Jesse Eisenberg says that he’d like to see Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League released to fans because he shot scenes as Lex Luthor.
While promoting Zombieland: Double Tap, Jesse Eisenberg discussed Zack Snyder’s mythical Justice League cut which supposedly includes his original vision of the film with Darkseid. Fans have been rallying around Zack Snyder to try to convince Warner Bros. to release his original version of Justice League, believing they’re missing out on extra scenes from the DC Extended Universe movie.
In the interview for Yahoo’s BUILD series, Jesse Eisenberg revealed that although he doesn’t know anything about Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut, he’d like to see it if it exists, saying it would be “cool to see.” Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor only briefly appeared in Justice League, but he apparently shot scenes for the film that didn’t make it into the theatrical cut. Jesse Eisenberg also explained that he doesn’t watch any of his projects on principle which is why he hasn’t seen the Zack Snyder film. Take a look at the interview with Jesse Eisenberg about Zack Snyder’s Justice League below.
Jesse Eisenberg: I don’t know anything about it and I wasn’t there enough, like I’m not in the movie enough.
Interviewer: “I don’t necessarily think it exists or anything, but is that strange the way these conspiracies – even just in the realm of mainstream entertainment movies have started to bubble up, like it can’t just be a movie. Now it’s like ‘this has a special cut that everybody took away and they’re trying to deny this man his artistic vision’ kind of thing?”
Jesse Eisenberg: “Oh, is that the feeling? Okay. Well I guess that would be a cool thing to see, right?
Interviewer: “Do you want them to release the Snyder Cut?”
Jesse Eisenberg: “I might be in another scene of it, so sure, yeah. Because I did some scenes that I think are not in the movie — but I haven’t seen the movie.
