The cool thing about a Moriarty-like Luthor is that he doesn't actually hate Superman. He just wants to prove he's better. The problem with hate is that for it to be believable, the writers have to come up with some kind of motivation.
I edited my post and included the reasons why he'd hate Superman. Also, this vid sums it up as well. A mixture of Moriarty and that version of Lex would be ideal imo. Oberon Sexton has the right idea.
