"It's probably a very contemporary portrayal because there's some kind of psychological reality to it. I think that's a very contemporary idea," he says now. "We can go to see a movie, even one as theatrical as a superhero movie and there's some kind of psychological reality to even the villainous characters."
He's not very chatty about surface aspects of the character, like his long hair in the "Batman v. Superman" trailer (as opposed to the stark bald character photo of Luthor previously released). Are people asking him about that? "Not yet, you're the first of the day, so maybe this is the ominous cloud of things to come," he quips.
"Supergirl" premieres Monday, October 26 at 8:30pm ET on CBS, before moving into its regular 8.00pm Monday time slot.
The "LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom" clip below features Lex Luthor (voiced by John DiMaggio) hatching the first part of his diabolical plan - to create a villains version of the Justice League. To do so, Luthor, along with guest judges Black Manta (Kevin Michael Richardson) & Sinestro (Mark Hamill), hosts "tryouts" for the Legion of Doom - with all your favorite DC villains auditioning to join the team.
Crime is on the run as the newly formed Justice League keeps Metropolis safe and this makes evil genius Lex Luthor very unhappy. Together with Black Manta, Sinestro and a gang of ruthless recruits, Lex builds his own league and declares them the Legion of Doom. With this super powered team of terror and a plan to attack the top-secret government site, Area 52, can Lex finally be on the verge of victory? Sound the "Trouble Alert" and get ready for the bricks to fly when Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League face off against the world's greatest Super-Villains! It's the next all-new original movie from LEGO and DC Comics.

Cavill's Superman is the most troubled of any that has yet been seen - a hero forced to hide his light under a bushel, an immortal plagued by survivor's guilt. "He's a complex dude," he agrees. "People think Kryptonite can beat him. No. The only thing that can really beat Superman is Superman. His own noggin messing with him. His own moral choices. When you have that to start with, the storytelling can really delve into something rich."
Jim [Chadwick] sent me this fantastic PDF of all of the designs of the Bombshells, from all different angles with all the detail that had gone into their creation. From there, I sort of retroactively drew stories out of the artwork. There are some places where the backstory was established through costumes and some places where I saw opportunities for future plots just based on these designs. I can't get more specific without getting into spoiler territory, unfortunately. But I promise to talk about it on Twitter once the issues are out!
So which characters are you focusing on?
Batwoman, Wonder Woman and Supergirl will be the main characters in our first wave.
Why those three?
So, this is how our entire series begins. It starts with this sort of grainy film reel and this super cheesy announcer talking about [switches to an old-timey voice] "this innocent family out for a summer stroll!" We've got this well-dressed couple and their little boy heading toward the movie theater. Then we see a gangster with a tommy guy "suddenly out of the shadows!" There's an attempted robbery and then "out of the darkness, from above...who is this mysterious, beautiful Bombshell?!" And Batwoman comes crashing down and prevents the murder of the Waynes.
There is no Batman in this universe. The women came first. No heroine is derivative of her male counterpart. They are the sovereign heroes of this world, and that was the conceit of the entire story. Batwoman is our equivalent.

Hollywood screenwriter and Eisner Award nominee Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN) joins forces with top comics artists including Jock, Francis Manapul and Jae Lee to bring you SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN, a 7-issue miniseries chronicling the life of Clark Kent and his development into the archetypal hero he will eventually become. But these are not the stories of the iconic "Superman" as you know him, but of the soft-spoken, charming, often-funny Kansas farm-boy behind the Man of Steel. With the tone of each issue ranging from heartwarming and simple, to frighteningly gritty and violent, to sexy, sun-kissed and funny, SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN is unlike anything you've seen before.
In this first issue, superstar artist Nick Dragotta (East of West, Fantastic Four) illustrates the story of Jonathan and Martha Kent as they struggle to deal with their 12-year-old son's latest quirk - he's been floating up into the air, sometimes hundreds of feet!
Look for the full list of Superman related comic books coming out in November early next week.
