New interview with Lex:
>'Lex Luthor on disrupting the vigilante industrial complex'

>The impending launch of his company’s revolutionary new operating system Lex/OS (I got my hands on the beta and, yeah, it’s awesome) seemed like the perfect moment to sit down with the dynamic and, at times, controversial, young genius behind the LexCorp magic to see what else he’s got up his sleeve.

>THE ELEVATOR DOORS open and I step into the opulent Royal Penthouse Suite at the Park Metropolis Downtown. Eleven lavish bedrooms, each with its own floor-to-ceiling Italian marble bath, a 100-seat cinema/lecture hall, a four-lane bowling alley (two standard American, one duckpin, one Belgian feather), twin helipads and its own private Caffè Bene. In other words: exactly what you’d expect for $95,000 a night.

>Of course, no one’s actually staying here. This is just the space he’s rented for my fifteen-minutes-but-more-like-ten, no-holds-barred-except-several interview.
>>
>If I didn’t know better, I’d think billionaire tech wunderkind Lex Luthor was trying to intimidate me.

>RON TROUPE: Nice digs.

>LEX LUTHOR: We’re not doing that.

>RON TROUPE: Doing what?

>LEX LUTHOR: We’re not opening with a wide-eyed layman’s description of the hotel room that makes me look unrelatable just to set up a dramatic twist wherein, lo and behold, you discover I’m surprisingly down-to-earth because I know the score of the last Metros game.

>RON TROUPE: Do you?

>LEX LUTHOR: Metros 102, Guardsmen 86.

>RON TROUPE: Weird. (it’s the correct “relatable” small talk, but coming out of him, it sounds less like a basketball score than a set of algebraic integers.)

>LEX LUTHOR: Which is why we’re not doing it.
>>
>RON TROUPE: Would you say you’re a man who’s always gotten what he wants?

>LEX LUTHOR: Nice pivot. Here’s mine: What I want is to leave the planet in better shape for the next generation. To make the world and its children safer. I want it. And I bet you do too, Ron.

>RON TROUPE: You sound like someone running for political office.

>LEX LUTHOR: If that matches their rhetoric, then maybe I should pay more attention to the candidates; I might want to back a few of them. The world is changing faster than we anticipated; we’ve all seen it. More than ever, we need leaders who not only comprehend the new threats facing us, but who will seriously and thoughtfully address them.

>RON TROUPE: You’ve been very vocal about that. About the new superhuman threat.

>LEX LUTHOR: Well I don’t know where you got that term. I think to be a super human, one should begin by being, you know, from this planet.
>>
>>78248007
The fact that Wayne enterprises is only 97 Million makes me kind of sad
>>
>RON TROUPE: Bad choice of words?

>LEX LUTHOR: We should all be careful when we elevate anyone, human or alien, to “super” status.

>RON TROUPE: Because we’re all equal.

>LEX LUTHOR: Well that’s just absurd. No – I’m saying we need to be selective and elevate the right people. The right human people.

>RON TROUPE: And what are your thoughts on the Batman? He’s human. Presumably.

>LEX LUTHOR: Well, he is. In fact, I’d say he’s all too human. Any objective analyst will tell you that his brand of justice, vigilantism, is painfully outmoded, designed to be effective in an age when the law carried billy clubs because crime carried knives. The most dangerous guy on the street worked in the shadows because he was cowardly and superstitious. That’s all you needed to play upon in order to disrupt their operations. You want to clean up the streets? Dress up like the boogeyman, switch on a fog machine and lower your voice.

>RON TROUPE: When you put it that way, it sounds ridiculous.

>LEX LUTHOR: It didn’t when the Batman first appeared, but that was a long time ago. This is a new world, Ron, and it’s time to get serious.

>LEX LUTHOR: Look at it from the other side: today, there are more criminals than ever. If you’re a criminal, that means more competition. So if you’re going to survive in that economy, you have to be better; you have to edge out your rivals. Shouldn’t the same be true for those on the side of the law? If justice is going to survive in the new global paradigm, we have to get better, invest in new disruptive technologies, think outside Pandora’s Box. Who has the resources to do it? The government? No; the only thing holding that old purse together is a thick layer of impenetrable red tape. Vigilantes like the Batman? Not unless they have access to vast amounts of untold riches.

>RON TROUPE: Like you.

