Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
See my edit above. I just don't want him to ever display hatred. That's derived from weakness in my opinion. I want him to have that unwavering confidence that Moriarty has. That final scene of the last episode of Sherlock where Moriarty gets upset when he thinks Sherlock is "ordinary" is fantastic. He's disappointed that he's that much superior and it makes his life boring again.
This would serve both to give Superman a formidable opponent and to humanize Superman.
