On the topic of Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luthor… Summing up reactions I’m seeing on Facebook etc, it seems like people who liked MoS are like this:

If you remember when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker it was as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror – and were suddenly silenced when the film came out.

I’m pretty excited for the new Marvel stuff – Captain America 2 and Ant-Man. I hope SHIELD gets better, and I love Daredevil/Luke Cage/Iron Fist/Jessica Jones so I’m looking forward to those shows.

I’ve also been watching Arrow recently and am interested to see what they do with The Flash series.
