Apparently, in the upcoming “justice League” will not the villain Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg. Director Joss Whedon cut the scenes with his participation, reports Digital Spy.
We will remind, after Zack Snyder left the project due to personal tragedy, Warner hired Joss Whedon to finish the film, without going into further some radical alterations already footage. But then came the news that Whedon has redrawn the “League” in their own way. In particular, as it turned out now, got rid of one antagonist.
The last time we saw Lex Luthor in the finale of “Batman vs. Superman”, when the hero Ben Affleck visited in prison. Then Luthor announced the appearance of Steppenwolf, which, in fact, is the Central villain in “justice League,” which starts in theaters on November 16.
Maybe Lex really was unnecessary, given that a huge number of characters in the film. But still uncomfortable. Especially if to recall the words of Jesse Eisenberg said in the end “League”: “I was so excited. It really is a very talented group of people. I love them all.”
However, nothing prevents Lex Luthor to return in the sequel to “Man of steel”.
