Lex Luthor Star Jesse Eisenberg Says He’ll Be “Shocked” If He Appears In Another DC Movie

Jesse Eisenberg isn’t very anticipating whether he’ll return as Lex Luthor in the DC Films Universe — in his own words, he’ll be “shocked” if he ever appears in another DC movie. However, Eisenberg also pointed out that it would be a “happy shock” if it were to happen. Jesse Eisenberg played Lex Luthor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice In 2016, where he was the main villain manipulating Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman in brutal fights. Eisenberg’s Lex was also featured in Justice League (2017) and Zack Snyders Justice League (2021), where he was set for a major role in the upcoming franchise.

However, as director Zack Snyder’s era of DC Films comes to an end, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor film looks like a pretty definite addition to the list of universe elements that will be cut from the franchise’s future. For his part, Jesse Eisenberg seems perfectly fine with DC moving forward:

“Listen, I’m not a fan of comic books,” said Eisenberg time limit, “For me, it was not playing a role that I had imagined since childhood. For me, it was a chance to play this great character that was written by this great writer, and I loved doing that. So, it was It’s a pleasure to play, and not playing it is not something I’m ashamed to tell my kids about, because it’s not an important genre in my life, even though I loved doing that film. ”

Eisenberg might not have loved it as much as the intense reaction to Batman v Superman:

“I was feeling very personal about it,” he told a crowd at the 28th Sarajevo Film Festival. “The writer, Chris Terrio, is a very serious writer, and he’s a very emotional person. He thought a lot about my character, and I thought a lot about my character, too. I talked about the character with my acting coach. Talked a lot with my father about his backstory and his emotional life—and then people hate me.”

Still, despite the turbulent experience of playing Lex Luthor in a big DC movie, Jesse Eisenberg hasn’t completely deterred him from comic book movies: “Because as an actor, you can do all kinds of different things. And sometimes great roles appear in really commercial things and sometimes terrible roles appear in independent films.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition is streaming on HBO Max.
