Lex Luthor, the tech boy genius who turned his father’s company into a Fortune 500 beast, now has a plan to protect all of humanity.
In a new piece for Wired, it is revealed that Luthor (whose company has now received a $2 billion dollar defense contract) is poised to become humanity’s champion, and usher in a new era of security and prosperity for humanity. This new contract puts LexCorp far ahead of competitors including Queen Industries, whose often absent CEO is rumored to be moving away from defence contracts. Meanwhile, Wayne Industries and its CEO is still refusing to accept military contracts despite spending nine figures on a prototype plane and exoskeleton tech.
Luthor also had something to say about the subject of increased vigilantism in Gotham City, and the presence of the Batman saying that “he’s all too human. Any objective analyst will tell you that his brand of justice, vigilantism, is painfully outmoded, designed to be effective in an age when the law carried billy clubs because crime carried knives. The most dangerous guy on the street worked in the shadows because he was cowardly and superstitious. That’s all you needed to play upon in order to disrupt their operations. You want to clean up the streets? Dress up like the boogeyman, switch on a fog machine and lower your voice.”
Entertaining and on point, this new interview is another brilliant piece of sponsored content for Zack Snyder’s forthcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While actor Jesse Eisenberg has already won us over in the film’s trailers with his intense and slightly manic portrayal of Luther, this interview offers fans a deeper look into the character’s mind, while teasing some great new DC Universe touch points such as the presence of Queen Industries and its ‘absent minded CEO’.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to stun audiences when it’s released in cinemas on March 24, 2016 in Australia and New Zealand, and March 25, 2016 in the US and UK.
