I hope this portrayal of Lex is one for the ages since it's a bummer we're not getting new villains like Brainiac, metallo or parasite.

@MCUKnight11 - I think there is a chance to create the definitive film version. I haven’t been a huge fan of any of the versions from the movies. Best versions are still Smallville and Tim-verse (and comics of course).
TheVisionary25 - 2/22/2024, 7:46 PM
@MCUKnight11 - yeah

The Engineer (if she is the villian like the trades reported) could be the physical threat while Lex is the mastermind.
TheLight - 2/22/2024, 7:48 PM
@mountainman - "Best versions are still Smallville and Tim-verse (and comics of course)"

Amen to that. With Hoult I think we are going to get a great Lex that embodies all of those fantastic mannerisms.

@TheVisionary25 - I hadn’t heard that, but I wonder if there’ll be taking influence from the Luthor graphic novel where he has an android under his control to battle Superman. Switch out the android for the Engineer and that’s the plot.

@MCUKnight11 - could you imagine a version of Lex Luthor that was on par with Ledgers Joker?





lazlodaytona - 2/23/2024, 12:29 AM
@MCUKnight11 - I don't know .... why would Guy Gardner and Hawkgirl, plus metimorpho and others be in the film if the only threat was Lex?
lazlodaytona - 2/23/2024, 12:42 AM
@KennKathleen - I'm cool with your suggestion except it'll be cold day in hell before WB/DCU let's The Rock anywhere near a comic property....

On top of that, I don't get why everyone wants Brainiac in the very first film of the DCU. He's a higher-level threat like Darkseid. Brainiac needs to be slowly hinted at across several films/shows and then be the reason the JL comes together in the first Justice League film. Parasite, Metallo, and Bizzaro are all fine. But make us wait for an epic battle against Brainiac.
bkmeijer1 - 2/23/2024, 2:13 AM
@MCUKnight11 - Metallo and Parasite would really fit this. Never knew much about the villains, but Man of Tomorrow and My Adventures With Superman sold me on them
supermanrex - 2/23/2024, 9:27 AM
@lazlodaytona - you have a really narrow view on how to use characters.
KennKathleen - 2/23/2024, 10:59 AM
@lazlodaytona - I'm in no hurry for Brainaic either. I also think he should be a "down the road" nemesis.

...I do like the idea of a humbled real life Rock, coming back to portray the comic version of what he had seemingly become in Hollywood. It has a poetic twist to it.
lazlodaytona - 2/24/2024, 1:51 AM
@supermanrex - thanks for expressing your opinion on my opinions
grif - 2/22/2024, 7:38 PM
why is otis in this and why is he black?
TrentCrimm - 2/22/2024, 8:13 PM
@grif -

Why not, and who cares?
grif - 2/22/2024, 8:20 PM
@TrentCrimm - you want to call me a racist you can do better
Batmangina - 2/22/2024, 8:37 PM
@TrentCrimm - Because Otis was goofy AF useless character and was white.

If you want to replace a useless goofy AF character with a black guy and make him equally useless and goofy, congrats on your inclusivity.

Now go get your shinebox.
OriginalGusto1 - 2/22/2024, 9:04 PM
Oh Snap!!!!!!!
OmegaBlack13 - 2/22/2024, 9:30 PM
@Batmangina - Should black people only play competent characters?
lazlodaytona - 2/23/2024, 12:32 AM
@grif - Hey! I met Otis at the Superman Celebration years ago. A very good human being and so generous of his time.
TheVandalore - 2/23/2024, 12:54 AM
@grif - equality is about every person being up for every role... Not just the good ones.
TheVandalore - 2/23/2024, 12:57 AM
@grif - as for why is he in this, that's super simple. The writers wrote it that way. Otis isn't usually a dramatic staple so imma guess Otis is here for some element of humor.

Are your clearly not racist questions sufficiently answered?
TrentCrimm - 2/23/2024, 5:12 AM
@grif -

Its not really worth the effort to be honest, you've been around this site for a long time, everyone knows you by now.
TrentCrimm - 2/23/2024, 5:26 AM
@Batmangina -

The irony in a racist talking down to someone else. This site really does become more pleasant the more people like you and Grif I block. Take care.
Batmangina - 2/23/2024, 7:21 AM
@OmegaBlack13 - Yes and Otis was crucial AF to the Superman Mythos. Are you high?
Batmangina - 2/23/2024, 7:23 AM
@TrentCrimm - The softest generation has spoken.
Matador - 2/23/2024, 9:14 AM
@Batmangina - Well in there defense they can't even decide on basic gender let alone make critical decisions that affect others.
grif - 2/23/2024, 10:03 AM
@lazlodaytona - ned seemed like a nice guy
LiteraryJoe - 2/22/2024, 7:39 PM
Incredible. Glad I got out of bed for this one.

I am genuinely excited for this movie but not in the way I was for the first iron man to come out. It excites me as a movie but not as a franchise starter. Hoping to be surprised.
lazlodaytona - 2/23/2024, 12:34 AM
@LiteraryJoe - well, since Creature Commandos is the launching point then maybe after that you'd get more excited.
LiteraryJoe - 2/23/2024, 11:01 AM
@lazlodaytona - Is it major enough to be the launching point for the general audience or just the narrative nerd launching point for the universe?
GhostDog - 2/22/2024, 7:42 PM
They got the brotha playing the bumbling fool. Damn.
harryba11zack - 2/22/2024, 7:45 PM
@GhostDog - you forget the brotha playing mr terrific?
GhostDog - 2/22/2024, 7:48 PM
@harryba11zack - one genius, one fool

harryba11zack - 2/22/2024, 7:43 PM
The most interesting thing about this film for me is the green lantern, hope he has the ginger bowl cut
TheLight - 2/22/2024, 7:46 PM
@harryba11zack - More likely this,
