Jesse Eisenberg Cast As Lex Luthor In Batman Vs Superman/Man Of Steel 2 Movie!!! Jeremy Irons Also Cast As Alfred Pennyworth!!!
Warner Bros. Pictures made a huge and shocking annoncement today as they have officially announced the casting of Academy Award nominated actor (The Social Network) Jesse Eisenberg as Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor and Academy Award winning actor (Reversal Of Fortune) Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, the world famous butler, mentor and father figure to Bruce Wayne AKA Batman, who of course will be played by Ben Affleck. Responses are already heated about the casting of Eisenberg , who most believe isn’t the right fit to portray the vicious, dark, power obsessed maniac that is Lex Luthor. Meanwhile Jeremy Irons’ casting as trusty butler Alfred has been more well received as he is an established talented actor with a proven ability to have a strong range. The sequel to last year’s blockbuster Man Of Steel has had it’s fair share of criticism with many fans not approving of the casting of several of the roles including a large backlash when Affleck was initially announced as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Gal Gadot’s hiring to be DC Comics Superheroine Wonder Woman (who will at least make a cameo in the Batman Vs Superman film) was also met with dislike We can only wait and see how this will all turn out. And that wait will be a bit longer than originally anticipated as Man Of Steel 2/Batman Vs Superman has been pushed back from July 17, 2015 to May 6, 2016.
