The sequel to the Superman reboot is not only not a Superman-focused movie but Superman doesn’t even get top billing. The Man of Steel sequel is now officially known as “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
Man of Steel 2 (AKA Batman vs. Superman) director Zack Snyder didn’t go through the usual PR channels for a big reveal of the upcoming DC Comics epic. Snyder took to his Twitter account to show off the first official image of Ben Affleck as Batman along with his new Batmobile.
After hearing the news that The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor, I think that DC Comics fans were in a state of collective shock. Considering that Bryan Cranston was interested in the role and would have been absolutely perfect, fans were absolutely flabbergasted that Jesse Eisenberg will get the leading antagonist role for Man of Steel 2, AKA Batman vs. Superman.
