Batman VS Superman has just been delayed for 10 months and will now be coming out in 2016 rather than 2015. When Ben Affleck was cast as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman people took to the internet to complain. I don’t know how people will react to this current casting news as it is very fresh.
Jesse Eisenberg star of The Social Network has been cast as the main villain Lex Luthor. Now I was very surprised by this as everyone was saying that Bryan Cranston, Mark Strong and Joaquin Phoenix would be cast in the role. I understand that they wanted someone younger for the role as they aimed to have him the same age as Superman but I don’t think that Eisenberg has the presence to stand up against Cavill. I thought an older actor would have been more suited to the role.
Bruce Wayne’s Butler has also been cast. Alfred will be played by Jeremy Irons which I think is a great choice. I think he is a great actor and in some ways the role seems to small for him but I reckon he can pull off the same sympathy and conscious of Alfred that we saw from Michael Caine.
We are likely to keep on getting more rumors as well as casting updates over the next few months so watch this space.
What do you think of the casting? Who would you rather see play these roles? Please comment and thanks for reading.
