Yes, Lex Luthor Will (Probably) Return in JUSTICE LEAGUE

Image
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice served as an origin story for Lex Luthor in the DC Extended Universe. So, despite the polarizing reception to the character, expect to see plenty more of him going forward. And now, actor Jesse Eisenberg suggests that we'll be seeing his Lex again very soon.

At MCM London Comic-Con (via Digital Spy), Eisenberg said that he will likely reprise his role as Lex Luthor in Justice League, which began production last month. He's just waiting on that confirmation call. "They just started filming Justice League, so I'm kind of like waiting for my crack at it. I don't know what I'm allowed to say, because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off. But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who's in it. You know, it's a really talented group of people."

As for how he wants to develop the Lex character in future DC films, Eisenberg…

Jeremy Irons Calls BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE "Overstuffed" and "Very Muddled"

Image
Film critics have been very negative in their reviews of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Complaints range from the film's pacing to editing to tone to...well, just about everything. Actors from the movie, such as Henry Cavill and Ray Fisher, have defended the film despite the reviews. However, it looks like one cast member agrees with the critics.

Speaking with Daily Mail, Alfred Pennyworth actor Jeremy Irons says that Batman v Superman was "deservedly" torn apart by critics. "I mean it took £800 million, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed… It was very muddled."

While Irons wasn't too big on Batman v Superman, he is still on board with future DC films. He will reprise his Alfred role in 2017's Justice League, and he has this to say about how the next movie will be different. "I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear." This goes along with a previous report on Ju…

Review: ARROW Season Four

Image
[Warning: The Following Contains SPOILERSFrom Season 4 of Arrow.]
Back in 2012, Arrow premiered on The CW with a surprisingly solid first season. It followed that up with an excellent second season, making the show a must-see amongst DC fans. However, the third season was considered a huge disappointment by most, with many criticizing the decision to pursue the Oliver Queen/Felicity Smoak relationship. It doesn't help that it aired the same time as The Flash's debut season, which was acclaimed for its comic book faithfulness and engaging storytelling.

This week, The CW finished airing the fourth season of Arrow. Is it a return to glory for the godfather of the DC-TV Multiverse, or does it continue to descend to new depths of mediocrity?

Overall, I would put Arrow season four on the same level as season three. Both seasons have some great episodes, consisting of intensity, strong action sequences. However, there are also some mediocre episodes, and when it comes to storytelling…
