Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may still be two years away - but we’re already starting to get the first few hints through the grapevine of what it’s going to be like. The latest of these has given us an idea of just what to expect from Lexcorp - and it's potentially going to put the film on a collision course with Facebook.
Batman-News is reporting that scenes at Lexcorp - Lex Luthor's pride and joy - will be shot June 12th and 13th - and that the company is going to look very familiar:
A source close to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has informed me that production is heading to LexCorp next week. In Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel, LexCorp is described as a young, edgy company. Think of it as a .com or Google type workplace. It’s a smart company with a stylish vibe, a youthful clash of rock and roll, preppy, and nerdy employees. Hipsters!
They might list Google, but this is Jesse Eisenberg playing Luthor, after all. If there's one company that the filmmakers are targeting for satire, it seems likely to be theone that indirectly made Eisenberg famous in The Social Network - Facebook.
For those who haven't warmed to Dawn of Justice as the film's title, how does Batman v Superman: The Social Network Returns sound? Armie Hammer must be expecting a call any day now...
[Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) is currently due to be released on May 6, 2016.