>LEX LUTHOR: I’m not a vigilante.
>>
>RON TROUPE: Maybe not in the traditional sense. But you are investing a good deal of your personal wealth in the area of defense and specifically the kinds of disruptive technologies you just referenced, even as you’ve been turned down time and again for the kinds of government contracts that would make those investments profitable. One man working outside the government to clean up the streets? Sure sounds like—

>LEX LUTHOR: I’m going to stop you because your facts are as wrong as your characterization. If you want to understand me, understand this: I’m a businessman with long-term global investments; I would be in breach of my fiduciary responsibility if I didn’t work to protect the planet. I’m not just counting on humanity, I’m betting on it.

>RON TROUPE: Let’s go back. You mentioned the government. What role do they play in your “new global paradigm”?

>LEX LUTHOR: Last week, I would have given you a totally different answer.
>>
>>78248062
We hippie oliver now
>>
>RON TROUPE: What changed?

>LEX LUTHOR: Let’s just say I ran into a wall. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail here. Suffice it to say the dangers we’ve been talking about are very real. And they’re not just limited to a couple of alien brawlers able to level tall buildings in a single bout. I’m ready to sit down with whatever task force the government has assembled — in the interest of sharing intelligence and building solutions together. If she… they… Argus… the government, whatever you want to call it, has a real interest in fighting for the future, they ought to work with those of us who are already on the front lines.

>RON TROUPE: I’m sorry, can we— what is Argus?

>LEX LUTHOR: What. Is. Argus. Spelled A.R.G.U.S.

(At first I think he’s asking me; then Luthor’s assistant hands him a phone and he reads off search results.)
>>
>LEX LUTHOR: The name of five different warships – all sunken or broken up; a pheasant-like peafowl hunted for sport; an automobile that went extinct; Greek mythology’s favorite faithful mutt… LEX/OS lists seventeen hundred entries. I’d go on, but they’re all pretty much the same.

>RON TROUPE: That was fast.

>LEX LUTHOR: Point zero seven seconds. But we can save all that for the launch announcement; I don’t want to obscure my point: The new threats facing us are real. And they’re growing. It’s past time for a radical rethink of our rusted-out lines of defense. If I have a philosophy here, it’s this: You don’t solve a multiplication problem with division. Unite, or die. The public and the private sectors have to work together to create the next generation of defense technologies necessary to literally save the world. This is the future, and lone gunmen and caped crusaders aren’t worth the ink it takes to print their name in a footnote.
>>
>RON TROUPE: Do you think that’s what your father would say?

>LEX LUTHOR: My father would say that offense wins games. But he’s dead and I say you’re only as good as your defense.

>RON TROUPE: This all sounds suspiciously like a manifesto.

>LEX LUTHOR: Ron. Guys with manifestos don’t bring bowling shoes to interviews. Do you roll? Come on. Right now. I will destroy you.

RON TROUPE lives in Metropolis with his fiancée Lucy under a dangerously tall stack of fast food wrappers and old LexCorp business filings

>>78249553

Nah, I've got it figured out. Remember how there was that crazy "Captain Boomerang" freak running around Central City a little while ago, and now suddenly he's just disappeared from the media?

>>78249531
Are you high? In the comics, $97 million is a drop in the fucking bucket for Wayne Enterprises.

I mean, he spent something like $30 billion on that suit that he used to take on the League. $97 million for a plane and an exosuit is chump change compared to that.

Pretty much this. Waynecorp and Lexcorp flip flop a ton when it comes to who is richer.
>>
>>78249531
Dude Bruce Wayne is a multi billionaire. 100 mil is not shit. In the comics he's worth about 6.2 billion dollars.
>>
>>78249642
Along with steel, food, consumer electronics, aerospace, construction, entertainment, automotive, communications, medical care, shipping, industry, and about a dozen others...

You have to remember, Wayne Enterprises in the comics is basically General Electric multiplied by two, with more diversity.

Yep. Other corporations may do their things good, but Wayne Enterprises is hilariously diverse. Ferris maybe can make better plane, but Wayne can make hundred cheaper ones or some analogy like that.
>>
>>78249708
Forbes came up with that calculation for Nolan's Batman. In the comics, 6.2 billion is a fraction of his personal net worth.

>>78249754

>$97 million is a drop in the fucking bucket for Wayne Enterprises.
Exactly. So why is it spending so little on R and D?
>>78249708
>100 mil is not shit
When one company is dumping 2 Billion? Yeah. 100 mil is completely shit.

