Warner Bros. has released an "interview" with Lex Luthor over at Wired as part of its BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE viral marketing campaign, and although it doesn't really reveal anything about the upcoming film, the LexCorp CEO does talk a little about the "new superhuman threat" and Batman. Below you'll also find a new look at Jesse Eisenberg as Luthor, as well as a nifty infographic comparing the research and development budgets of several DC Comics businesses

Ron Troupe: You’ve been very vocal about that. About the new superhuman threat.

Lex Luthor: Well I don’t know where you got that term. I think to be a super human, one should begin by being, you know, from this planet.

Troupe: Bad choice of words?

Luthor: We should all be careful when we elevate anyone, human or alien, to “super” status.

Troupe: Because we’re all equal.

Luthor: Well that’s just absurd. No – I’m saying we need to be selective and elevate the right people. The right human people.

Troupe: And what are your thoughts on the Batman? He’s human. Presumably.

Luthor: Well, he is. In fact, I’d say he’s all too human. Any objective analyst will tell you that his brand of justice, vigilantism, is painfully outmoded, designed to be effective in an age when the law carried billy clubs because crime carried knives. The most dangerous guy on the street worked in the shadows because he was cowardly and superstitious. That’s all you needed to play upon in order to disrupt their operations. You want to clean up the streets? Dress up like the boogeyman, switch on a fog machine and lower your voice.

Troupe: When you put it that way, it sounds ridiculous.

Luthor: It didn’t when the Batman first appeared, but that was a long time ago. This is a new world, Ron, and it’s time to get serious.

Luthor went on to name drop A.R.G.U.S, a U.S. government agency from the comics, saying "If she… they… Argus… the government, whatever you want to call it, has a real interest in fighting for the future, they ought to work with those of us who are already on the front lines." What are your thoughts on Lex Luthor's latest interview?

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will drop into theaters on March 25, 2016.
