Dc announced that their upcoming live-action series, Metropolis, will center on Lois Lane and Lex Luthor investigating "the world of fringe science and expos[ing] the city’s dark and bizarre secrets." Lois Lane, star reporter, and fringe science shenanigans? Sign me up!Read More
Everyone who's anyone seems to get remade in the Clue image these days, and now it's Rick and Morty's turn.Read More
Make Metropolis great again.
The results may (not) surprise you!Read More
The marketing for Batman v Superman has been pretty by-the-books: teasers, trailers, posters of the main characters, super-serious grim-dark posturing for all involved. Well, except for all of the marketing surrounding LexCorp. There's a viral campaign that keeps positioning Lex Luthor as a real person and LexCorp as a real company -- and some people, such as yours truly, think it's starting to feel corny.Read More
It seems as though the wunderkind running LexCorp these days is looking to make a name for himself out from under his father's shadow, as he seems to be everywhere these days! First, there was that interview with Fortune Magazine. Now, LexCorp is providing free wi-fi to the Javits Center in NYC for New York Comic Con.Read More
In a recent bit of awesome alternate-reality marketing, Batman v Superman's Lex Luthor did an interview with Fortune Magazine, and Lex himself tweeted from his official Twitter about it. You'd think that someone as fancy-pants as Lex Luthor would be verified.Read More
Over the weekend Jason Momoa told fans he "will not be busting out a bunch of jokes" as Aquaman, and now Jesse Eisenberg is also promising a laugh-free film.Read More
Finally, after much darkness, the cast of Batman v Superman comes into the light of dawn ... of Justice! Entertainment Weekly gets the first official images featuring Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Jesse Eisenberg from the upcoming Warner Bros. film.Read More
At least he isn't Mr. Freeze.
Jesse Eisenberg has had a variety of roles ranging from startup wunderkind to zombie slayer to magician. Now, in his newest role as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he's had to face one more new, "terrifying" fear: shaving his head.Read More
Are you ready?Read More
This whole post is an excuse for the Photoshop under the cut. I won't lie.
As GammaSquad points out, this is pretty clearly a wig Jesse Luthorberg is wearing in this fan encounter pic, either to cover his bald noggin or whatever other hairstyle Gen Y Lexypoo will have in Dawn of Justice. Snyder & co. are not playing around with the secrecy here. Wait, does this mean Eisenberg has to wear a wig every time he goes out in public while filming his part of Dawn of Justice? Don't disappoint me, Jesse. You know what to do:Read More
Maybe he and The Flash will swap bodies?
Clancy Brown is one of those actors who's as prolific in the flesh as he is through voice acting alone, with credits in Bad Boys, E.R., The Shawshank Redemption, and Highlander, as well as SpongeBob Squarepants, Avatar, and the DC Animated Universe shows. Now he'll be continuing his legacy with DC adaptations with a new role on The Flash.Read More
Hairy baby! Hairy babeeeee.
Earlier today, Susana showed you a look at some of Big Hero 6 merchandise Disney sent to us. It was very professional and journalistically-appropriate post. Both of us decided that level of quality and integrity would not stand, so we took a bunch of dorky pictures where Baymax hangs out with our ever-growing collection of office action figures. You're welcome, Internet!Read More
Not in the same film, though. That's be weird.
Whether you're gathering a highly trained team of superheroes or stealing as many as 40 cakes (and that's terrible), choosing the right look for yourself is an important part of the process. The Internet's been awash with a lot of costuming rumors for both Age of Ultron and Batman V. Superman, so let's dive right in, shall we? Spoilers all around, of course. You've been warned!Read More
Faster than a speeding bullet!
David Goyer Thinks It’s A Mistake To Listen To Comic Book Fans, Jesse Eisenberg Can’t Talk About Man Of Steel 2
Your opinions are noted, Internet.
Man of Steel's Batman vs. Superman sequel just can't catch a break. First it was Ben Affleck playing Batman, then people were angry about Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and then it was announced that Jesse Eisenberg would play Lex Luthor. Zack Snyder thinks fans would understand if they knew the script.Read More
Faster than a speeding bullet!
But, you know, feel free to keep getting upset over casting news, Internet.
People have a lot of mixed feelings about Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, because Hollywood is a democracy that takes the opinions of the Internet into account when they make their casting choices.* (*That is actually not at all how movies work.) Latino Review got some specifics on Eisenberg's Luthor, and he sounds perfect for it.Read More
It's bad, you guys. It's really, really bad.
Yesterday, we found out that Jesse Eisenberg has been cast as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman vs. Superman flick. We weren't the only people struggling with this announcement (most of us were expecting Heisenberg, not Eisenberg), so Jacky Timish has kindly created a video dubbing Eisenberg's voice over the animated Luthor.Read More
