He delivered a “deliciously wicked” version of Superman’s more famous rival in Dawn of Justice and apparently he’s returning for more.


Jesse Eisenberg talked to MCM London Comic Con attendees about stepping back into the role of Lex Luthor for the first Justice League movie, telling them he’s just waiting for the official call.

“I’m kind of in wait.”

– Jesse Eisenberg

“They just started filming Justice League, so I’m kind of like waiting for my crack at it.”


He continued, saying he didn’t want to say anything further but stressed that he loved the role and working with a “talented group of people”.

If Jesse Eisenberg does reprise the role of Lex Luthor for the movie, will that mean there won’t be another solo Superman movie?

Also returning for Justice League Part One are Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman).

They’ll be joined by Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Victor Stone (Cyborg).

What did you think of Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor?
