Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons cast in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman

Jesse Eisenberg - La red social - MadridSo, now we know.

Zach Snyder’s Man Of Steel sequel may have been pushed back until May 2016, but that hasn’t stopped the casting news from reaching us faster than a speeding bullet. 

We all know about the Bat-Fleck saga with Ben Affleck and the casting of Fast and Furious’ Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, but it has now been revealed by Warner Brothers that Jesse Eisenberg will be taking on the role of the big, bad, bald Lex Luthor. Good choice? That depends on how they are going to approach the character, and let’s be honest he couldn’t be worse than Kevin Spacey.

Fans of the franchise may be sceptical, as Mr Eisenberg doesn’t scream evil genius, but we may all be pleasantly surprised.

Jeremy Irons (BIFF)Jeremy Irons, has also joined the cast, and will be donning the tuxedo as Bruce Wayne’s faithful and ever caring butler Alfred Pennyworth.

The as yet untitled sequel (Batman vs. Superman is still the working title) seems to be gathering pace, and with rumours of more DC characters such as Aquaman and Green Lantern to appear, I for one can’t wait to see where this movie is going.
