March 25, 2015: First Photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex LuthorPrint

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor Entertainment Weekly has released our first look at Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor for the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". The movie's release is just a year away and fans have been waiting eagerly for every bit of info to be released. This photo should allay some of the concerns people have had about what the well-known super-villain will look like.

Zack Snyder had this to say about his version of the balding megalomaniac: "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," says Snyder. "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."

March 25, 2015: "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" - One Year Away!Print

Dawn of Justice On this day next year "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will open in movie theatres.

While news on the upcoming film has been fairly quiet in recent weeks, there are new rumors and speculation about when and where the first trailer for "Batman v Superman" will be seen.

Recent speculation indicates that WonderCon Anaheim may be the time and place, while others think that Warner Bros. will wait for the bigger San Diego Comic Con for the venue.

WonderCon Anaheim takes place across April 3-5, and Warner Bros. has scheduled a one hour presentation for Saturday, April 4 at 12.30pm that could be used for this very purpose.

San Diego Comic Con doesn't take place until July 9-12.

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Though a touching story, it really was a dull ending to Men of Tomorrow. It was brilliantly written, just a bit out of place as an ending. In the grand scheme though it has gone a long way to bringing Clark Kent to life. Since the New 52 began in 2011, Clark Kent hasn't really existed until the Greg Pak Smallville stories. The characterizations and relationships were spot on if only a bit vague from Perry and Steve. I like that Jimmy has been given a meatier role and is drawn into the mix more, especially as Lois has been essentially written out of the series as 'living scenery'. The mere fact that the Planeteers are getting back into Superman stories is a joy to see. I am still dubious as to how the solar flare will be used in the future but if we get more 'heart' stories than 'villain of the week' then this is really a turning point.

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    There's nothing wrong with concluding a story arc. However, the ending of this one feels a bit rushed so DC can move on with "Convergence". I'm not saying that this wasn't a good book. The rating I gave it should tell how much I liked it. Yet, I got the sensation the creative was trying to put two issue or an annual into twenty-two pages.

    I'm really happy with how Kara and Mike's relationship developed in this series. I was afraid he'd be killed or some other cliched plot device would be used on one of my favorite supporting characters. I'm glad to see that the tired routes weren't taken regarding Mike.
