For those of you who have not been able to keep up with the casting rumours of the new Batman Superman film do not fear for we have this covered.
We found out earlier this week that Jesse Eisenberg has been cast as Lex Luthor, news possibly more controversial than when we found out Ben Affleck was to be donning the cape and cowl. Amongst all the people criticising the decision there are a few valid points with people pointing to Heath Ledger when he was cast as The Joker in Nolan’s Batman. I can understand the comparison however I always felt more confident in Christopher Nolan’s film and the more I hear about the Man of Steel the more I am losing faith in the project.
So far we have been told that Gal Gardot will play Wonder Woman and rumours of an Aquaman and Nightwing appearance are rife on the Internet so it seems DC are gearing up for a Justice League movie by introducing more than just Batman in the Man of Steel 2. With the addition of a young Lex Luthor I’m slightly worried with the direction this film seems to be taking but we will have to wait for the first trailer to properly judge the tone of the film but with the release date pushed back to 2016 we will have to wait even longer.
