Jesse Eisenberg Talks Lex Luthor Role

The sequel to the "Man of Steel" has started giving fans multiple updates this week on the movie.  The latest update so far is the role that Jesse Eisenberg will be playing as Superman's arch nemesis Lex Luther. 

After Jesse Eisenberg was cast in the role back in January, there have been few — if any — updates regarding the diabolical genius who challenges Superman at every opportunity, but a recent interview with Eisenberg offers a sliver of insight into how he’s approaching the character.

"I don’t know the history as well as the people making the movie, so I guess it’s up to them to figure out how much they want to separate it from previous incarnations,” Eisenberg told IGN when asked how different his version of Lex Luthor will be from the previous iterations played by Gene Hackman and Kevin Spacey.

Still, Eisenberg insisted that he’s approaching the role as a character independent of its past.

“There’s no way to play the history of the character played by other people, unless you do some kind of wink, but that doesn’t seem like a responsible way to act,” he explained. “So I will just do it as though it’s a character, in the same way you do a movie like The Double, which is a smaller movie — but you just kind of treat it like a character, and that’s probably the best course of action, I think.”

The question on everyone's mind is if Eisenberg will sport the iconic bald look that fans have come to know from the villains character.  When asked about it Eisenberg said he couldn't reveal any details on that aspect of his role.

"I'm not allowed to say anything, because of their privacy," he said.

The last time we saw Luthor on screen was in the 2006 adaptation, "Superman Returns," where Kevin Spacey played the role.

The new movie has been getting a lot of buzz lately due to the fact Director Snyder released a photo of the new Batmobile earlier this week with Ben Affleck standing next to it suited up as Batman.  More details about the movie have slowly started being leaked to the public over the following days to build hype for the big budget Superhero movie.

The sequel to "Man of Steel" is directed by Zack Snyder and is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.  The film also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne.
