Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor? Nevermind.

I actually like that casting choice. Kevin Spacey was a terrible LL.

I really enjoyed Rush. It's a flick about two Formula 1 drivers back in the 1970s. It was written and directed by Ron Howard. Very high rotten tomatoes rating.

I never saw Superman Returns, so I'm not sure how Spacey was. I know that Eisenberg did a good job of pulling off forceful/domineering in The Social Network. I just don't know that he as whatever that intangible quality is that makes someone a good supervillain. Hackman wasn't exactly menacing in the original Superman movies, but he worked as LL.

He just seems like he'd play Luthor well. Calm and calculated externally, but menacing and temperamental when necessary.

Watched Now You See Me the other day. Thoroughly average, but now I'm not as sure as I was that there's no way Eisenberg can pull of LL. He does the slimy asshole thing pretty well.

Got an email from Amazon telling me that a $5 credit I had on Instant Video that I didn't know I had was about to expire. Used it on Gravity. I liked it more than I thought I would.
