Jesse Eisenberg has been cast as arch-nemesis to Superman, Lex Luthor, in the new Batman vs. Superman movie, while Jeremy Irons will play Batman’s faithful manservant Alfred. This is shaping up to be an interesting movie to say the least. Though I’m never particularly invested in a Superman flick, I will definitely have to check this one out in hopes that it will have even an ounce of The Dark Knight Returns coolness in it. *Fingers crossed*
On the other hand, I’m SOOOOOOO looking forward to X-Men: Days of Future Past. I really hope that they have weaved a descent, albeit not canonically correct in the slightest, storyline together with the hodge-podge of X-Men movies they’ve had in the past. It really just needs to avoid half-baked X-Men: Last Stand character craziness, and everything will be alright. I really enjoyed X-Men: First Class, so I think it’s going to be smooth sailing.
Also, Wintersoldier! Yay! I feel the same way about Cap as I do about Superman, but given Marvel’s track record, I’m willing to go out on a limb here and say that this one will be entertaining as well.
Only time will tell!