I'm not saying Bruce is poor. All I'm asking is why Wayne Enterprises is spending so little on R and D? You don't lead the industry by spending the least on R and D than the rest of your competitors. You spend money to make money, and as >>78249712 >>78249754 and >>78249827 said, Wayne Enterprises is usually shown as being a providers of diverse high quality products across multiple industries. Are they trying to say that the military contract pay is what boosts the budgets, and Wayne has the lowest because it refuses pursuing any of them? I just feel like I'm missing something in that graph...and its bugging the shit out of me for some reason I can't understand.
>>
>>78249881
I was thinking the same thing.
>>
>>78249912
Dude's pacifist. Big deal. Or he simply doesn't give a fuck since money he currently has is enough for supermodels and shit.
>>
>>78249912
The infographic is specifically about defense spending. If Waynecorp doesn't take defense contracts, whats the point of spending anything on defnese R&D? Their R&D budget is focused on other aspects of their portfolio.

That's only Defense R&D budgets. Wayne will have much larger R&D spending in other areas.
>>
>>78249912
My theory is, a sizeable part of Batmans job is beating up people who invent dangerous new technology and stockpiling it. So they don't need to do so much r&d at Wayne tech, Bruce might just deliver much of it to Lucius who refines it into less insane purposes.

It's weird, it's like he gets older every now an again and than just looks young out of no where.

Anon, calm down and read the thread.

Even though Wayne Enterprises is just as powerful as LexCorp, Bruce doesn't go for military contracts. More specifically, he won't allow Wayne Enterprises to be directly involved in the production of weapons, for obvious reasons.

And in any case, this specifically measures R&D budgets. Pretty much the only reason Wayne Enterprises has any money at all in defense R&D is because Bruce needs a Batwing and an exosuit to combat Superman. If he didn't need those two things, Wayne Enterprises probably wouldn't have put any money at all into defense, for the reasons stated above.
>>
>>78250016
Even weirder is that there's no that kid for years. Batman is solo act now, from what I could dig on Internet.
>>
>>78249912
Wayne Enterprises is spending only $97ml on R&D for military contracts. Read the infographic. Weapons, vehicles, etc. It's always been well established that Bruce doesn't like developing weapons for the government while Lex does and has large influence in the Pentagon. Wayne Enterprises largely focuses on civilian applications, their Tech R&D budget for computers, electronics, medical, etc. is substantial.

So long as he owns 51%, he doesn't have to explain a thing. And if the accountants and lawyers and IRS shows up, what are they gonna do? Its not like they'd discover the cave. Hell, if rumors are to be believed, Bruce isn't even going to be living in the mansion. He's just going to be in a small side house living a much more humble life than you'd expect a person with his wealth would be. So if there is no proof of anything he is spending the money on, what can they do? Accuse him of burning the $97 Million?

There's always that possibility, but think about it.

How many people would be familiar enough with the design of a fairly obscure testbed prototype to recognize it as belonging to Wayne Enterprises?

Further, look at how fast it is. Who's going to get a good enough look at it, especially at night? The chances are even less so if it's actually attacking you.

Unless there is a by law that dictates a higher majority is necessary for board decisions, it absolutely is. Majority ownership of the company is the biggest trump card a President/CEO can have, and there is next to nothing a board can do other than get pissed off and throw dirty looks if they are dissatisfied over something. So long as every other division of Wayne Enterprises is profitable enough to overshadow the potential "loss" of the $97 Million however, no one would give a shit. At the end of the day, R and D investment is never a sure thing. There is always a risk that you're never going to get something profitable out of it. It is speculative by its very nature, which is why companies really tend to only make investment in things that are as sure a thing as anything can be, but that doesn't mean there are never busts. As other anons have already said however, $97 Million is peanuts as a budget compared to what the R and D budgets of other divisions of Wayne Enterprises almost certainly are, and if the majority of those investments brings back something that can generate enough revenue to cover $97 Million, you might get a stickler, but on the whole no one would mind. Keep in mind, that for us $97 Million looks like a lot of money in a vacuum, but to board members of a multi Billion dollar earning corporation, it is just the risk of doing developmental business. And if Bruce Wayne loads your pockets with multi Million dollar quarterly dividends by adhering to a business plan that avoids Military contracts, and out of the blue sandbags the shit out of something he describes as a longshot pet project, that some board members probably voice skepticism about, but the cost of it is next to nothing compared to the cost of everything else, I can totally see a board not batting an eye, and maybe even taking a couple of playful jabs if Bruce comes back and says there was nothing that ending up coming out of his silly pet project.

You remember all of those "important meetings" he had with DC about a crossover with the movie universe and how he caught feelings when he realized that he wasn't in fact going to get cast? I know a lot of Arrowfans are going to disagree on this point too, but he was not defending Grant when the Flash casting was announced, he was still salty that the DCEU wasn't going to crossover with Arrow!Verse, he just used Grant as an excuse to vent.

