A recent report from Batman-News claims to have details on Lex Luthor and the overall inspiration that Lexcorp will have in the upcoming Man Of Steel Sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
A source close to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has informed me that production is heading to LexCorp next week. In Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel, LexCorp is described as a young, edgy company. Think of it as a .com or Google type workplace. It’s a smart company with a stylish vibe, a youthful clash of rock and roll, preppy, and nerdy employees. Hipsters!
The LexCorp scene will be shot on June 12th and 13th and it will take place in the fall. Actors will be wearing layers with long sleeves, lightweight jackets, and blazers.
While I certainly hope that the description is an exaggeration due to the known fact that Google is known to have one of those really unique “hipster” environment, which is the polar opposite of the “cold and calculated” vibe given in the comics. This report also wouldn’t make much sense if its a “young” company given all of the easter eggs in Man Of Steel showing Lexcorp on every fuel tanker, I’ve personally never seen a fuel/energy company that’s been branded “hipsters” unless they’re trying to push some new form of “green energy.”
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is currently set for a May 6th 2016 release date.
