Batman Vs. Superman - New Castings

This movie might not be surfacing until May 2016 but the casting for Batman Vs. Superman keeps a coming and now we've got actors confirmed for both Lex Luthor and Alfred Pennyworth.

Jesse Eisenberg, best known for his roles in movies such as The Social Network and 30 Minutes Or Less has been cast in the role of Lex Luthor. The 30 year old actor will be playing the legendary enemy of Henry Cavill's Clark Kent/Superman in the second movie. I have to admit, while I do like Eisenberg as an actor, his casting does seem a little left field and the fact that he's a tiny bit younger than Cavill is interesting. I'll keep an open mind though.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Irons who recently appeared in the TV series, The Borgias has been locked in to play the role of Alfred Pennyworth, the butler to Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne/Batman. I have to admit this is pretty interesting casting. It'll be interesting to see who else gets announced for this sequel over the next few months as well as seeing Affleck in his Bat costume as well.

Casting Details:

Batman Vs. Superman is scheduled for release on May 6th 2016.
