Eisenberg as Lex is the out of the box casting by Snyder, I am just happy that it's not someone like Hackman or Spacey type.

Like I said before, he's my most anticipated CB movie villain this year. Hope Jesse's Lex ends up winning over the crowd who don't see him as much of a serious threat.

I hope so too I really think he has the potential to join that top tier level of supervillain that only a select few have gotten to

I hope that stress ball is in the movie. It would be a great character tic.

That Turkish A.L. Comercial is the best Luthor I've seen of Jeese.

Eisenberg was nothing BUT Lex Luthor in that damn tv spot, which is why I'm hoping this film is REALLYYYY good cause I don't want what I feel is going to be a very surprising performance wasted.

Drew McWeeny says he's heard that Eisenberg is great. So that's awesome.

One thing that I'm very curious about is whether this version of Lex will have an established criminal (albeit a secret) history where he's been able to get away with many things due to his riches and influences or whether the events of this film marks the first time that he ventures into villainous territory.

They pretty much lamp shaded that Lex plotted his old man's death so... No. I think he's been rotten to the core for a long time. He's just never thought of himself that way... Until defeat makes him understand that he's indeed the "villain" of the piece.

Guy mentions near the end that Cavill and Affleck told him that 'Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor really makes the movie'.

Watched the second full trailer just now... I really think the devil Lex is referring to may be himself and not his creation.

I don't think he would refer to himself as the devil.

Well Lex on Smallville recognized his destiny as "the villain" and Lex strikes me as the type that would use charged metaphors. I could see him embracing what others would think of him. I like to imagine Lex feels above the morality of the masses.

Oh true, if it is at the end of the film I could see him saying it.
