Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor spills some never-before-heard details about the upcoming 2016 film, "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," in an interview with fictional journalist Ron Troupe.

Wired content sponsored by Warner Bros. Entertainment called "Lexical Analysis," revealed how Troupe was able to 'interview' one of Superman's most formidable foes, who will be portrayed in the DC Extended Universe movie, "Dawn of Justice."

"The impending launch of his company's revolutionary new operating system Lex/OS (I got my hands on the beta and, yeah, it's awesome) seemed like the perfect moment to sit down with the dynamic and, at times, controversial, young genius behind the LexCorp magic to see what else he's got up his sleeve," Troupe's 'report' began.

According to Screen Rant, the supposed interview mostly tackled potential threats presented by what Luthor described as humans or aliens, whom people elevate to the "super" status, as well as those who are deemed 'vigilantes' who work in the shadows.

From there, the conversation proceeded to Luthor's "new global paradigm," where he mentioned the role of the government and an agency called "Argus."

"If she... they... Argus... the government, whatever you want to call it, has a real interest in fighting for the future, they ought to work with those of us who are already on the front lines," he adds, piquing the journalist's interest who asks how 'Argus' is spelled.

According to Screen Rant, Luthor was referring to the Advanced Research Group United Support that 'she,' Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), and other 'corrupt' officials in the government formed in order to tackle threats that couldn't be faced by mere tanks and guns.

This agency is also the same one that will eventually form the "Suicide Squad," who will debut in their own movie as the second leg of the DCEU on August 5, 2016.

The fictional interview also featured graphics that presented companies that Luthor deemed to be LexCorps' rivals, including Bruce Wayne's Wayne Enterprises and the Queen Industries, which is owned by billionaire Oliver Queen, whom D.C. comics fans know better as the "Green Arrow."

What is more interesting is that Green Arrow was once a member of A.R.G.U.S., which makes the DCEU a bit confusing since Warner Bros. and DC have implied their lack of interest in combining films and TV series together.

The Green Arrow, portrayed by Stephen Amell, is featured in The CW TV show "Arrow," which is currently in its fourth season.
