Exclusive: What will Lex Luthor be wearing in Batman V Superman?

05.18.2015

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice  Banner

Over the weekend we got wind of a possible key villain (Doomsday) that may be appearing in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and a reiteration of who the MAIN villain is; Lex Luthor (as played by Jesse Eisenberg). There's been very little said of Lex's portrayal in the upcoming DCU film, with director Zack Snyder summing up the most about how he'll be portrayed thus far when he shared his first look at Eisenberg as Lex, saying:

"He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure. Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course. Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there."

With the main conflict being between Bats and Supes initially, the true evil will of course reveal itself and many have wondered if we'll get a man of "talk" or a man of "action" in this new version of Luthor. Well, it appears we'll be getting both. According to a very trusted and reliable source, not only will Lex be the main villain, but he will also get in on the action...and will do so wearing his trademark green/purple WARSUIT! That's right, we will finally be seeing Lex don the armor he's worn for decades in the comics and various animated series/films. How will it look exactly? Our source says it will be very much like the many variations we've seen in the past and will obviously fit the style and look of the film (and DCCU films in general). Lex will don the suit for at least part of the film, but it's unclear if it's just in the finale. Either way, he'll be rockin' the suit and that more than likely means a throwdown with Supes (although we can't outright confirm that).

There have been many theories about how he gets the suit, one of them being that he gathers Kryptonian technology recovered from the Metropolis battle in MAN OF STEEL, possibly including the corpse of Zod, etc. We can't confirm any of the details or speculation on HOW he gets (or simply builds) the suit, only that he WILL wear it. Beyond that, we can also corroborate the reports that Lex isn't the only villain. Whether or not that's Doomsday or someone else, we can't confirm, but rest assured that when Batman and Superman are done beating the shit out of each other they'll have a few baddies to contend with. Good thing the good guys will have some back-up, eh?

So, there you go. Another piece of the closely guarded BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE puzzle is in place. What I dig about this is that it elevates Lex to his full potential, as he's been portrayed onscreen thus far as menacing, but also as a bit of a behind the scenes kind of guy and one that avoids the dirty work. He's been all suit-and-tie for the most part, so it'll be nice to see Lex unleashed as we've seen him in every other medium BUT film. As per the usual with scoops, feel free to take this as rumor until officially confirmed (or seen).

What do you think? Are you ready to see Lex in action or do you prefer the tactical, behind-the-scenes version?

As long as they don't do the real estate Luthor, I'm happy. I wonder about the Doomsday rumour, he does sound like someone that would make the trinity join

Hopefully we'll get a Lex Luthor that really portrays something of his comicbook counterpart.
Smartest guy in the world (or close), has genuine reasons for hating Superman - not some vendetta from his past or money-grabbing scheme but because he sees Superman as an invading element that has no right to impose morality on humanity - Luthor genuinely believes that by challenging Superman he's defending humanity, or at least humanity's right to find it's own way, make its own mistakes and if

I think Eisenberg could portray this quite well, given the chance. As for a power suit - I guess that's down to whether they feel the need to have Luthor duke it out with anyone in this movie - Luthor's arrogant and convinced of his own superiority and resourcefulness, so if he thinks he can create a suit to best Superman and prove himself right, he'll do it.

Hmm, they probably show him testing or making his Mech Suit but this movie is about Superman Vs. Batman, not about Lex Luthor. But if there's a Mech Suit, that should pave a way for a bigger role for Luthor in future movies.

That's awesome news and should be a hell of a battle between the two, but I'm still disappointed over the casting of Eisenberg for Luthor. The guy has no range for a character like this, and I feel as if DC could have done a much better job in casting the iconic character and villain.

This movie sound dumber by the second. From the nearly 100% CGI teaser (those CGI Batman shots looked horrible) to this, BvS seems more cartoon than film.

Never was a big reader of the comics but please, no man in a suit be it Batman or Lex is going to beat Superman, a man that could drop a city on your head or fry you with heat vision from a mile away. Not going to happen. And at what point in this film does Robin, Superboy, Supergirl, and Superdog show up.

Well then maybe you should read the comics because then you will come to realize that Superman is not as strong as the Saturday cartoons portrayed him to be (moving the earth with his finger??). He has many weaknesses. The Hulk in my opinion is stronger and has no real weaknesses (except for Betty and now ScarJo) , and got beat by a man called Tony Stark in a shiny suit.

That armoured suit Batman is wearing in the trailer, he uses that suit to battle Superman. Batman is highly intelligent and has contingency plans for all DC hero's in case that go rogue. Superman may be powerful but he also holds back even when fighting powerful villains. It's the "boy scout" in him.

I'm still weary about the substance of the film, but Snyder has style in spades, Lex in his suit should make for one amazing action scene. I just hope it is in fact purple and green. I know that's a pretty goofy color combo for live action armor, and MoS was terrified of venturing outside of a dull color pallet (or lack thereof ) but I'd be a lot more down with the Eisenberg version of Lex if I saw him in big bulky green and purple armor!

Probably a refurbished Kryptonian armor that Zod wore, with new paintjob?
