In a recent interview with Vulture, Jesse Eisenberg who portrays Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, briefly talked about a couple of things involving his role as the iconic Man of Steel villain.
One of the topics that was touched upon was how his take on the role differs from Gene Hackman’s in the original 1978 Superman movie, and how much darker and different Batman v Superman is going to be compared to that movie.
Eisenberg obviously read quite a few comic books in order to prepare for his role, but he did reveal that he wasn’t much of a fan prior to landing the part. He’s glad about that though, since he says he would be “too excited to stop smiling” if that wasn’t the case while he was shooting the movie.
