WB has just announced that Jessie Eisenberg (Social Network, Zombieland) will be playing Lex Luthor in the upcoming 2016 Batman V.S. Superman movie with Jeremy Irons playing Alfred.

This should be good.

Note my first choice but I like him so...

@jphu8414: I don't think he's a bad choice at all, after watching Social Network, I can see him as a young Lex Luthor, the only thing that works against him in many eyes is age but if he's written well, it's a refreshing take to be honest.

@youknowwhattodo: Indeed, he is quite young but we shall wait and see

Jeremy Irons as Alfred is perfect though (IMO)! He was my first choice

Oh no no no no no no no no no no..

And they made such a good decision with Jeremy Irons as Alfred. I'm sorry but I'm dropping the mic on this one, I'm not a hater, loved Ben Affleck as Batman. This is awful. I'm sorry but this is sh*t. I'm usually a, 'hey, let's see how it pans out' kinda guy, but this has fail written all over it.
