September 21, 2017: Lex Luthor Scenes Cut from "Justice League" Final Edit

According to Batman-News.com, sources who have attended an early screening of the "Justice League" movie report that there was no appearance at all by Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.

In December 2016 Warner Bros. sent out their 2017 movie preview press kit, which included a cast listing for "Justice League", and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was on that list.

Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Raymond Fisher, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielson, J.K. Simmons

Action Adventure. Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes - Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash - it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Obviously scripts change during production, and scenes can be cut during post-production, so perhaps the scenes with Lex Luthor were excized at some point in the process.

"Justice League" will be released to theaters on November 17, 2017.
