"And now God bends to my will."
So I watched Batman v Superman last week and fell in love with Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor – I know it's divisive, but I personally really loved this sort of... modern interpretation? He was brilliant and unsettling and delightful to watch (and brought some much needed energy and contrast to the movie I think ). Also that pretentious trolling and need to be the smartest/most powerful guy in the room. ALSO THAT MUSIC THEME. Basically, I'm the most predictable person in the world and consistently have a thing for nerd villains with father issues and fabulous hair (at least for a while...), what can you do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
ANYWAY because of all the mythological/theological themes wrapped up in this movie and his issues/storyline in particular, I went a bit overboard with the symbolism in here... (Kryptonite 'crown of thorns' and I tried combining winged shapes with the style of curved lines in the Kryptonian ship, but honestly idk what I'm doing)
I completely agree with you, I've never been a huge fan of Batman or Superman but absolutely loved Lex Luthor in this movie, even if he wasn't much like the original. Jesse Eisenberg portrayed him so perfectly, I really hope DC brings a lot more of him in to their movies
But I do think we can all agree Affleck's Batman was brutal and badass!
And on the mythological themes, there was a painting in the movie of St. Micheal defeating Satan
St. Micheal with red and blue robes...hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......
I seriously was filled with joy when I saw this and it was drawn by you! <3
Nerd villains, hmmm. I was going to wonder how much fun Luthor would have with Loki but more likely he'd try to turn Loki into his ottoman.
Haha, I wonder what would happen if he and Loki met too - Loki is much more an agent of chaos so it would be interesting to see him get manipulated, if Lex succeeds there!
(And yeah, I totally agree with everything you said here. AND THAT MUSIC THEME, it was epic and one of the best new character themes I've heard in a while )
