Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor

In some truly baffling stunt casting, Variety reports that Jesse Eisenberg, of The Social Network fame, has been cast Lex Luthor in the Batman/Superman movie, and Jeremy Irons is Alfred. Lex is the big news though, because apparently they've decided to "modernize" the character by turning him into some kind of internet genius or something. I say that because when you cast Jesse Eisenberg of all people as a supervillain, clearly what you're going for is a more evil version of his Mark Zuckerberg. As much as I like him, that is what we're going to be getting here. Frankly, every new piece of news about this movie makes it sound worse, but maybe this could all turn out to be kind of gloriously entertaining in a "so bad it's good" kind of way?
