Breaking Bat News: Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor in Batman VS. Superman

It looks as though Batman VS. Superman finally has its Lex.

Despite all the casting rumors that have been surrounding the movie, reports are streaming in that Jesse Eisenberg has officially taken the role of Lex Luthor in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. 

I'm not sure how we at The Movie Sleuth feel about this casting choice yet, but if he can play it as well as his part in The Social Network, we may have a winner on our hands. 

Alongside the casting of Eisenberg, it's been announced that Jeremy Irons will be taking on  the role of Alfred in this latest franchise entry. This is more than rumor as Warner Bros. has finally made an official casting announcement.
