After the internet brought us rumours of Doomsday appearing in Zack Snyder’s next DC movie (here) over the weekend, today we have more villain news.

Rumours are circulating that Jesse Eisenberg will be suiting up in Lex Luthor’s Kryptonite-powered exoskeleton (above) for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Originally designed by George Perez in the 1980s, the Iron Man-style super suit has been a feature of comics and animated TV series since. It seems that Luthor might not be content to stand back and watch Batman bust out his Hulkbuster gear to take on the Man of Steel after all.

Further info on Luthor’s threads as and when we get it, but suffice to say this could be a big thing. Wheels are in motion; just a shame there has to be a 10-month wait…

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
