Jesse Eisenberg Speaks About His Comic Con 2015 Experience


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.

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
