It sounds as though Warner Bros. is in talks with Jesse Eisenberg to join the cast of David Ayer's Suicide Squad as Lex Luthor. Fans already know we will see Eisenberg as Luthor in the 2016 Man of Steel sequel Batman v Superman.
This would complicate the expectation that Eisenberg would star in the Todd Phillips-directed Arms And The Dudes. It is unlikely he'll be able to feature in both films.
Eisenberg is already set to reprise in Now You See Me 2, and this one is a clear priority since Kevin Tsujihara told Wall Street that it would be a 2016 release. There’s also a Zombieland 2 sequel that got some momentum with Dave Callaham writing the draft for Ruben Fleischer.
Suicide Squad is set for release in August 2016 and is rumored to star the likes of Will Smith, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie. The film will deal with a group of supervillains who are brought together to tackle high-risk black ops missions for the government. This is one in the growing universe of DC properties and getting this duo would be the makings of a pretty good mission movie.
Warner Bros. would not comment.
Stay tuned for more news as it develops!
