Perhaps the biggest casting bombshell of the new year has dropped with word that Warner Bros has cast Jesse Eisenberg to play Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie. The film won’t come out until May 6, 2016, but the Oscar nominated actor will be stepping into a role previously filled by Gene Hackman and Kevin Spacey.

Twitter went nuts when the announcement was made, with some agreeing with the casting while others could help but laugh while tweeting their disgust of the choice. Nevertheless, Twitter went wild and the fanboys reacted almost immediately to the news.

    I like it. Jessie does a great controlled evil. He will be good and change a lot of minds.
