I’m going to try and stay as positive about this movie as possible, but having Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luther is really something I am against. The new Batmobile which looks like a cross between Keaton and Bale’s should be pretty fucking cool though.

Batman-News.com- Ray Fisher has been cast as Cyborg in Batman vs. Superman, Variety reports. Fisher is known best for his theater roles including the Broadway play “Fetch Clay, Make Man” where he portrayed Muhammad Ali. This news confirms the rumor from earlier this year, which stated that Zack Snyder was looking to cast a black superhero. According to Variety, Cyborg will be a minor character in Batman vs. Superman, leading up to a bigger part in the future Justice League movie that Warner Bros. appears to be building up to.

It seems like every time there is news on the new Batman vs. Superman movie it’s been disappointing. Seriously, Cyborg? Who the fuck is this guy? And no offense to Ray Fisher but who the fuck is THAT guy? At least with Batman they went with a name people recognize, even if Affleck was a polarizing choice, they knew his name. But if you are going to throw in a character from the “Teen Titans” storyline that 8 people know about (and I had to check on Wikipedia) then use an actor that people give a shit about. I really understand using a black superhero because let’s face it, it’s been pale face city amongst these comic book movies, but using a rarely known character and actor is just a bad move. Were Damon Wayans (or Damon Wayans Jr) too busy that Blankman couldn’t commit? Big swing and a miss execs.

Variety- Warner Bros. Pictures has cast Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Superman-Batman film. The castings, announced Friday, come two weeks after Warner pushed production on the untitled “Superman-Batman” movie to the second quarter of this year and set a release date of May 6, 2016 as the studio departed from a July, 2015 slot. Eisenberg is best known for portraying Facebook co-creator Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network,” for which he received an Oscar nomination. “Superman-Batman” is in pre-production with Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder is helming.

If you were unsure of how to ruin a franchise, this is exactly how you do it. First you push the release date back a god damn year. Then Ben Affleck as Batman is a stretch, past his chin and the ability to make his voice deep he doesn’t have much else to bring to the role. But the fucking weird kid from Social Network/Adventureland/Zombieland as the most intelligent, evil, ruthless foe Superman has? Go fuck yourself Zack Snyder. This kid has played the same wanna be quick talking Woody Allen character in every single one of his movies, there is no way he can be Luthor. Even in the shitty, yet strangely watchable, Superman Returns they knew to bring in Kevin Spacey for Lex Luthor. I’m sure Bryan Cranston would be more than willing to keep his head shaved for a big paycheck and he would absolutely kill in this part. It’s an iconic role that I can’t even get my mind around how this loser can pull off. Either way I will be there day one because I’m also a loser who has to see every superhero movie ever made. Again, fuck you Snyder.

Jeremy Irons is a solid Alfred. Guy barely does any movies but he always kills. (Lion King reference)
