'Batman v. Superman' Epilogue: LexCorp Suspends Operations

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor - H 2016
"Are we entering the second round?"

What happens to a corporation when its CEO turns out to be an insane domestic terrorist?

In an unexpected epilogue to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Instagram account of LexCorp Industries — the company owned and operated by Doomsday-creator Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) — has announced that, "due to unfortunate circumstances," it will be temporarily suspending its operations.

Up to this point, the online presence of LexCorp had been a promotional tool for Batman v. Superman; in addition to the Instagram account, there was also a corporate site that teased Lex/OS, a game concerning LexCorp's artificial intelligence research — a plot thread entirely absent from BvS.

The new Instagram post also appears to tease next year's Justice League, with a quote from Luthor himself asking, "Are we entering the second round?"

The question of whether Eisenberg will return as Luthor for the project is one that apparently doesn't have an answer just yet, although the character apparently will have some part to play in future events.)

Justice League goes into production next month for a Nov. 2017 release.
