Lex Luthor was a controversial figure in Batman v Superman. Love him or hate him, he made a huge impact on the film. So it’s not really surprising that his character would be cut from the giant superhero film. In a Q&A with Batman-on-Film, it was revealed that Lex may not be in the film.

We’ve heard mention of Luthor, briefly mentioned in a radio broadcast in the latest Justice League trailer. But that may be the most we have of the villain. When asked how large of a role Luthor will have in the upcoming film, BOF answered simply.

He doesn’t have one. If he did prior to all the changes/reshoots, it was cut.

This is obviously not an official confirmation. But would be interesting. Frankly, I think the film will be better for it. We already have 3 other main characters to establish, villains Steppenwolf and Parademons, the Amazons, and more! This film will already be filled to the gills. We deserve a break from the craziness known as Lex Luthor, at least for one film.

What do you think of the rumor? Let us know! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more DCEU news!
