Whether you are a die-hard Superman fan, or a devout follower of all things Black Knight, you can’t help but notice things are shaking up with Warner Bros. upcoming Superman/Batman film.

This morning, the studio announced its latest cast choices for key characters Lex Luthor and Alfred.

According to the LA Times, much of the speculation around the actors chosen for these two roles is actually way off base.

The complex character of Lex Luthor is set to be embodied by Jessie Eisenberg. Known for his roles in Zombieland and the Social Network, it will be interesting to see if he can pull off the level of brilliance, cunning, and influence which makes Luthor such an outstanding villian.

Michael Caine’s role of our loveable-yet-firm Alfred will be reprised by none other than Jeremy Irons. Larkable can’t claim to be totally excited about the change, but we have been pleasantly surprised before, so here’s to hoping!

All in all, this as yet unnamed Man of Steel sequel continues with it’s controversial choices in cast members. We’re looking forward to either enjoying or hating the finished product in July, 2015… I mean May 6, 2016. Sorry, that got changed too!
