Most fans and critics alike would agree that Christopher Nolan redefined what a superhero movie could and maybe should be with his epic The Dark Knight trilogy. He also helped bring Man of Steel to the big screen, serving as a writer and producer. While the Superman reboot helped launch Warner Bros. and DC's new Cinematic Universe, don't expect to see him or his brother Jonathan Nolan, who helped penned the screenplays for The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight, back to continue their work on the two-part Justice League movie or its standalone and spinoff movies.
While doing press for Interstellar, which Jonathan co-wrote with his brother, the younger Nolan confirmed that he and Christopher Nolan are done with the big screen world of DC. At least for the moment,
"I love those guys and my brother was involved in Man of Steel with Zack [Snyder] and David [Goyer]. I kind »

Eisenberg plays the villain in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" and his inclusion in 'Squad' would give the film an obvious link back to the greater DC Cinematic Universe which the film doesn't really appear to have on the surface.
There's a problem though, Eisenberg is being lined up to star in the Todd Phillips-directed "Arms And The Dudes" and it's unlikely he'll be able to do both. He's also committed to a certain "Now You See Me" sequel and a potential "Zombieland" sequel which is moving forward again.

David Ayer is hoping to include Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor in his Suicide Squad. Warner Bros. is currently in talks with the actor to bring his Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice character into the upcoming movie about DC villains.
Suicide Squad has garnered a lot of buzz lately, mainly because of the rumors that A-listers Will Smith, Ryan Gosling and Tom Hardy are in talks for roles in the film, as is The Wolf Of Wall Street's Margot Robbie.
The DC movie follows a group of supervillains who are brought together to tackle high-risk black ops missions for the government. The comic was created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru back in 1959. The Suicide Squad team has included countless DC villains among its ranks, including Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn.

When the Spider-Man universe flirted with the idea of a villainous team named the Sinister Six, the movie drew on enemies introduced in the movies. (Electro, the Green Goblin and the Rhino were the core examples.) With DC eyeing a similar Suicide Squad film, you would think it would follow suit. only, General Zod.s "unavailable" (read: dead) and there haven.t been any other major villains in this DC cinematic universe. Except one. And he might increase his role in a major way. Jesse Eisenberg is about to introduce the classic villain Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Lex.s presence was hinted at in Man of Steel, but the character is stepping into the foreground for the battle between the Dark Knight and the Blue Boy Scout. But Deadline now reports that Eisenberg is "in discussions" with Warner Bros. to continue then »

"Suicide Squad" may be the smartest title on the entire slate of DC Comic movies announced recently by Warner Bros. With David Ayer onboard to direct, this is the story of how some of the nastiest bad guys in the DC Universe are pressed into service to do something for the government. It can play rougher than other DC movies and it would seem appropriate. One of the key characters in any "Suicide Squad" movie should be Harley Quinn, the Joker's psychotic girlfriend, but I'm not sure if they're including her or not. Just because there is a rumor that Margot Robbie is being courted to star in the film, that doesn't mean they're using Quinn. I'd love to see Robbie play her, I think. That sounds terrifying. And sort of awesome. She could also easily be Amanda Waller, the doctor who puts the team together. But that's assuming she's »

Having announced its DC Cinematic Universe through to 2020, it appears that Warner Bros. is wasting little time in establishing a cohesive world for its various comic book properties with Deadline reporting that Jesse Eisenberg is in talks to reprise the role of Lex Luthor from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in fellow 2016 release Suicide Squad.
If you’re unfamiliar with Suicide Squad, the comic book series follows the exploits of a team of supervillains who are coerced by Amanda Waller and the government into taking on dangerous ‘suicide’ missions in order to shave time from their prison sentences.
David Ayer (End of Watch, Fury) is set to direct Suicide Squad, while Warner Bros. is said to be looking at the likes of Will Smith (After Earth), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) and Ryan Gosling (Drive) for roles.

Warner Bros. isn't wasting a moment in turning the wheels on their DC Comics movie universe. The hunt is on for a female director to helm "Wonder Woman" with a number of candidates in the mix, and now they are ensuring the Marvel-style world building takes place as they set the blockbuster path to 2020. Deadline reports that discussions are underway for Jesse Eisenberg to reprise his role of Lex Luthor in David Ayer's "Suicide Squad." So I guess, spoiler alert, he doesn't die in "Superman v. Batman: Dawn Of Justice." Then again, nobody ever really dies in comic book movies these days. But it's easy to see why WB wants to keep the actor, and more importantly, the character, around. He's one of Superman's key enemies, but not only that, in the "The Doomsday Protocol" run of comics, he organizes the Suicide Squad to recruit Doomsday (rumored as the »

