Batman Vs. Superman - Lex Luthor And Alfred Cast!


In what could possibly be the biggest casting shock since... well Ben Affleck as Batman in the same film, Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland, The Social Network) has been cast as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons (Die Hard With a Vengeance, The Lion King) has been cast as Alfred.

Now I get the Jeremy Irons choice, English thesp and all that, but Eisenberg is the one that stresses me and a lot of other people out. It's not that he's not a great actor, he is, but he's not the breed of Lex Luthor we generally think about from the comics, cartoons, or movies. Will he go bald? Will he badass enough to be a match for Supes, and possibly Bats? We'll have to wait and see. Maybe this will be another Heath Ledger as Joker casting and we just can't see it yet...
