    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.

    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.

    that's just cuz he's not wearing a wig like this.

    [​IMG]:( VS [​IMG] :) :up:

    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.

    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.
