Superman/Batman Film

Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot will have some interesting company in the sequel to Man of Steel that brings together Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

Metropolis mogul Lex Luthor will be played by Jesse Eisenberg, who starred in comedies Adventureland and Zombieland and portrayed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network. So Superman’s eternal foe is skewing younger.

Batman’s stalwart butler Alfred Pennyworth, so masterfully realized recently by Michael Caine, will this time be portrayed by Jeremy Irons.
