Indeed. I do predict that audiences might actually be won over and end up siding with Luthor against Superman and agree to pointing fingers at him for all this. If that's the case, then this portrayal of him might actually be the best Lex Luthor ever and will probably steal the title of the definitive Lex Luthor from Clancy Brown/Michael Rosenbaum/Kevin Spacey/Gene Hackman.
