"Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released in less than three months. Avid fans of the superheroes remain torn whether they would support Batman or Superman. Below is a roundup of the spoilers and reports on the upcoming movie, set to be released on March 25 this year under Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.
The new Lex Luthor of the film will have hair, LA Times reported. Played by Jesse Eisenberg, fans are advised to throw everything they know of Luthor for this movie, starting with the fact that Luthor is bald and fashionably challenged. Instead, the millennial Luthor will have hair and wearing regular clothes. The actor has nothing against being so far away from how his character has been traditionally portrayed, though. "When you're doing a movie like this and playing a character that's already been played, the further away it is from those previous incarnations the better," Eisenberg said. "Because chances are, especially with a guy like Gene Hackman or Kevin Spacey, you're not going to get favorably compared."
He also joked of why his character has hair now...and longer than the average man's hair too. "Literally, there would be one of those Wile E. Coyote things where the piano drops from the sky randomly on his head. That's what will happen to me."
The actor however seriously stated that fans should just wait for the movie to know the reason behind the hair. He promised fans that it would be worth the wait. "When you see the movie, you'll see. It's the greatest scene that I've ever gotten to take part in - it accounts for the change in hair."
It is highly anticipated that the movie will do well once released, considering who the main superheroes the story revolve in. An alleged advanced screening on Dec. 29 of 2015 had some fans screaming that the movie is indeed going to be good.
According to Heroic Hollywood, a Reddit user named ViolatingNDA, who claims to have attended a screening shown on December 29,2015, held in Los Angeles, the movie will go down as the greatest comic book film since The Dark Knight."
ViolatingNDA praised heavily Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg's performances. The user said they were considered the "standout" of the film. He also said Eisenberg stole every scene he was in and then left the viewers wanting so much more. Affleck also portrayed a frightening version of Batman that could make him look like a villain to some viewers.
Apparently, he is not alone in his views. According to the Reddit user, up to 30 people were with him on that advanced screening and everyone has positive things to say. The movie ran for 115 minutes.
Probably worried that many will not even believe he experienced an advanced screening of the movie, ViolatingNDA posted a screenshot of his confirmation to attend a "mystery screening" from WB on the Reddit Thread. HH's Umberto Gonzalez also tweeted that the screening did take place and was shown. This tweet however has long been taken down.
