Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding... Lex Zuckerberg Will Be Back in 'Justice League'


The last time we saw Jesse Eisenberg's singularly unique take on Lex Luthor, the character was festering in prison and talking about how "you can't unring that bell," or whatever...


While he didn't turn up, as rumored, in Suicide Squad, he will indeed be back to crazy up the joint all over again in the upcoming Justice League. According to Batman-News, Warner Brothers released a digital press kit for the film and it confirms that not only will Eisenberg appear in next November's attempt at rapid course correction, but Connie Nielsen's Queen Hippolyta will be on hand as well. 

While I realize that not everyone was as up on Eisenberg's take on the character as I was, I'm glad that they'll be tying him back in to the plot somehow. Hopefully Ciaran Hinds' Steppenwolf will break him out of prison and they'll hit the road together. In fact, how fucking awesome would it be if Justice League turned out to be a covert remake of Cannonball Run? That would be amazing. In fact, now I'm kinda hoping we get maybe a Burt Reynolds and cgi-Dom DeLuise cameo. Come on, Warner Brothers, if Disney can digitally resurrect Peter Cushing, you can do the same with Dom DeLuise!
