Jesse Eisenberg Still Listed In ‘Justice League’ Cast As Lex Luthor

Lex Luthor Justice LeagueAfter reports several weeks ago that his scenes were all cut from the still-in-post-production Justice League, it appears that Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor is still listed among the cast for the fall DC superhero film.

According to an official listing on the Warner Bros. UK website, Jesse Eisenberg is still a part of the film, listed between Willem Dafoe and Jeremy Irons. This has prompted many to question whether Lex Luthor will be a part of Justice League after the reliable reports of his scenes being cut, or that the cast listing for the website is yet to be updated to correspond with the final cut of the film, one which is not done at this time.

There are supporters of Jesse Eisenberg’s performance of Superman’s greatest nemesis, but many superhero fans and general audiences were highly critical of the portrayal, deeming it one of the weakest parts of an already weak film in Batman v Superman. Regardless of what people think about Lex Luthor, he is not really that important to Justice League. The movie is about making the most famous superhero team work, and they’re united against an intergalactic, interdimensional enemy, not a sociopathic billionaire.

We will just have to wait and see when Justice League opens in cinemas November 17.

5 Reasons Warner Bros. Needs To Fast-Track The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel

Previous1 of 6

Henry Cavill Superman Man of SteelSuperman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.

Man of Steel was released in 2013 to decent reviews. The movie was a financial hit, but instead of doing a direct sequel, Warner Bros. went with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has come and gone and Justice League is on the horizon. Last year, it was also announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was coming along. There has been no word on that movie other than a few rumors here and there. This may be due to the situation that Superman was left in at the end of Batman v Superman, which will be resolved in Justice League.

There are many reasons why Man of Steel deserves a sequel. Here are a few reasons Warner Bros. needs to fast-track the project. Click Next to get started!

    I loved Eisenberg’s portrayal of Luthor and hope that he is in Justice League. But even if he’s not, sometimes productions are contractually obligated to include actors in the credits who ultimately ended up being cut from the film. James Karen was listed in the credits of Superman Returns even though every scene of him from the film was edited out except for an offscreen “Goodnight, Martha” comment in the Smallville scenes.

    Thanks god.

  • Sire Joe

    I think we should be rewriting history with him never being in it. That would improve the franchise immensely.

    • Tom of Steel

      Don’t watch it HATER

      • Sire Joe

        lol did I touch a nerve there?

        Never understand why people get so worked up about things they have zero involvement in. Its just a movie man. I have my opinion, you have yours. We are both entitled to them. Theres no need to get so worked up over absolutely nothing.

        • Hinscher

          You say he is getting worked up, yet you are the one that wants to alter History to remove someone from a movie.

          • Sire Joe

            Lol you got me. I wasn’t being hyperbolic or anything…..

    Considering I saw an article on this very site with Iris West actress talking about this movie, a full week after the supposed ‘cuts’ of her and Jesse’s scenes in this movie, I’m as usual taking all DCEU news with a grain of salt.
    Fake News seems to just love DCEU.
    I mean heck, the supposedly best movie in the DCEU “Wonder Woman”, had multiple articles about how horrible the movie was and all these huge problems and such. I say supposedly cause opinions are such, but according to RT it is. According to me it’s not.
