DC fans know and love Michael Rosenbaum as both Lex Luthor from Smallville and The Flash from Justice League. Now the famed hero/villain is passing the torch to Jesse Eisenberg, who has been cast as the new Luthor in Batman vs Superman.

In a recent sit down with Cinekatz, Rosenbaum was asked what role he prefered, his voice over gig as The Flash on Justice League or his live action part as Lex Luthor in Smallville:

“I would lean toward The Flash kind of guy. The guy who wants to take light of the situation, when everyone is so upset and the world is dying he’s like, ‘Hey everything’s going to be alright! Let’s go bowling!’ That’s always been me. That’s kind of me and I’ve always had that temperance- the ability to make things better than they are. I think that’s my gift, honestly, is to entertain. I’d have to say I’d be closer to The Flash. I have some evil in me, but I’d be positive for the most part.”

However, he seemed very happy to be a fan favorite for the part of Luthor in the upcoming Batman Vs Superman movie:

“When they were casting the Lex Luthor part (for Man of Steel 2), It was amazing to see all of the fans reaching out on Twitter and all of the kind words to get me to be Lex Luthor again. I didn’t do anything I just sat back and thought it was really sweet. I’m very lucky.”

Rosenbaum went on to praise the new Luthor, Jesse Eisenberg:

“First off, I think he’s a really good actor. I don’t think he needs any advice from me, he’ll do his homework. Do it your way. I’m sure Zack [Snyder] has an idea. He cast you for reason. Jesse’s a good actor. He’ll do it his own way and that’s the best way. If you can do it your way, if you succeed or fail, you succeed because you are being original. If you’re trying to emulate someone, you’ll always be compared. That’s why I didn’t want to be compared during ‘Smallville.’ I didn’t watch any of Gene Hackman as Lex. He’ll be fantastic. Great actor, no problem with it.”
