Zack Snyder Confirms That Lex Luthor Is In The Man Of Steel Sequel, Reveals First Tiny Detail

lex luthorIt’s not much, certainly not in terms of word count, but Zack Snyder is currently taking part in a live fan event webcast for Man of Steel and let slip the following tiny tease:

Lex loves calling him an alien.

It’s a pretty badly kept secret that Lex Luthor will feature in the film, but I think this is our first absolute confirmation, and it also speaks to the kind of dynamic the characters will have, how Luthor will attempt to manipulate the public sentiment.

UPDATE: Snyder has also just reiterated that the film’s sequel will address Superman’s decision to… er… handle Zod the way he does in Man of Steel.
