Bad Casting News: Jesse Eisenberg Is Lex Luthor In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Friday, January 31 by

In a move that makes Ben Affleck seem like a not bad choice, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. have gone ahead and cast Jesse Eisenberg in Batman vs. Superman. But we already have a Jimmy Olsen, you’re probably saying. Jimmy’s job is safe. Eisenberg has been cast as Superman’s greatest enemy, Lex Luthor. Yes. That Jesse Eisenberg. This is the only instance where I see it’s okay for Superman to break somebody’s neck.

Now, since this casting is 5 million types of wrong, here’s a brief list of people better suited for the role:

  • Ed Harris
  • Woody Harrelson
  • Bryan Cranston
  • Mark Strong
  • Michael Keaton
  • Michael Jordan
  • Gene Hackman
  • Literally anybody else
  • Locke from LOST
  • Beck
  • Bjork

At least they didn’t go with Michael Cera. (Source)
