Earlier this week, Henry Cavill dropped by Good Morning America to discuss his role in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Another cast member from the movie, Jesse Eisenberg, also made an appearance on the show earlier today and debuted an awesome new clip, featuring Lex Luthor giving a “pep talk” to the Man of Steel ahead of his fight with the Caped Crusader.

The actor also talked about the secrecy surrounding the project, all the fun he had while portraying the villainous character, how it felt to be next to Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill on the set of the movie and a few other topics. You can watch the new clip, plus the interview right below and sound-off your thoughts in the comment section.

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on March 25, 2016. Are you looking forward to seeing more of Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the movie?

    Man i really can not wait to his performance that everyone is raving over, i love the score from that clip as well. i feel like we’ve only seen what they want us to see of luthor everyone eludes to this secret personality that hasn’t been shown in clips or footage.

    • I agree, I think Snyder, despite what haters are saying, has been strategic in showing us exactly what he wants us to see and hear. They aren’t just throwing out footage willy nilly, Doomsday was a teaser, I believe we’ll see Lex in his battle suit, as the toys have shown is fully designed and included in the 9″ playset with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. I think they are keeping the best stuff for the release.

    Of everything I’ve seen from this movie so far in trailers and other clips, it’s the bits and pieces of this speech (the writing as much as the delivery) that hasn’t really worked for me. I like his “I love bringing people together” scene, and the other (very few) bits and pieces of his performance that we’ve seen, but this “day vs. night…etc.” stuff just hasn’t ever worked for me, and from what this clip shows, I’m not sure it’s going to work any better in context.

    I wonder what character they originally wanted Jesse Eisenberg to play originally…totally skipped the question! Makes me believe it s character we don’t know about.

      i think it’s scoot mcnairy’s character. When snyder talked about it he said it was a small role.
