Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor to Battle Superman, Crippling Social Anxiety

Today, director Zack Snyder announced that Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor in the upcoming film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which he will battle the iconic superheroes as well as his own endearing yet paralyzing awkwardness.

“Imagine Lex Luthor as the quirky, misunderstood loner who you’ve always imagined him to be,” said Snyder. “He’s a little obsessive-compulsive, but deep down he’s just looking for love. And he wants to blow up Metropolis.”