Many have wondered exactly how Suicide Squad will connect to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the two-part Justice League movie. The answer may lie in Jesse Eisenberg, who is reportedly in talks with Warner Bros. to reprise his role as Lex Luthor in this upcoming David Ayer directed DC Comics adventure.
Warner Bros. is rumored to be transferring this character over as the leader of the Suicide Squad, which follows 7 super villains who must band together under the government's supervision to pull off a deadly mission where everyone is expendable. Who better to pull the plan together than Lex Luthor?
Warner Bros. is said to currently be in talks with an all-star roster that may include Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie. The characters being used are rumored to be Blockbuster (Mark Desmond), Multiplex (Danton Black), Jaculi, Mindboggler (Leah Wasserman), Captain Boomerang (George Harkness), Vixen »
Last week we got word Warner Bros. and DC are eyeing a whole bunch of white-hot talents for Suicide Squad, the supervillain team-up story to be directed by David Ayer. But it seems one of its stars could be someone already in the Warner Bros./DC family. A new report indicates Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice baddie […]

Warner Bros. laid out their entire DC-dominated slate last week, with a number of previously rumoured projects finally landing official confirmation. One which has immediately sprung to the forefront of web chatter is anti-hero caper, Suicide Squad. Straight out of the gate, a rumoured casting wishlist arrived online, and now there’s an additional name joining the ranks. He’ll be new to the film – but not the DC universe, as Deadline reports that Jesse Eisenberg will reprise his Lex Luthor role for Suicide Squad.
Eisenberg will unleash his version of the balding baddie in DC’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and if negotiations are successful it looks like he’ll be bandying up with a crew of supervillains for another DC feature. The actor has a number of commitments on his plate right now, including Arms And The Dudes, Now You See Me 2 and the Zombieland sequel, »

Jesse Eisenberg will become the latest actor to take on the villainous role of Lex Luthor in next summer's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and it would appear we can count on the character becoming a large part of the DC Comics cinematic multiverse as the character is now rumored to be taking part in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Deadline reports Eisenberg is in discussions to reprise Luthor in the film, which will be the direct follow up to Batman v Superman, centering on an antihero team of incarcerated supervillains who act as deniable assets for the United States government, undertaking high-risk black ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences. It's already been reported the studio and Ayer are looking to Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Will Smith to star, though now it seems Gosling has been taken out of that mix. Ayer recently described the film saying, »

As production is looking to wind down on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. is currently reading its third DC Comics film of the new era: Suicide Squad. The project is in some ways an odd follow-up to Batman v Superman in that it doesn’t really feature any of the characters that casual fans might recognize, with Warner Bros. instead saving Wonder Woman, Aquaman, etc. for after Suicide Squad. David Ayer, the writer/director behind Fury and End of Watch, is set to direct and is currently working on the script, and casting has begun with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Tom Hardy all in talks to play members of the titular group of supervillains. But now it looks like Warner Bros. is keen on adding some connective tissue to Suicide Squad that will make it feel more like a piece of the DC Movie Universe, and »

When Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment announced their full slate of films planned for release from now through 2020, many were surprised to see that the next film to follow Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice would be Suicide Squad. The film is set for release on August 5th, 2016 and while we've heard that Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Will Smith and Margot Robbie may end up starring in the film, there's another interesting casting move the studio wants to make. Deadline reports Warner Bros. is in talks to have Jesse Eisenberg reprise his Batman v. Superman role as villain Lex Luthor in the film. Read on! David Ayer is directing the film about a team of imprisoned super-villains who perform high-risk missions for the U.S. Government in exchange for commuted sentences. The team's actions are highly classified, and the government is able to deny any involvement by claiming that »

Looks like Warner Bros. and DC's shared superhero universe might be getting a little more connected as reports have come in now that Jesse Eisenberg's version of Lex Luthor, debuting in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, may also appear in David Ayer's Suicide Squad! Come inside to learn more.
One of the best things about studios implementing a shared universe between their films (especially comic book movies), is the fact that characters can jump aruond from movie to movie. These appearances are a big part of what makes everything feel connected and can be a treat for fans. WB and DC Comics look like they'll be doing everything they can to take full advantage of this as Deadline is reporting that Jesse Eisenberg is currently in talks to bring his Lex Luthor over to the Suicide Squad:

David Ayer's recently confirmed DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad has, according to recent reports, targeting high profile talent like Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Will Smith. Now, Deadline reveals that Ayer is also looking to add Academy Award nominee Jesse Eisenberg, continuing the arc of his Lex Luthor, set to debut in next year's Zack Snyder-helmed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. »
Though the roster of the Suicide Squad was seemingly revealed recently, that report was based on an old version of the script which director David Ayer (Fury) is currently in the process of rewriting before production on the 2016 movie begin next Spring. With Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy all close to signing on to the DC Comics adaptation, a new report over at Deadline reveals that Warner Bros. are in talks with Batman v Superman star Jesse Eisenberg to join the cast! It sounds as if the studio will have to woo him to reprise the role of Lex Luthor in this movie as he's also been lined up to star in Todd Phillips' Arms And The Dudes, meaning he'll have to choose between that and Suicide Squad as he will unlikely be able to do both. The movie which focuses on a group of supervillains who »
