We’re slowly learning more about Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. A fake business article about LexCorp revealed he’s Lex Luthor, Jr., the son of an East German émigré and a collector of meteorite crystals (Kryptonite is implied). The article hints at why Luthor distrusts Superman (his father “came from a country where the government, in the guise of protector, had absolute control over the citizens”). Then Eisenberg himself talked about how condescending towards Bruce Wayne his character is. Now a synopsis posted by a movie theater chain has revealed a bit more about Luthor’s plotline.
Odeon Cinemas, a theater chain in the UK, updated their site with a revealing official synopsis:
At long last, see Batman and Superman square off against each other in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, an epic superhero showdown which will change both their lives forever.
Clark Kent doesn’t trust Gotham’s mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn’t trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends.
