DC’s Extended Universe path is somewhat confusing for now; after Zack Snyder’s tapes like Man of Steel – 55%, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – 27% and Zack Snyder’s Justice League – 82%, Warner Bros. has made the decision to focus on other characters before thinking about everything the director raised. Of course, that relationship is already broken and could hardly be resumed, but would it be so easy to get rid of all the silver?

For now your attention is on Matt Reeves’ The Batman, Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, as separate productions of the previous stories, but still have characters involved in them who cannot simply ignore the events of The Justice League like Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller’s Flash or Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. For now there is no information on a third Amazon princess movie, but it is almost certain that there will be. While Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is currently shooting.
Miller, meanwhile, is in the middle of filming The Flash by Andy Muschietti, where they managed to recover Ben Affleck’s Batman for a special participation after the actor had already said goodbye to the character. This little detail is what keeps hopes in light of the possible return of other characters. A couple of months ago Snyder spoke about his plans for a second and third installment of Justice League – 41%, where Lex Luthor would have a fundamental place.
According to the filmmaker’s words, the most important enemy for Superman would join Darkseid, but seeing that his objective was to completely destroy humanity, the millionaire would seek to redeem himself and face Darkseid himself. Now it is Jesse Eisenberg who speaks about it in the middle of an interview for Comic Book Movie, where he pointed out that it would be great for him to repeat any character, but in this case the final decision does not depend on him.

I’m probably the last person to know the answer to that question because I don’t know how they make those decisions. You know, my experience is in the theater, where you do a play 200 times and you feel like you’re just up for the last performance. I would love to play any character again. Once a movie is over, actors usually look at each other and say, ‘Oh, now I finally know what I’m doing and I understand. [cuál era] my purpose’. In my experience, actors like to play roles again, but that one in particular is not up to me.
To tell the truth, Eisenberg’s character was not the best received by the audience, especially due to the actor’s previous performances as in Zombieland: Shot of Grace – 84%, Social Network – 96% or De Roma Con Amor – 43%, where their characters were quite similar. But after Snyder’s statements, where he also added that Luthor would also have the opportunity to create the League of Injustice, the perspective of many fans changed.

On the other hand, going back to Jesse’s Lex Luthor would mean an opportunity to bring Superman back from the Snyderverse under the portrayal of Henry Cavill. For now they are nothing more than assumptions, but if Affleck was able to wear the Batman suit again, anything is possible now.
