While we wait for the next big Batman vs. Superman announcement, we have a handful of news tidbits regarding the hotly anticipated film. Speaking with Empire Online, former Lex Luthor Kevin Spacey – who played the Man of Steel’s arch nemesis in 2006’s Superman Returns – shared his thoughts on Jesse Eisenberg taking over the role. “First of all, I think [Jesse Eisenberg] is a remarkable actor. He’s just going to [bleep]ing own it. I think it’s a great idea and I wish him the best with it.” He then goes on to talk about exploring “different terrain”, and wanting to work with directors such as Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese.
While many fans have wanted Spacey to play Luthor before Superman Returns, it’s commonly agreed that he was not given the proper material to play a truly great take on the character. You can thank the movie’s being as close to the Christopher Reeve era as possible for that.
In other Batman vs. Superman news, Gal Gadot posted another selfie from the gym as she prepares to play Wonder Woman on Facebook. While this one doesn’t mark her progress as well as a more muscular image she shared recently, it does show her having a bit of fun. A first look at Gadot in her Wonder Woman garb is expected to come within the coming weeks, alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman suit and Henry Cavill’s new Superman costume.
Batman vs. Superman (not the final title) is scheduled to hit theaters May 6th, 2016. The follow-up to Man of Steel, the next installment in the DC Cinematic Universe stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne. Zack Snyder directs from a script by David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio.
