenberg as Luthor…?

The most recent full trailer for BvS gave us a deeper look into what director Zack Snyder is going to bring us in 2016, even going as far as to feature Doomsday, which most fans were excited about, but felt that maybe it gave to much away too soon.

Still, the only true uncertainty is Eisenberg, not because he is a bad actor, only because he doesn’t fit the role in the way that we are generally use to seeing it portrayed.  In an interview with LA Times Eisenberg had this to say:

“The only difference between this movie and everything else I’ve ever been in is this has an audience that has prior expectations, and that’s the only thing that I find disconcerting because it feels like some people are occasionally ready to get angry at me for the part they haven’t seen me play yet. It’s bewildering.”

It sounds as though Luthor will develop on screen and won’t start as the menacing Luthor we have come to know.

“The character has a core of reality. [Luthor] has a back story that’s tragic and an emotional inner life that’s authentic. That’s in the movie.”

Snyder went on to say:

“I feel like once [Eisenberg] found out who Lex was he embraced it. Once you kind of start digging into Lex, it’s a bit of a scary thing to be that guy. I don’t think he just goes ‘Oh, I’ll just be that guy and then when I go home I’m not him.’ I think the thing with Jessie is he wasn’t immune to the reality of playing a super-scary character.”

When asked about Luthor’s hair in BvS Snyder gave a little insight:

“When you see the movie, you’ll see. It’s the greatest scene that I’ve ever gotten to take part in — it accounts for the change in hair.”
