It would be an exaggeration to say that everyone is excited for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The lukewarm reaction to Man of Steel, the lack of Christopher Nolan's involvement, and the casting of Ben Affleck have all contributed to make fans wary of the project. One decision that has been well-received, however, is the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor. Despite his on-screen image as a shy, likable kid, many people feel that the young actor has the chops to pull it off. Now, it seems like that trust may be vindicated.
