Jesse Eisenberg on Playing Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman


Jesse Eisenberg who’s playing Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoke to Variety about his role in the film or at least what he could say about it.

You just wrapped playing Lex Luthor in “Batman v Superman.” Is your head still shaved?
I can’t say anything about this stuff. They want all this to be a surprise.

Do you think you’ll play Lex again in a “Superman” sequel?
I would love to. It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play.

Were you a fan of “Superman” growing up?

You weren’t?
I never minded him.

Did you watch the movies at all?
Oh, just to understand the context of this one. But no, not as a child.
