Jesse Eisenberg Talks Playing Lex Luthor In Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice


Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeJesse Eisenberg can be quite funny.

Following the release of its first trailer, everyone can’t stop talking about Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

We are all eager to see what the film will look like, especially with the reservations some of us already have about it.

Apart from Ben Affleck playing Batman, one other reservation I’ve had about the movie is the fact that Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, Zombieland), will be playing Lex Luthor. While I absolutely agree he is a good actor, those who have seen Eisenberg at work will probably have the same reservations as I do. The problem is, he just isn’t intimidating enough. Lex Luthor is one of the most intimidating villains out there, and I just don’t think Jesse Eisenberg can properly reflect.

In this interview on Late Night with Seth Meyer, he talks about playing Lex Luthor and he was actually able to assuage some of my fears.

If you have those fears too (or you just love seeing Jesse Eisenberg’s face), watch the interview below.