They had romantic tension in the beggining

And even well into the last season there were some very subtle hints
>>
>>78250708
The trailers have basically shown us two different sides of Lex: the witty, fast-talking, cheery Lex (when he's in public, like at the party) and the calmer, more sinister, more condescending Lex (when he's in private, like his meeting with the senator or in the rooftop with Lois).

Since the 'private Lex' scenes are probably more closely tied to plot points they may be trying to keep them secret.
>>
>>78250563
See? Now you're getting it.
>>
>>78250708
Yeah these interviews are great, and all we've seen of Lex is him doing his public persona of ingratiating millenial ceo. That and a few portentious lines which I liked.
>>
>>78250806
Spot on there anon

You know, it's funny. People are complaining that the last trailer showed too much, when in all likelihood it was intended to do almost the exact opposite.
>>
Would they actually do Green Arrow? Id hate to get my hopes up for a good interpretation, because I could totally see the CW Show preventing it from ever happening
>>
>>78250838
I can understand people thinking they showed too much (to a certain extent); it's one thing the know that Bats and Supes end up on friendly terms, it's another thing to show them fight (and reveal) a villain side-by-side.

But yeah, besides that reveal the trailer didn't really reveal anything new, at least not any more than the previous ones.

>trusting Zack Snyder tailers after the bait and switch that was MoS
Anon...
Totally agree though. Honestly, I loved this Lex's dialogue. Oddly and sacraligiously enough, I tried imagining Clancy Brown saying it, but it was too frenetic for him. Eisenberg on the other hand fit it perfectly, and honestly, this is exactly what I envisioned when he was first announced. I was okay with the casting then, and am now. Of course he'll have a couple of quips. Nothing makes a character more frightening than when they are telling jokes while doing something terrible. That doesn't mean he's going to be a Marvel character. I expect him to be his Zuckerberg with balls. Maybe Steve Jobs is a better comparison? The genius in the room who knows hes the genius in the room, knows you aren't, and isn't afraid to tell you, and occasionaly belittle you because of it.
What I find interesting however is how public he is against Superman. I had thought there was going to be a false attempt at camraderie before a betralal, but no. He's just against Superman from the get go, and is pro-human and anti-alien, which are facets I don't think the character has ever explored on the big screen. I still think he's gonna be great.
>>
>>78248552
>Luthor already has characterization

Describe him in terms that haven't been spoken by other characters in the trailer and aren't just you reading or rephrasing the marketing push.

If you can't, he hasn't been properly characterized. At this stage, before the movie has even released, that's sort of fine? You'd expect the heavy lifting to be done by the actual movie. Think about it when you're watching, though. If he's being characterized in terms of prior movie references or by people just saying what he is, opera-style, then it's bad.
>>
What's everyone's guess about the Flash cameo? I think he won't be in costume but he won't just be a blur either, probably Ezra Miller will appear at some point.
>>
>>78250802
The producers chose to drop any suggestion that the new Steve and Wonder Woman were anything more than good friends. Indeed, when an imposter posing as Steve Jr. attempted to seduce Diana, she made it quite clear that she had no sexual interest in him. Executive producer Douglas S. Cramer noted the difficulties in maintaining long-term romantic tension between leads, because the resolution of that romantic tension often results in the cancellation of the series.[13]Also, Wonder Woman had fallen in love with the first Steve Trevor. It would not have been the best writing decision to have her fall in love with both father and son.
>>
>>78250955
Not his 20s. There were plenty of underage combatants in that war, most countries ran a bounty system for their recruiting officers, so they tended not to look too hard at the paperwork and took a lot on trust. For a lot of the younger combatants it was peer pressure and the promise of pay and hot meals. When it started coming out it was a huge scandal.

Some of them may have been as young as 12, though those would be extreme cases, and early in the war. By the end though even 16 year olds were being drafted.

Yeah, I think that if he does have a cameo, it will probably be either as a forensic scientist or just a blur.
The concept art at SDCC had him in his lab coat with gloves so that might mean it's more likely than an in-costume appearance.

>>78250968
I wouldnt say his public message is totally anti-superman, but rather reminding the public that we shouldnt put all of our faith in him and strive to better ourselves. He's playing both angles.

To be fair, that rumor comes from a supposed 'leaker' here on /co/ and those are almost never right (although those threads are pretty fun).

We know there's a scene in SS where they're hanging out at a bar so maybe they'll swap stories there.
>>
>>78251144
Glad I could help anon.
>>
>>78251156
Not saying the leaker was valid, BUT he did reply to questions almost instantly and did not contradict if I recall. At the very least it was a fun read that honestly wasnt that bad of a plot if true.
>>
>>78251028
>Indeed, when an imposter posing as Steve Jr. attempted to seduce Diana, she made it quite clear that she had no sexual interest in him.

