You guys, Lex Luthor will be returning to the big screens!
The actor revealed the casting news at the MCM London Comic Con on Sunday (29th May). He also mentioned that Warner Bros just started filming recently.
“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,” said the “Now You See Me 2” actor.
Since shooting is already underway, it’s uncertain whether the mad genius will get a lot of screen time in the film. There’s also no indication the new film will explain Lex Luthor’s deleted scene titled, “Communion”.
Besides that, Eisenberg opened up about his take on the frequently re-interpreted Lex Luthor. His portrayal of the villain has received many mixed reactions from DC fans and movie critics.
He said, “What I wanted to do with the character is kind of what I want to do in this play, which is I want to humanise these people that you have seen…dehumanised. I wanted to make these people real and relatable and interesting and engaging, not just, you know, a surface bad person.”
We think he did a great job playing Superman’s long-time nemesis, don’t you?
Slated for release on 17th November 2017, director Zack Snyder’s “Justice League Part One” stars Henry Cavil as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
