Jesse Eisenberg Discusses His Future with Lex Luthor, Justice League and More

Jesse Eisenberg, whose plays Lex Luthor in the DC Extended Universe, recently spoke with The Shortlist about how much he wants to continue playing the infamous role and when he begins shooting Justice League.

ON PLAYING THE ROLE FOR MORE FILMS 

“I loved the character and it was the most fun I’ve ever had at playing a role, and most challenging, in a great way, and most rewarding.

“I would love to play it for years.

ON WHEN HE STARTS SHOOTING JUSTICE LEAGUE 

“They are filming (Justice League) now, and I jump in from August”

ABOUT HOW HE SEES PLAYING LEX LUTHOR JR. 

“The character I play is so unusual and complicated. As an actor he’s everything you’d want to do. It’s very exciting for me to play that role. And, secondarily, it’s interesting to be in these massive, high-profile movies, because all the stuff around you as an actor is really good. All the artists are really great, so you walk on to a set and it’s the most-detailed, comprehensive set, and as an actor it really fills in your imagination in a special way.

“The most exciting part was to play such an interesting character and I certainly hope he stays alive throughout the next few films.”

ABOUT WORKING WITH HOLLY HUNTER ON BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

“You’re also acting with incredible actors. In the last movie I had lots of scenes with Holly Hunter, who has been one of my favourite actors since I was young. This all exists because this movie is so massive that they attract so many talented people, even in smaller positions. It was really special to me.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
