Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the DC Extended Universe as a whole, spoke about his experience at this years Comic Con and used a very unusual word to describe the experience as “Genocide”.
I’m going to play devil’s advocate here and try to make sense out of what I hope he meant by that. Genocide is by tradition eliminating of a certain race, culture and religion, my thoughts here is perhaps hopefully he meant going to Comic Con was like everyone was all one, there was no race, sexuality, culture or religion that usually separates people, everyone was there and everyone were just fans.
Jesse Eisenberg has been to Comic Con before, however he is not really adept to that world, as he joined the cast of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice due to the character written by Chris Terrio and has openly said he is not a comic book reader and has never watched the older Superman films.
He made his comments while on a promotional tour for his new film “End of the Tour”.
“It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent,” he said.
