Reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been mixed amongst fans and critics. Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor was at the center of many discussions, some loving his performance and others not connecting with his portrayal at all.
During a recent interview with MTV News while promoting Now You See Me 2, Eisenberg explained that many of his character choices will be explained when the film’s longer cut is released.
“It’s a very complicated mythology that I was able to wrap my head around while we were filming. But I think there were certain editorial choices that I was not aware of that they put in retroactively.”
An extended Rated-R version of Batman v Superman will be released, the movie will feature 30 more minutes of footage, new characters who didn’t appear in the final cut, such as Jena Malone.
“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.”
