WB are looking into doing another villain origin movie but this time it will be Lex Luthor with Jesse Eisenburg returning.

No Caption Provided

“To WB, this has the potential of being a modern-day Citizen Kane. You see Luthor grow up from being an awkward intellectual kid to corrupt wealthy businessman to president of the United States. Slap on an R rating and leave the comic books behind but perhaps put a twist on the myth such as making Lois Lane his First Lady, but also the reporter who brings him down.”

I’ll believe it when I see it. Jesse Eisenberg returning doesn’t make sense at all, considering the fact that he was one of the most disliked aspects of BVS.

I actually liked Jesse Eisenberg as Lex in BvS.

Also if they're going to do a Joker-style movie for Lex, I'm definitely all for it.

If they adapat kind of a 'Lex Luthor: Man of Steel' Lex personality, it could work!

No. These ancillary character movies need to stop being developed. I'd rather see the Aunt May movie.

It probably won't happen, the idea is interesting but the casting is terrible. I want more villian movies but not like this.

I'd be fine with this, but outside the DCEU and with a different actor.

Also, a world where Superman is mere fiction? No, I wouldn't want that. I'd prefer they did Superman the same way they did Bruce Wayne in Joker.

Eisenberg has potential.

Just give him a decent script.

Heck, just adapt that story into a movie. I think it'd work really well. In Luthor's own mind, he is the hero and it gives the audience a protagonist they can follow, but by the end of the story it's clear Luthor, no matter what he tries to tell himself, is the villain.

I really want to see that final line from Superman on the big screen.

If they do that then they need to focus on his childhood and finish with Lex Corps creation. It could be great but they have to show that Lex isn't crazy or even evil, he just wants to be a savior. Lex and Superman have a Dante and Virgil (DMC) relationship in the sense both want peace but one believes in free will, even with all the issues that come with it, and the other wants absolute power to enforce peace.

The idea behind is not bad. Could work. Just no more statements like this lol

Missed the Eisenberg thing. Tbh, I didn't hate him but the execution was definitely lacking.

I don't think the public likes Lex enough.

Joker is aesthetically pleasing because he's a crazy ass clown.

Lex is a bald business man.

The idea of a Lex Luthor movie that takes inspiration from Citizen Kane (like Joker took insporation from Taxi Driver) is really cool.

The idea of making Superman a purely fictional character in that situation is awful. Besides, we already saw Jesse Eisenberg do a Citizen Kane-like role in The Social Network.

From few movies I've seen Eisenberg could make a fine villain but he already had a chance at playing Luthor. I'd love to see Luthor movie but with someone else.

I'm fine with it, would be nice to see another character study like Joker but from the eyes of Lex. Someone said Lex isn't insane but he actually is.

If you’re going to make a Lex Luthor movie, it should Brian Cranston. He would be perfect for the role.
