It’s been over two months and it seems people still can’t stop talking about the disappointment that was Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the sophomore film in the newly forming DCEU had a few redeeming qualities, the film wasn’t really what any of us wanted or expected. One thing that really bummed pretty much all of us was the new Lex Luthor. portrayed by the oscar-nominated star Jesse Eisenberg, Luthor was described by many with plenty of negative adjectives. so brace yourself, this news may not make you feel too good. At the MCM London Comic Con, Eisenberg confirmed that he would in fact be included in Justice League part One. Here’s some things he said on the subject:
“They just started filming Justice League, so I’m kind of like waiting for my crack at it. I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, because I feel like there’s probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off. But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who’s in it. You know, it’s a really talented group of people.”
So not much info on what his role in this movie’s story or how large of a role that will be, however I do doubt this will be that big a role. With the rumors of Darkseid and Steppenwolf coming into the fold it seems our DC heroes have some bigger fish to fry.
So are you still disappointed he’s gonna be in JLPO? Or are you the one guy who really liked Jesse in this role? Talk in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more Justice League news and other things in the world of movie news.
BvS is hopefully out of your theater by now, likely replaced by some less disappointing fair. But if you’re hankering for another DC fix, on August 5th Suicide Squad comes to theaters. So look forward to that.
