'Justice League' Members, Plot & Spoilers: Lex Luthor Prison Break Confirmed
“Justice League Part One” is not due until November 17, 2017 but this early, one of the villains the band of superheroes will be facing may be the same one that brought havoc on “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” – “Lex Luthor” (Jesse Eisenberg).
Luthor was last seen placed behind bars following the events that transpired on “Batman v Superman” and it is likely that he will find a way to bolt prison. Could there be someone helping him out to bring in more chaos?
A deleted scene from the movie could provide an answer to that where Luthor was talking to “someone” which the Collider believes could be Steppenwolf. Steppenwolf is rumored to be another villain appearing on “Justice League” so seeing an alliance between him and Luthor could make a lot of sense.
As most people perhaps know by now, “Batman v Superman” bombed a bit in the box office despite many believing that it wasn’t that bad of a movie. Regardless it will be up to “Justice League” to try and salvage that issue and Eisenberg is looking forward to helping out via CBM.
“I’m kind of in wait. They just started filming Justice League, so I’m kind of like waiting for my crack at it. I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, because I feel like there’s probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off. But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who’s in it. You know, it’s a really talented group of people.”
Jeremy Irons, who played “Alfred” who practically agreed that the storyline was ‘muddled’ and ‘overstuffed’ in an interview with the Daily Mail.
“Deservedly so. I mean it took £800 million, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed… It was very muddled. I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear.”
Hopefully the shortcomings brought about by “Batman v Superman” will be put in check and Eisenberg’s return will hopefully help. While many considered his portrayal as a bat over the top, he does admit that he simply wanted to humanize his character (Lex Luthor) which was technically a good thing.
While his intentions were good, he may want to tone it a bit in a manner that doesn’t go beyond how comic book fans know “Superman’s” archrival.
“Justice League Part One” is set to be released on November 17, 2017 with the second part following on June 14, 2019.
