Batman vs Superman cast: Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred

Batman vs Superman cast: Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred

It would appear that the cast of Batman vs Superman is about to get a whole lot younger. In an announcement that suggests this push for the DC Comics-led universe of superheroes will be changing feet on a whole new level, the actor best known for his role as Mark Zuckerberg in the 2010 movie The Social Network will be inserted into the role of Lex Luthor. Better known as a bald man (though not always bald in the comic books, mind you), Luthor's name has already appeared in the first Superman movie in this universe.

Here we're seeing the technology called Gamestream - a relatively new technology - working with NVIDIA GRID in a way we've never seen before.

Batman Arkham Origins NVIDIA graphics optimizations and gameplay eyes-on

Ben Mattes Senior Producer from WB Games spoke up on the inner bits of Batman: Arkham Origins this week at NVIDIA's Montreal gaming event. Running down the details of the plotline first, Batman Arkham Origins was described as an exercise in Batman history, taking place in the second year of Batman's career - decidedly NOT the first year, as these events are covered in the comic book series "Year One."
