from the trailer, the characters feel very similar

seems a little campy to me
 
He's a clown. I don't like it.
 
I see more psychotic than camp. I guess if you want to see camp, thats what you will see.
 
He wouldn't do that little 'camp' act if the kid wasn't there. I agree psychotic is closer to it. After watching the trailer a few times, I think Spacey will be one the best thing about this movie. Very imposing when he's in the mood. Hackman was never imposing or projected a sense of power and authority like Spacey does.
 
I don't think he's psychotic he just likes to do bad things just like superman likes to do good things.
 
IMO is more similare to the mad Smallville Luthor
 
I like what i've seen so far of Spacey. He came off as really evil and psychotic. But really, it's hard to judge from a few lines in the trailer. Most of what I've heard is that Spacey's Luthor is really sadistic and evil, and rather scary. We'll have to see when the movie comes out though, I guess.

this is true spacey is god. :confused: the thing about the kid being there so he acts like a funnyman might be true too.
 
I dunno man to me he seemed off his head, he seemed more of a threat than hackman was.
 
that's just cuz he's not wearing a wig like this.

Bald = threatening.

Just my theory based on facts about how people react to something that doesn't seem normal.

Agreed. I don't think they're even close. Kev's Luthor is a different personality altogether. He actually looks bat**** insane.
 
i am now only waiting that some user will say that spacey is not a good actor.
 
Campy......

His "Wroooooong!!" line was ridiculous.
 
the wroooooooong line was incredible. from mr. nice guy to a mutha***er.
 
Gene hackman's luthor was psychotic too. :p

Lex 1: Do you want to see a long arm?

Lex 2: Bring it on!

i am afraid that spacey will be to good for this movie. this movie is about brandon. and if spacey to good than he will steal teh show from brandon.

I don't think so, Spacey will be even better, and that will help movie!

I saw a guy on a train wearing a shirt with that on it... I pissed myself :up:
 
Huh, to be honest, in that scene with Lois, I thought he was campier than Hackman... It´s not even the lines, it´s all the over-the-top mannerisms... Check Luthor in Superman TAS, for instance, he´s a cold and calculated villain, he never goes jumpy like that, THAT´S a menacing Lex Luthor.
 
the "WROOOOOOONG!!!" ling then kicking into music and kicking in with superman speed flying by.... ****ing made my heart beat so fast, it was amazing..... this movie is the movie of the year...... BATMAN BEGINS was last year and now SUPERMAN RETURNS will be this year...... DC will be having the greatest time of their lives with two of their top comic icon taking in the best movie of the year award....

imo of coarse lol


ahhhhh i am ****ing excited...... woot!
 
I liked it brings a little crazy to Lex. I would be crazy too after getting out of jail.
