Eisenberg’s Lex To Appear In “Justice League: Part One”

Actor confirms return to the DCEU

No good bad villain ever stays captured for long, especially Alexander Joseph Luthor.

And Jesse Eisenberg, the actor who recently portrayed Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, confirmed he will return to the role in Justice League: Part One. He mentioned his return during the MCM London Comic Con. “I’m kind of in wait,” said Eisenberg. “They just started filming Justice League, so I’m kind of like waiting for my crack at it.

Eisenberg wasn’t if he was allowed to share the information. “I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, because I feel like there’s probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off,” he said.

At the same event, Eisenberg also opened up about how he approached his take on Lex Luthor (courtesy of Comicbook.com). “I wanted to make these people real and relatable and interesting and engaging, not just, you know, a surface bad person. To me, the most interesting acting is when actors can bring you into that other side of the person.” You can catch more of his remarks in the video below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still in theaters, while Justice League: Part One debuts on November 17, 2017.
