George Miller is a fascinating man.
Decades before directing one of the best movies of 2015 and earning an Oscar nomination for his efforts, he was a doctor working in Sydney, Australia who practically stumbled into filmmaking with the original Mad Max. Between now and then, he’s written, produced and directed mainstream successes and cult favorites alike, experimenting in various mediums and never settling on a single genre. And in a new interview, he opens up about his life and career in a big way, talking about Mad Max: Fury Road and Babe and his canceled Justice League movie and his relationship with Stanley Kubrick and so much more.

Zack Snyder is basically the God of the DC Comic movies right now. With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he’s not only setting up the two titular characters for future films, but also Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and maybe more. What he did with these heroes in the upcoming superhero pic will, most likely, heavily influence what Warner Bros. does going forward.
What does former Batman director Christopher Nolan think about the new direction Snyder is taking Bruce Wayne in, though? Does he miss the character at all?

Last night, The CW aired the awkwardly titled DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League, which existed for one reason and one reason only: to get you and everyone else excited about Warner Bros.’ new superhero universe.
And did it work? Well, we got that wild and lively Suicide Squad trailer, our first glimpse at footage from the still-filming Wonder Woman, and a whole bunch of co-host Kevin Smith mugging for the camera, so you be the judge. Overall, we’d say whole presentation left a positive taste in the mouth, which is more than we can say for most of the recent Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailers.
The special also teased superheroes who will be introduced further down the line, offering a fresh glimpse at Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash via some new new Justice League concept art.

Based on the reaction to last month’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, fans aren’t quite sure what to make of Jesse Eisenberg‘s take on Lex Luthor. The character looks bubbly, smarmy, and conniving, and a little different from the Luthor fans know. But I’m all for trying something new with a comic book character, especially one we’ve seen as much as this villain, so I’m looking forward to seeing what director Zack Snyder and the actor have done with Superman’s adversary.
In October, Fortune ran a “profile piece” on the mad genius, and now Wired (via ComicBookMovie) has run a Lex Luthor interview as well. Get to know a little bit more about the businessman after the jump.
