Lex Luthor may soon be joining the Suicide Squad…at least in the DC Cinematic Universe.
Deadline reports this week that Jesse Eisenberg is in talks to play Lex Luthor in 2016′s Suicide Squad. In addition, Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Margot Robbie are reportedly being sought for the David Ayer-directed film.
Luthor’s relationship to the Suicide Squad remains a mystery. But the premise for the film sees various supervillains recruited by the government for black op missions.
Eisenberg will debut his take on Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which comes out on March 15, 2016.
