Will “Batman V Superman” actor Jesse Eisenberg no longer play the role of Lex Luthor in the upcoming “Justice League” movie? Was this because his role in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” disappointed fans?


While there have been no official confirmation yet that he 32-year-old actor will no longer reprise the role of the villain in the future DC Comics films after “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” he hinted that he would be extremely glad should he be given the chance to do it again, according to Business Insider.

“I don’t know if they are so settled on where my character goes,” the actor shared during an interview with the news site. It was learned that while his co-actors in the film, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, signed up for multiple movies, it was not the case for Jesse Eisenberg.

He is not losing hope though. “I only hope I have another opportunity to work with these wonderful people and play this interesting character,” he said. He said he will be “thrilled” if he will get to sign up again for another set of future projects as Lex Luthor.

This brought up questions whether his performance on “Batman V Superman” killed his chances of joining Justice League or other DC films. It is not a secret that a lot of fans hated his performance on the movie, as reported by Looper.

Amid this situation, the former “Get Real” star is expected to be seen on the big screen via indie drama “Louder Than Bombs” on April 8 and “Café Society,” which is set to open the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

Despite his passion for acting, Eisenberg does not like watching his own movies. According to Business Insider, Eisenberg finds it hard to love how he looks on pictures.

“The parallel allegory is when you go away for the weekend with your family and you get all of the pictures back. You’ve taken a hundred pictures and you only like two of the pictures and you send them to all of your friends and the rest you’re totally mortified by how you look,” he explained.

    How could anyone think he can pull it off? Really, you got this always 13 looking weirdo that everybody loves to hate and you take him and put him into one of the most iconic movies of the century. Peter Dinklage could’ve been more successful Lex.
