Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor this week and the internet exploded. So, the Talking Comics crew dig into, not just, what they think of the man who was Mark Zuckerberg playing Superman’s biggest foe, but why we all get so bent out of shape about who gets cast in comic book movies in general. The gang also discussed Justice League: War and discusses the validity of winter preparedness in Arkansas with guest host Mara Wood.
We also, of course, discuss Our Books of the Week, which include: The Unwritten Vol. 8, Furious, Serenity: Leaves on the Wind, Lil’ Sonja, Earth-2, Bad Dog, Thor: God of Thunder, and Happy Marriage.
