Here’s Jesse Eisenberg As Lex Luthor
Here’s Jesse Eisenberg As Lex Luthor

 

EW just dropped the first image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and as you can see Lex Luthor is still bald. Gonna be weird in that one scene where he nervously asks a girl out on a date or has to explain to his mother why he didn’t go to law school.

Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor. If I type it enough maybe it will set in that Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor. Nope, not helping. Deadline reports:

Two more key roles have been cast in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman-Batman movie for Warner Bros. Jesse Eisenberg will play Superman’s arch enemy Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Bruce Wayne’s butler/mentor Alfred in the pic, which is set for a May 6, 2016 release….“Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940,” Snyder said in Warner Bros’ announcement of the castings today. “What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”

Read that higlighted part again. Now realize they cast Jesse Eisenberg as fucking LEX LUTHOR. What new and unexpected directions do they plan on taking this? Lex Luthor is a Vine celebrity who needs an inhaler and Xanax to get on a plane? He watches Portlandia on his iPad? He gives Superman some Purell before they fight? Screw you, Snyder.

Jesse Eisenberg’s New Movie Is Offensive

Apparently the families of stupid criminals are really sensitive. TMZ reports:

Jesse Eisenberg’s new movie about a pizza delivery boy who’s abducted, outfitted with a bomb, and forced to rob a bank … is PISSING OFF friends of a man who was killed under VERY similar circumstances … TMZ has learned. The movie — “30 Minutes or Less” — is being promoted as a comedy flick. But back in 2003, nobody was laughing when 46-year-old pizza man Brian Wells DIED when a bomb strapped around his neck exploded after he tried to rob a bank. Wells insisted he was abducted during a pizza delivery in Pennsylvania — claiming the bombmaker locked an explosive device around his neck and ordered him to rob a bank. Cops placed Wells in handcuffs … but backed away from the guy when they realized the bomb was REAL. The bomb exploded while news cameras rolled … and Wells was killed instantly. Years later, federal prosecutors alleged Brian concocted the plan with several other people. One of the plotters insisted Brian was under the impression an actual bomb would NOT be used. TMZ spoke with one of Brian’s closest friends who tells us he’s outraged that Hollywood would mock Wells’ death … calling the movie “trash.” The friend tells us, “It’s stupid the movie is even coming out … producers can go jump in a lake for all I care!” He adds, “Doesn’t Brian have a right to die? They’re blowing something up that should never have even happened in the first place and now they wanna make a joke out it … it’s really tragic.” A rep for Columbia Pictures tells TMZ, “Neither the filmmakers nor stars the stars of ’30 Minutes or Less’ were aware of this crime prior to their involvement in the film.” The rep adds, “The writers were vaguely familiar with what had occurred and wrote an original screenplay that does not mirror the real-life tragedy. “
