According to early reports, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor didn’t make it into Justice League.
Warner Bros. recently screened the anticipated superhero crossover before a lucky audience. Batman News has since tweeted that Lex Luthor’s subplot was absent from the version shown. While this isn’t necessarily the final cut, it appears we probably won’t be seeing Lex or any of his Jolly Ranchers in the finished film.

Previous reports already speculated that Luthor might’ve been cut during Joss Whedon’s reshoots of the film. Considering that Eisenberg won a Razzie for his portrayal of the character in Batman v Superman, this isn’t especially surprising.
