Evil comes in many different shapes and sizes…and hairdos. And now evil is confirmed to be coming to The Justice League Part One in the form of Lex Luthor and his chrome dome.
While at MCM London Comic Con, Jesse Eisenberg revealed that he”ll reprise his role as Luthor in the upcoming superhero ensemble movie, this according to Digital Spy.
“I'm kind of in wait,” he said. “They just started filming Justice League, so I'm kind of like waiting for my crack at it.”
As for what he”ll be doing in the movie, Eisenberg was coy. He said, ”I don't know what I'm allowed to say, because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off.”
Eisenberg made his debut as Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has been a mixed bag for Warner Bros and DC, drawing an underwhelming $871 million at the box office, and it resulted in a shake up at DC Films.
Justice League will also feature Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams and Jason Momoa. The Zack Snyder-directed flick is slated for release in November 2017.
