Report: Lex Luthor Cut Out of 'Justice League' Entirely
CinemaBlend reports that one of the changes made when Joss Whedon took over from Zack Snyder was to cut Eisenberg's divisive villain out completely. That's great news for people who really, really hated his jittery interpretation of that character.
They also cite Batman News, who insist that "Justice League" will be Lex Luthor-free. While that hasn't been officially confirmed, we haven't seen Lex in any publicity for the film so far.
