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.

Doomsday Mentioned in Man Of Steel Blu-Ray!!!

Doomsday Mentioned In Man Of Steel Blu-Ray!!!

Could Doomsday be in Superman’s Theatrical Future?!!! In the Special Features of the Man Of Steel Blu-Ray to be released nation wide tomorrow (November 12th, 2013) there is an interesting nod to “The One Who Killed Superman.” In a feature called Learn About Krypton, some Kryptonian language is being deciphered and a warning about “Bertron’s Curse” can been seen. The ominous message states “We remember those who fell during the Last War…Beware Bertron’s curse for he is named Doomsday.” Pretty cool, and a nice little nod to all us fans who have wanted to see the epic battle of Superman & Doomsday played out on the big screen. I don’t believe this will happen in Man Of steel 2 AKA Batman Vs Superman, and I also don’t believe this will necessarily happen in the potential Justice League movies either. I could see the seeds being planted in the Justice League movies and Doomsday finally appearing in either the final Man Of Steel movie or the one before the last film. What do you guys think? Are you excited for the possibilities?
