He'll probably be a billionaire tech mogul. Bear in mind that Mark Zuckerberg is only 29.
And Eisenberg himself is 30.

Huh. I looked him up on Wikipedia to find out his age and also learned that he was actually born just one week before I was. I thought I was older than him by a year or two.

Oh, I didn't realise that. Surname should've given it away, I suppose but I assumed it was shortened from a longer name.

Also Cavill and Eisenberg are the same age.

So probably no bratty tech geek jumping up and down when Superman messes up their plans

Eisenberg is just shorter than Cavill

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

He's a confident and charismatic actor who plays the fast-talking geek quite well and I can see him as a Zuckerberg-style tech billionaire, but is this angle right for Man of Steel?

And Jeremy Irons as Alfred doesn't come as a surprise. I could have sworn that someone around here suggested it. Someone somewhere did and he's been in my head as a possibility.

As long as he stays away from real estate.

This Zuckerberg-style Lex Luthor could work very well, but it's going to be incredibly easy to screw up.

Two fine actors join the cast. I see no problems with this.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I loved Man of Steel.

But I really, really hate Jesse Eisenberg. He's just so smarmy and arrogant. While that is an aspect of Lex, I prefer the Lex who is the hero of his own story, the savoir of the planet or he would be if that damned alien wasn't stealing all his thunder and attention.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Why does everyone assume that actors are only around to reprise their famous roles in new settings? Eisenberg is a talented actor who is capable of doing more than just Zuckerberg, and would probably shave his head for the part. It would be nice to see the movies use Morrison's version of Lex (it could get them a serious Red Bull endorsement) but however Lex is written I am sure that Eisenberg can do it.

Not the kind of Lex that I was expecting. The only movie I've seen Eisenberg in is Zombieland, and I enjoyed him in that. I'm not to worried.

FWIW, they were the same age in the Silver/Bronze Age comics mythos.

They were old high school best friends, in fact. How old is Lex in the new 52? It seems like he is a few years older but not too many, sort of like the Smallville Lex.

That said, actors don't have to play their specific age.

I guess, for me, I have only seen Eisenberg play the same type of character over and over, I haven't really seen him play against his type, other types. Always the same. While he's really good at it, I just don't know of any other roles where he has surprised me.
