Batman v Superman Gets Lex Luthor Inspired Wired Special Issue
Last month, Wired Magazine became the latest media company to help out with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's viral campaign. The magazine posted an exclusive and very insightful interview with Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) himself. This came just a few months after Fortune Magazine ran their own profile of the LexCorp CEO, so it wouldn't be surprising if more media outlets start "interviewing" this fictional villain in the near future. While we wait for the next viral interview to surface, Instagram user Cheryl Vuong captured a photo of the cover for Wired Magazine's "Special January Issue," which features Lex Luthor on the cover.
This special cover was made available exclusively to attendees of this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but it isn't known if this will be made available for fans after the convention. As we reported last month, the Lex Luthor "interview" was conducted by Ron Troupe, a fictional journalist from the DC Comics who worked for The Daily Planet. As far as we know, the character Ron Troupe doesn't appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there are still several characters who have not been confirmed yet, so we'll have to wait and see.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set after Superman's titanic struggle against General Zod in Man of Steel. This battle culminated with Metropolis being razed to the ground and Superman is now the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth.
As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman's wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction.
The superhero stand-off that the world has been waiting for is finally arriving in cinemas, with an all-star cast bringing to life the characters we all love. Zack Snyder (300) returns as director following the huge success of 2013's Man of Steel, along with Henry Cavill in the role of Superman. Also starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an explosive, action-packed blockbuster that is sure to thrill DC fans everywhere. Take a look at this special cover of Wired Magazine, featuring Lex Luthor from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in theaters March 25.
