Oh Zod it's happened again
Out of all of the possible outcomes there are for Lex's fate at the end of this film, which route would you guys prefer seeing taken in the film?
1. Lex being arrested and sent to Prison
2. Lex being on the run and his company's reputation in flames
3. Lex avoiding Prison time, with the Trinity's victory proving to be only a minor setback for him
Honestly... I want Lex to be in prison... SENT THERE BY THE ARTICLES OF EITHER LOIS OR CLARK.
He can be kept on ice, since we know they can find some way to rationalize his presence in another film. I mean... A scene where Jesse, using his genius as Lex alone escapes a Super Max prison would be fun as hell.
On that note, I'm still kind of hoping that he'll have some kind of cameo in Suicide Squad if he ends up going to Prison at the end of this film.
I mean I remember reading rumors about it but nothing ever really came out of it after awhile.
Lex goes to prison at the end of BvS. Then Lex will be on suicide squad sequel .
Yeah it seemed like he was supposed to be part of the squad or something but the rumours went away after a while. I really hope if he does go to prison that he cameos in the film.
I'd prefer it if he got away.
It would be satisfying to see Lex's established world crumble around him due to his hatred and fear of Superman. But, I feel it's too early. He should remain untouchable for a little while longer in the series.
I hope we see him again before that. Suicide Squad sequel probably won't be out until late 2018/early 2019.
Charles Roven on Lex.
Lex avoids prison time, but he comes under government scrutiny following the events of this film; possibly losing his government contracts to Wayne Enterprises.
If they ever show Lionel Luther in the movie. I wish they would get Clancy Brown to portray him.
His dad's dead in this DCEU. But anyways, showing the bad guy's father (or mother, for that matter) always seems so emasculating for the villain and just plain weird to me. I get that some people liked the character of Lionel on Smallville, but surely showing a Lionel Luthor side by side with a Luthor in his prime (okay, Eisenberg's not exactly fully primed Luthor at this point, but I think we all expect him to be by the end of the film, right?) just feels like it would take away from the character of Lex Luthor, not add to it. It worked in Smallville because that Lex was still finding his place in the world and hadn't fully solidified his hatred for Clark. This Luthor, I'm assuming by the end of the film, will already be fully set in his ways of despising Superman and being his arch-nemesis.
With Lex been Alexander Luthor Jr in this world I think his Dad is Alexander Luthor SR so no one named Lionel in this universe.
I think for sure by the end of the film were gonna have a fully established Luthor. I really think Superman will throw him in jail by the end of the film and Lex will hate him even more. Can't wait to watch this Lex develop on film.
I'd like to see Lex get off scot-free
Bit of Lex from Empire,
I think Jesse is gonna be fantastic.
There should be a drinking game every time 'Chris Terrio' comes out of Jesse's mouth. That's some serious name-dropping over the past year or so.
Although props for acknowledging a screenwriter for once.
Would also tie in nicely to the Suicide squad universe.
From Empire's article about Amy/Lois. This part she's talking about Lex.
When I read the article Snyder's approach to casting Luthor struck as very similar to the way a lot fans approach their fancasts.
How so? I didn't get that at all.
Fancaster: I think actor X played a character similar to the one I want him/her to play so that's why I chose him/her.
An example would be the many fans who want Yvonne Strahovski to play Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers simply becuase she played a similar character on Chuck.
