[Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) is one of the most intriguing films that is coming out within the next year. With little to no details being revealed about the film, it is hard to really know what exactly to expect going into the movie. There are some that are very excited about every aspect of the movie and there definitely are some who are skeptical. One thing that has attracted a lot of skepticism was the casting decision of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Straying away from the original concept of the character, Eisenberg is definitely an interesting option. While many don't believe in his ability, Eisenberg had some positive things to say about his portrayal of Lex Luthor!

Jesse Eisenberg thinks his Lex Luthor is SCARY!

Jesse Eisenberg seems to be the only cast member that is being vocal about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and he had some very encouraging things to say about Lex Luthor. Speaking with Vulture, Eisenberg had this to say:

There is this trove of stuff about this guy. A lot of it’s repetitive, like he always winds up on the roof of his building giving some faux benevolent talk about how he’s going to change the city,” he said. “It’s fun to take that campy cartoony stuff and try to put it into a real person and try to reconcile the two.”

Eisenberg seems to be having fun with the role and I can't wait to see it. When asked about the comparison between the previous incarnation of Lex Luthor, Gene Hackman, Eisenberg had this to say:

This movie is so different … it has real psychological underpinnings, and this movie character feels like a real scary person.”

This Lex Luthor may be darker than we may have ever imagined. Eiesenberg pulls of the psychotic character very well and I can't wait to see it. Will the abundance of insane and craziness going through the character's head, will Eisenberg prove his haters wrong?

Will Eisenberg prove all of his doubters wrong?

Jesse Eisenberg is an interesting actor, people either love him or hate him. He definitely has a tremendous range as an actor but usually sticks to the socially awkward characters. Lex Luthor is a new genre of character that Eisenberg isn't very accustomed to. I think Eisenberg will prove everyone wrong and put on an outstanding performance. I think his great and unique acting qualities will be the driving force behind our brand new and (hopefully) improved Lex Luthor. It will be interesting to see the interactions that he has between the characters and how well he will interact on-screen with the rest of the cast, Henry Cavill in particular. Jesse Eisenberg is an outstanding actor who is more than capable of putting on and amazing performance. Hopefully that is exactly what we get and he proves all of his skeptics wrong! The Red Capes are coming!


Do you think Jesse Eisenberg will be a good Lex Luthor?
