Some DC fans felt that Jesse Eisenberg crossed the line when he compared San Diego Comic-Con's energy to genocide, but when it comes to true evil, the actor's complaining pales in comparison to his on-screen tyranny as Lex Luthor in [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870).
Heroic Hollywood's Umberto Gonzalez shared a tidbit of information on the character's motives in the upcoming film, which directly affect Superman's life and put his loved ones in jeopardy -- particularly Martha Kent, Clark Kent's adoptive human mother who is no stranger to being threatened by Superman's enemies.
As per usual, read this possible spoiler at your own risk:
So what is the heinous act that Lex Luthor commits in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice?
You know who he kidnaps in the movie?
Take a wild guess?
Superman's mom yo!
It seems that Martha Kent is once again put in jeopardy as the young mogul kidnaps her, more than likely in an attempt to lure Superman out into the public once more. While the details are slim, the story isn't unbelievable at all; one of the oldest and easiest comic book tropes involves putting the loved ones of various heroes and heroines in mortal danger in order to further the plot line, so this kind of news isn't all that surprising, but Gonzalez deliberately left out how the ordeal ends -- and who survives it.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice premieres on March 25, 2016.
