The interview has Luthor (played by Jesse Eisenberg) gives his opinion of “super humans’ and the Batman:
RON TROUPE: And what are your thoughts on the Batman? He’s human. Presumably.
LEX LUTHOR: Well, he is. In fact, I’d say 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.
RON TROUPE: When you put it that way, it sounds ridiculous.
LEX LUTHOR: It didn’t when the Batman first appeared, but that was a long time ago. This is a new world, Ron, and it’s time to get serious.
The interview concludes with an infographic showing how LexCorp compares to the competition. While LexCorp is at the top, fans will notice some familiar names on the visual, including Kord Industries, Stagg, Queen Industries, and – of course – Wayne Enterprises. The article notes that Wayne Enterprises is at the bottom of the list partly due to CEO Bruce Wayne’s refusal to take military contracts, which makes it seem really strange that he’s developing a prototype plane and exoskeletal technology with no other proof of concept.
Interviewer Ron Troupe himself is an interesting choice for the piece. Troupe is the reporter who replaced Clark Kent at the Daily Planet after Superman’s death. It seems timely that he should get a mention after the latest trailer revealed the inclusion of Doomsday in the film.
