Jesse Eisenberg has recently assured fans his casting as supervillain Lex Luthor is justified once they will watch “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
When director Zack Snyder of the movie announced “The Social Network” actor as the Superman comic book’s supervillain, even Jesse was not confident about it. He admits he didn’t really hate the role but he was skeptical about him, playing it before reading the script.
Hollywood reports, “It’s certainly strange and unnerving to be criticized for a part you haven’t been able to yet screw up,” Jesse expressed during a recent press conference. “I think I would have been surprised had I read I was playing Lex Luthor without having access to this wonderful script and this incredible character written by Chris Terrio, who created a character that I thought, was suitable for me.”
Jesse further stated, “If you look at the canon and the mythology and history of Superman, I might not be the first person that comes to mind, but if you read the script and understood how the character was conceptualized in this modern era and the way he was written, I knew that I could do it well. And at least I hoped after people had seen the movie, they would understand that I was more appropriate than they had originally feared.”
Now, Jesse Eisenberg has high hopes that fans will like him as Lex Luthor, once they watch the film.
Lex Luthor is a powerful American public figure, business tycoon, talented scientist and one of the most intelligent people in the world. This famous character is determined to eliminate the world of alien superhero Superman. It is due to Lex Luthor considers Superman as an obstacle to his selfish plans and also as a threat to human life. The high-ranking super-villain has also come into clash with Batman and other superheroes in the DC Comics.
Celebrity Gossip reports, it is not only the Jesse’s character that has earned fan’s criticism, but also brought many doubts for Ben Affleck’s capability of playing proper Batman onscreen in the “Man of Steel” sequel.
