It seems like Justice League must be a ways off; we just got Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a couple months ago. But the DC Cinematic Universe is kicking into high gear, with multiple movies coming out from now until climate change renders our planet uninhabitable. After Suicide Squad later this summer, and Wonder Woman next June, Justice League arrives in November of 2017. It’s just 18 months a way at this point.

Jesse Eisenberg’s wildly eccentric portrayal of Lex Luthor was certainly one of the more divisive elements of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but whether you loved or hated his take on the iconic Superman villain, you have to admit that the movie was never boring when he was on screen. And it looks like he’s not going anywhere anytime soon, as Eisenberg has confirmed that Lex Luthor will appear in Justice League — or at least Part One, anyway.

See enough Woody Allen movies and you realize he only has like eight different stories and themes and he just mixes and matches them. Based on the trailer for his latest movie, Café Society, it appears that his latest effort (his tenth movie in the last ten years and 20th movie in 20 years) combines the standard issue Allen-esque nebbish (played this time by Jesse Eisenberg) who falls for a woman way out of his league (Kristen Stewart) with his deep nostalgia for the past (in this case Hollywood of the 1930s) in a story that takes a comic look at the futility of life. It ain’t the most original premise for Woody, but when make 20 movies in 20 years, how many original premises can there be?

This goes without saying at this point, but spoilers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to follow — so if you haven’t had a chance to see Zack Snyder’s new blockbuster just yet (it’s only Friday, after all), feel free to turn back now. That said, Snyder reveals the very different role Jesse Eisenberg almost had, along with some insight into a key scene that takes place early in the film.

‘Batman v Superman’ Review: Titans Clash (Eventually, After Like Two Hours)

Zack Snyder makes superhero movies, but his characters don’t act very heroic. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice features all the other trappings of the superhero genre: Capes, gadgets, outlandish muscles, punching stuff. But the two stars aren’t noble or chivalrous; they’re violent, aggressive, and angry — mostly at each other instead of the bad guys. In Snyder’s formulation, protecting the world from evil isn’t a gift or a calling; it’s a burden. And that feeling is reflected in the movie itself, a burdensome 150- minute slog about two men fighting over who is in the right when both are very clearly in the wrong.
