October 5, 2015: Jesse Eisenberg Says His Lex Luthor is a "Real Scary Person"Print

Lex Luthor In a new interview published by Vulture, Jesse Eisenberg speaks about playing Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", how he read comic books for research, and the comparison between his Lex Luthor and Gene Hackman's...

    For his newest role as Lex Luthor in next year's Batman v. Superman, he read comic books to prepare, but hadn't read them much beforehand, something he thinks was probably for the best or he might have become the "obsequious comic book fan" who was "too excited to stop smiling" while filming. Nonetheless he was happy to have a lot of material to work with.

    "There is this trove of stuff about this guy. A lot of it's repetitive, like he always winds up on the roof of his building giving some faux benevolent talk about how he's going to change the city," he explained. "It's fun to take that campy cartoony stuff and try to put it into a real person and try to reconcile the two."

    Eisenberg also insisted his Luthor would be very different from Gene Hackman's classic portrayal in the Christopher Reeve films, noting that "this movie is so different ... it has real psychological underpinnings, and this movie character feels like a real scary person."

October 5, 2015: Fortune Article on Lex LuthorPrint

Lex Luthor An interesting article has been published at Fortune.com, titled "Lex Luthor Jr.: Not Just His Father's LexCorp".

It's unclear if this is an early piece of viral marketing for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" or not, but the article, which links to a new LexCorp Twitter account, features an indepth examination of Lex Luthor's background, the fact that he's the 31-year-old son of Alexander Joseph Luthor, and delves in to how LexCorp became such a major industry power player.

    Alexander Joseph Luthor Jr. is a 31-year-old wunderkind who transformed an aging petrochemical and heavy machinery dinosaur into a tech darling of the Fortune 500 in what some call a superhuman feat.

    This jeans-wearing genius is equally at ease rappelling the climbing wall in his employee "inspiration station" and coding in "the crucible": the cutting-edge R & D lab where the baby-faced billionaire verbally extemporizes computer code like Miles Davis improvising a trumpet solo.

October 5, 2015: Rachel Platten's "Fight Song" Featured in New "Supergirl" VideoPrint

Supergirl A new music video has been released, featuring the song "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten and footage from the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series.

    "I wrote 'Fight Song' during a really dark point in my life and career," said Rachel Platten. "After so much rejection, I began to doubt myself and feared that it was too late to make it in the industry. 'Fight Song' literally became my own anthem of empowerment when I needed it most. When I first watched 'Supergirl,' I fell in love with Kara. She perfectly embodies the message of 'Fight Song.' She's such a strong, courageous woman and I'm seriously so honored to have my song soundtrack her journey. You rock, Supergirl!"

    Since its debut in early 2015, "Fight Song" has been certified Double Platinum with over 2 million singles sold to date in the U.S., more than 70 million streams and more than 60 million video views around the globe. The single reached #1 at AC radio; "Fight Song" has also reached #1 at Adult Pop radio, where it remained for four consecutive weeks, and landed in the Top 10 at Pop radio. In all, the single has been listened to by 1.4 billion in cumulative radio audience.

    How do ANY of the attacking villains make sense this issue? Of the huge array of villains in Superman's rogues we get a bizarre mishmash of foes that have no motive for doing so, nor are they really some of Superman's deadliest foes. The only one in a narrative concept that made sense was Dylan, and even he is motivated by a story I would rather have seen than be a throw away line for a story that never happened.

    Perry sacking Clark makes no sense - with a failing paper why would you jettison your goose and his golden egg? Ridiculous. Whether Perry felt betrayed or duped or whatever else - the journalist in him would have not allowed himself to throw Clark out.
