Lex Luthor Justice League

For the sequel to “Man Of Steele” director Zack Snyder has made the controversial decision to cast nerd de jour Jesse Eisenberg (“Zombieland,” “Adventureland,” “Rio”) to play Superman’s nemesis, Lex Luthor. Already reeling from the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, fans were wondering if Snyder was purposely trying to tank the success of the movie from the jump.

“Let’s not forget he was nominated for an Academy Award. It’s not like I just grabbed my friend to play the guy! This guy’s the real deal,” Snyder said in Eisenberg’s defense.

Indeed, the closest the mousy Eisenberg has come to being a villain was in his convincingly distant and mercurial portrayal of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg in the Oscar nominated film, “The Social Network.” Could he possibly tap into the energy that makes us all love and hate the owner of the world’s most ubiquitous social network?  We took one of the most intense scenes from the film and remixed it with a showdown between Lex Luthor and Superman from “The Justice League.” It might change your mind.
