So that Social Network dude is still playing Lex In the new movie? That was one of the worst casting mistakes ever!


[Luthor will] definitely be played by a different person ... I don't know the history as well as the people making the movie, so I guess it's up to them to figure out how much they want to separate it from previous incarnations.

There's no way to play the history of the character played by other people, unless you do some kind of wink, but that doesn't seem like a responsible way to act. (Jesse Eisenberg, 2014)


Jesse, the responsible way to do it is to have an actor be LEX LUTHOR - a strong, assertive, brilliant, evil-genius MAN, and not some scrawny, baby-faced, wimpy lunatic.  
Well, that shows how much Eisenberg was right about NOT portraying Lex again.
I didn’t like Superman Returns but Spacey did an adequate job as Lex.

I liked his performance. Spacey's Luthor was not very talkative, but very cruel and sinister.  His gang of thugs were effectively vicious.

Yeah. And I quite liked that scene with the thugs putting the beatdown on a kryptonite-suffering Superman.
Still, that movie lacked some drama among other things. It had a couple of good pieces but mostly it was bland and not too likeable.
