Can they really be serious? Okay, we continue to hope the script has little Lex Luthor. How can you take an iconic villain, and simply destroy his value by casting a dorky looking , annoying, un-intimidating, harmless, mediocre type actor like Eisenberg?
Well, after seeing Cranston in Total Recall, I am glad they did not choose him. It was Joaquin Phoenix who would have played the best Lex Luthor - and with Michael Douglas issuing his official stamp of approval on comic book films, by accepting the role of Hank Pym in Ant Man, it is a surprise that Phoenix would decline such an offer.
It is such a sad news event.
So now the list includes Hackman, Spacey, and naturally, Jesse Eisenberg.
Can't get much worse, my friends.
