The hype around "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hardly includes Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor. The actor has a small detail about the movie villain, simply describing him as "a complicated, challenging person."
"There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own," Eisenberg tells Total Film Magazine. "I got to know one of the writers really well, Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I've been asked to play an interesting role: a complicated, challenging person."
He had interest in the character long before seeing the script. "They asked me if I wanted to play the part before they sent me the script. You know, they don't just hand the scripts out," Eisenberg explains. On what he thinks the whole production do, the 30-year-old says, "I realize how popular comic-book movies are, and now, working on one, I realize why they're popular - the story is really good, the dialogue is really good, the artistry behind every department is high, the acting is really good."
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is scheduled for release in the United States on March 25, 2016 in 3D. Henry Cavill reprises his role as Superman while Ben Affleck takes over the Batman role from "The Dark Knight" star Christian Bale.
