Last week in a Press release DC announced that Jesse Eisenberg would be playing the Infamous Villain Lex Luthor. They also announced that Geoff Johns DC’s Chief Creative Director would be the new Executive Producer on Batman Vs Superman (Man of Steel: Fight or Flight).
This week we have details from a Source close to the films production crew, detailing the relationship between Lex Luthor and Bruce wanye. Below is an Excerpt from what the source had to say about their relationship in the film and how the two characters are connected to metropolis.
Lex Luthor is BALD. His head is shaven to be exact. But that is not all. He has another physical trait. You see, Lex Luthor is also into body art and has a detailed sleeve tattoo of the Metropolis skyline on his right arm. Lex is also the richest man on the planet who became a self made billionaire at 18. Lex is currently the CEO of Lexcorp who is one part tech genius, one part ruthless business man and two parts Metropolis street tough. Yes, street tough.
We meet Lex early on in the story when Bruce Wayne first pays him a visit at his 125th floor penthouse located inside Lexcorp Tower. Lex is sitting at his desk in front of an array of computer screens. Bruce considers Superman an impressive specimen. Lex considers him an alien, and a trespasser that doesn’t belong on this planet. Superman is just one of the reasons Bruce came to visit Metropolis. He has an interest in the city’s tragic circumstances. More like profitable circumstances according to Lex.
The rebuilding of Metropolis is Bruce Wayne’s main priority and is in town to help. Bruce believes pooling their resources would better serve the citizens of Metropolis and Bruce is willing to put his differences with Lex aside and let bygones be bygones.
Let us know what you think about this! Also, dont forget to leave a comment about what you think of the Jesse Eisenberg Casting as Lex Luthor.
