More on what Lex Luthor will be like in Batman V Superman

June 19th, 2014 by Marc Comments

We had the news yesterday that Lex wouldn’t be bald – at least at the start – in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. And now we may have some details on the character of Metropolis’ greatest mind. claims they have someone on the film who was close to the filming going on in Detroit this week: “You are going to hate this guy. You are going to root for him to be punched by Supes when he weasels his way out of legal trouble. He is cocky and confident because he is THAT good at what he does. He’s a billionaire who knows he is more powerful than the Senator and Congressman visiting because he’s a billionaire. This is a high tech mega billion company with a shiny veneer. It’s Apple/Google, colorful and consumer friendly public image but serious potential for Lex’s deviousness.”

An IMDB user has claimed: “Lex has a super modern-hip Facebook/Google style office with a basketball court, pinball tables, etc. Everyone looks ultra douchey and has bowties and blazers, etc. Lex is introduced in which he takes a basketball shot, and in the same motion, after draining the shot, turns around and shakes a senator’s hand, who is there to greet him. He looks like Kurt Cobain, and is a complete douche.”

We’re mildly concerned at the cheesy intro of the character, but this is all still just rumour…

Now, for a really interesting piece of possible casting news, are claiming that The Wolverine actress Tao Okamoto (below) will play Lex’s henchwoman/assistant/assassin Mercy… we do like this idea as Mercy has always been one of favourites here at FTN.

But what do you guys think about Lex and do you think the lady below could be Luthor’s most trusted assistant?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
