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.”

Bruce Wayne Is Dead: The Unused ‘Joker’ Ending That Would Have Made For A Much Darker Film

Published

on

2019’s ‘Joker,’ which has now been nominated for multiple Golden Globes, including “Best Actor” and Best Motion Picture – Drama,” has continued to surprise fans. The film has garnered large success, recently surpassing the $1billion milestone at the box-office, on a relatively small production budget of $50-70 mil. While ‘Joker’ is said to be a one and done film, Joaquin Phoenix and Director Todd Phillips haven’t quite ruled out the possibility of a second installment. ‘Joker,’ is also expected to receive multiple nominations at the Academy Awards as well.

During a recent podcast of Fatman Beyond, Kevin Smith shared a little insider information about one alternate ending that could have pushed ‘Joker’ even further to the dark side. Smith had this to say:

So [Arthur’s] in the hospital and he laughs, chuckles. And the lady goes, ‘What’s so funny?'” Smith recalled. “And he says, ‘I was just thinking of something funny.’ What was supposed to happen was, you flashed back to the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne. And it was him killing Thomas and Martha Wayne. And [Bruce] was screaming and crying. And [Joker] turned to walk away, then he turned back, shrugged, and shot the kid. CREDITS.

This ending would have surely solidified any potential connection to Batman in a future sequel. But, what this tells us, is Todd Phillips wasn’t ready to completely throw away the idea of pitting a future matchup between Phoenix’s Joker with some incarnation of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Do you think this would have made for a better ending? Or do you like the connection that Phillips left, with Joker’s ideology being the catalysts that kills Martha/Thomas Wayne and births Batman?
