I am beyond asspained that there have been 7 Superman movies and Lex Luthor has been treated like a joke in all of them.

This legitimately looks to be the worst Luthor yet.
>>
>>77895378
This is literally Christopher Reeves era Lex but younger and I guess "crazier"

It's because they think the audience only knows that version of Lex and they're too afraid to make him more comic book accurate even though the seem to be doing it with everyone else.
>>
From the trailer it seems like Luthor is only playing this quirky Hickman'esque persona in public, while hes much more thoughtful and sinister in private.
>>
>>77895663
>while hes much more annoying and louder in private.
Fixed that for you

There is only one hope left for DCEU Lex.

Jesse is Lex Jr and dies, Lex Sr is played by Mark Strong and vowed revenge on Superman.

At least he is not a real estate agent this time.

I am beyond asspained that the trailer gave away the whole plot.

Why?

Lex Luthor IS a joke.
>>
>>77895378
I'm so repulsed by that actor. everything about him is so cringy worthy.
He already ruins the movie for me
>>
>>77895378
What does he say about "power" in the trailer?
>>
>>77895859
It seemed like a very predictable plot, honestly.
>>
>>77895805
How confirmed is it that Lex is Lex Jr?

I hope Sr is in the background, probably with Jr trying to get his attention by fucking up Supes. Maybe Sr working on a bigger plan than Jr's childish shit, Jr actively antagonising and Sr is plotting in the shadows.

My perfect Lex Luthor would be pic related. But I'm probably alone in that. I just think he looks like DCAU one. And he's buff and bald already.
>>
>>77895849

It's okay I kek'd.
>>
>>77896411

I was about to bring him up. I think I've only seen the first season of it, so I can't speak fully but Smallville Luthor seemed like the best we got.

Plus there is the fact that he voiced Flash too which was fun.
>>
>>77895378
Is Luthor trying to outquip Ultron?
>>
>>77895859
You're asspained that a movie building towards the Justice League, with the words Dawn of Justice in its title, gave away that Batman and Superman would be friends in the end?
>>
>>77896580

Exactly. Otis aside he's really not dumb comedy man like the sequels showed him as.
>>
HE PLAYS THE SAME CHARACTER IN EVERY FUCKING MOVIE
>>
>>77895378

Luthor is like John Goldberg and trying to troll Batman into attacking Superman is what it looks like. When that doesn't work he makes Doomsday or maybe he's using Bruce to help make it.

The only reason "CIA" is a "meme" character is because /tv/ is full of braindead idiots who absolutely refused to let a joke die despite the fact there was never a joke in the first place.

Do you realize that they've never done that characterization in a movie? Only in Smallville and to a lesser degree Lois and Clark.
>>
>>77898455
I think it's more that *they* know that version of Lex and that's who they think is the real version.

Plenty of people know Lex from other media like the Clancy Brown animated version. I remember when I was a kid I didn't read any Superman comics, but I'd absorbed enough about Lex Luthor to find Gene Hackman's version a little too non-threatening. (DC characters are often better in promo art than they are in actual comic book stories anyway.) But filmmakers are in love with Donner's Superman and that means its Lex is their Lex.

Well, that's because in this film, is basically is The Joker. Don't any of you lie and say you didn't get vibes of Ledger's Joker. Also, his hair is almost the same as Ledger as well.

In all seriousness what movie should I watch to see Jessie Eisenberg not being that one smug semi-autistic smart/nerd character?
I like the guy's movies (Now You See Me was especially good IMO) but all the ones I've seen have him in that exact same role.
>>
>>77896371
My issue with Hackman Lex isn't his characterisation, it's his motivations. They're really lame and generic.

Also Hackman never had a face that screamed 'Lex' to me. Eisenberg's face actually is pretty Lexy.

Not really. Ledger Joker believed everyone was as awful as him. I get the impression that this Lex thinks that no one is as great as him.