This was just because she noticed Steve wouldn't act like the imposter was acting, and this was in the first episode of the second season, while they had romantic tension on later episodes (pic related: 2nd episode)

It could have been the reason in part, but other reasons were more relevant. Like the fact that not only they didn't share the same amount of screen time after a while, but also that Steve rarely interacted with her as Wonder Woman, instead with Diana Prince more often.

That's not a hard thing to do, he probably wrote up most of it beforehand. Also there was that article from a french magazine that came out just after that seemed to confirm what he said. Then that turned out to be fake. Makes me think the whole thing was just well planned trolling.
>>
>>78251239
And he could just say he didn't know if anyone asked something he hadn't tought of beforehand
>>
>>78251186
Oh I agree and I would also be happy with that plot but without proof of some kind I think it's best to think of it as speculation..

Why is it creepy? He never went anywhere with Peggy beyond a kiss and he started liking Sharon without knowing she really was related to Peggy.

Also all the real creepiness in the comics was Cap liking Sharon because she reminded him of his old WWII girlfriend to the point he was ready to propose to her without even knowing her name but Waid retconned that and wrote an issue that had how Steve fell gor Sharon.

Also you don't know how it's common for people to date their ex's siblings after they had a relationship and in the case of Sharon and Peggy they are more like grand aunt and grand niece so it's not really icky.

I like the characterization of Lex in this interview, but I'm still not sold on Eisenberg's ability to properly convey the essential essence of Lex Luthor. Yes, I guess I am saying "not muh Lex", but so what? He may well end up being a great villain, but that won't mean much to me if he isn't a great Luthor.

I agree to a point but much like Supes just starting out and teenage Spidey, he'll ostensibly have a number of films and a decade or so to make the role his. Not a bad starting set up.

>>78254196
I think he can pull it off.
He's good with 'quiet intensity' and displaying condescension and things like that (like the scene from the trailer with Lois) so, if written properly, I think he can be a great Luthor, even if a bit different from the comics.

There's a scene from The Social Network that I particularly like that gives me a Lex vibe:

I suppose so, but I prefer to judge movies based on the film itself, not what it may be building up towards. Maybe Eisenberg will "grow into" the role, but I don't think he could ever quite have the physical presence that I typically associate with Luthor. I see Lex as being the embodiment of all the best and the worst traits that mankind has to offer. He's the archetypal Renaissance Man, in many ways the height of human achievement both physically and mentally, but prone to obsession, vanity, narcissism, cruelty, and delusions of grandeur.

Obviously they're going for more of the mental/scientist side of Lex this go around, and there is merit in that, but I'll need to see the movie before I can say with real certainty that Eisenberg is capable of pulling it off without feeling like a different character altogether.

I think what keeps me from embracing him is the quality of his voice, particularly in that sequence. I think he has the attitude down, but his voice just feels so fragile. Weak. The words are right, but the force behind them isn't. Hearing them, I'm not intimidated. It's like...not quite a whine, but something on the cusp of a whine, if that makes sense. There's a waver that he just can't quite seem to get rid of the soils things for me.

Absolutely agree with your points, somehow i'm cautiously optimistic though, I enjoyed the characterization in this interview.

>He's the archetypal Renaissance Man, in many ways the height of human achievement both physically and mentally, but prone to obsession, vanity, narcissism, cruelty, and delusions of grandeur.

True, I recently read this interesting article on AI/consciousness/prolonging human lifespan and it just clicked that this Lex seems like one of these "transhumanists," and some sort of Brainiac angle could come along with it

I definitely understand that, I also think his voice is a bit too high pitched and 'frail' but hopefully it works with his portrayal.

Yes, I do think that this Lex would qualify as someone with transhumanist leanings. Though the same could be said for Lex in general, in that he is invested in uplifting humanity so that it can reach its fullest potential (an objective he often loses sight of in his obsession to best Superman).

>>78254609

It likely will work with this particular interpretation, since that's the kind of character they're clearly building. I suppose it might be trying to make a statement such as "this is the kind of person that would become a Lex Luthor in this day and age". As I said though, I'm not entirely sold on it. I guess you could say I'm cautiously pessimistic. It's too early to judge with certainty.

Yeah, between Megan Fox who'll hog most of the human camera time for Q&A shots and Turtles being the lead title, it'll be like if he wasn't there at all.

Well, that's not a bad perspective to have; hopefully it works and you like it anon.

Not surprised, tumblr is creepy, one of them bit Norman Reedus at a Walker Stalker con and he got traumatized afterwards.
