During a sit down with Vulture, Jesse Eisenberg talked his version of Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Researching the role: “There is this trove of stuff about this guy. A lot of it’s repetitive, like he always winds up on the roof of his building giving some faux benevolent talk about how he’s going to change the city. It’s fun to take that campy cartoony stuff and try to put it into a real person and try to reconcile the two.”
A different vision of Lex Luthor: “This movie is so different … it has real psychological underpinnings, and this movie character feels like a real scary person.”
