Actor Jessie Eisenberg, known for playing  Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook founder) in the film, The Social Network, has been on the receiving end off late.

After the makers of the upcoming sequel of the film Man of Steel, confirmed that Jessie will be playing Lex Luthor, Superman’s nemesis, social networking sites were left twittering in frenzy with fans bashing the decision.

“@marcusprolifik: I’m trying my best to be optimistic and shit, but Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor? I JUST CANT SEE IT,” wrote one user while another wisecracked, “@jingolfs85: Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if they cast Justin Bieber as Robin (SIC).”
