Justice League star Jesse Eisenberg has revealed why he isn’t officially a part of the Zack Snyder Cut movement.
Jesse Eisenberg made his DC Extended Universe debut in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, playing the iconic DC Comics villain Lex Luthor. The Academy Award-nominated actor then reprised his role as Lex Luthor for one of the post-credits scenes of 2017’s Justice League, but his future as the character is currently in doubt despite the fact that he has stated that he’d like to return to the DCEU.
During a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, Jesse Eisenberg discussed why he’s not as outspoken as his Justice League co-stars when it comes to the much-discussed Zack Snyder Cut. Here’s what the actor had to say on the matter:
“I’m not sure because I don’t watch anything I’ve been in, and I haven’t seen either Batman v Superman or Justice League. I know that I had a smaller part in one of them but I get pretty uncomfortable watching myself. So I’m not aware of a Snyder Cut. I’m not part of — I don’t even know what to call it — the movement. I like Zack Snyder and I worked with him for a while just by virtue of these movies taking so long to film. I love his style and aesthetic and if there’s a movie he wanted to see released, I’m sure it would be great.”
When asked about his appearance in the post-credits scene of Justice League and his future as Lex Luthor, Jesse Eisenberg stated the following:
“I love that part but I don’t know what they’re doing with any of the movies. Playing him was the kind of thing you get to do in acting class in high school and never get to do in a movie.”

Here’s the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
