Leonardo DiCaprio was among the candidates to portray Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The director of the film, Zack Snyder, announced this.

The 49-year-old actor met with the project management and his candidacy was even considered among other applicants. But in the end, the role went to Jesse Eisenberg.

“In many ways, I think he’s the one who pitched me on the idea of ​​Superman fighting the Justice League,” Zack Snyder said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

Interestingly, years later, DiCaprio advised his young colleague Timothée Chalamet to never star in a “superhero” movie. Meanwhile, the movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” released in 2016, received mixed reviews from critics. The film was also considered a box office disappointment. Perhaps DiCaprio’s acting intuition paid off.
