Jesse Eisenberg On His Future As Lex Luthor With DC Films

Batman v Superman Lex Luthor Jesse Eisenberg DC Films Justice League

Jesse Eisenberg comments on whether he’ll be playing Lex Luthor again in future DC Films after last appearing in the Justice League post-credits scene.

Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor role with DC Films seems to have run its course if the star’s recent comments are to be believed. Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor made his debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, attempting to turn the world against Superman — before pitting the titular heroes against each other. While some fans weren’t sold on Jesse Eisenberg’s performance, he was brought back for further planned DC Films, starting with a cameo appearance at the end of Justice League.

When speaking to ComicBookMovie ahead of Zombieland: Double Tap, Jesse Eisenberg seemingly confirmed that he wouldn’t be appearing as Lex Luthor again for DC Films. While the Lex Luthor actor doesn’t dive into specifics it’s most likely down to the reception to Justice League and the controversy surrounding the Snyder Cut. When Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson were asked about their on-screen comic book villains, the Lex Luthor actor jokingly replied that they would be appearing in “different venues.” Take a look at Jesse Eisenberg’s comments about Lex Luthor below.

“Different venues. I will say, quite confidently, different venues. His will be, like, kind of a movie that people go to and mine will be in my living room that people occasionally go to but mostly one at a time.”

Jesse Eisenberg was last seen as Lex Luthor in Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:

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. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. 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.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.

Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Jesse Eisenberg, Lex Luthor and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
