I mean really, if you were to plan it out, Lex was just awfully planned. All Snyder thought out was him as a crazy Mark Zuckerberg, when he should have been an even more intertwined Loki to the DC Universe.
With Trump's Election, it's pretty obvious by the end of their Phase One, Luthor should have been elected President and gotten away with his schemes. Luthor doesn't have to be the main antagonist in these movies, but have an imposing presence that overshadows the universe.
I just don't understand how anyone can defend Snyder/Eisenburg's interpretation of the character. Why wasn't he a pragmatic idealist who really didn't perceive that all of his steps in improving humanity in the end only benefited himself? He's instead totally nuts who doesn't really seem to have a grasp on reality. He's simply awful in this universe and should have always been an imposing badass who really ruled the world with Superman being the only person who stood up to his power.
