Batman Vs. Superman (2016) - Lex Luthor And Alfred Pennyworth Have Been Cast

The Hollywood Reporter brings us the following casting news:
Jesse Eisenberg has been set to star as the comic-book super-villain, while Jeremy Irons will play Bruce Wayne’s trusted friend, ally and mentor Alfred in the upcoming Zack Snyder untitled Superman-Batman film.
The casting of Lex Luthor has spawned rumors for months, with everyone from Bryan Cranston to Joaquin Phoenix said to be in the mix. Ben Affleck will play Batman, while Henry Cavill reprises his Man of Steel starring role as Superman. Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.
"Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman's rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940," Snyder said in a statement. "What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He's a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions."
As for Irons' casting, Snyder called the role, "an absolutely critical element in the intricate infrastructure that allows Bruce Wayne to transform himself into Batman." He added, "It is an honor to have such an amazingly seasoned and gifted actor as Jeremy taking on the important role of the man who mentors and guides the guarded and nearly impervious fa├žade that encapsulates Bruce Wayne."
