SDCC 2015: Jesse Eisenberg Confirms Dawn Of Justice Panel Presence


Collider recently sat down with Jesse Eisenberg to talk about the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Eisenberg, who’s playing the film’s main villain, Lex Luthor, confirmed that he’ll be at Comic-Con International 2015 in the famed Hall H.  On top of that, Eisenberg said that he’ll also be on stage for … wait for it … an hour!

Eisenberg goes on to share with the interviewer his admiration for Dawn of Justice scribe Chris Terrio:

"I like what this writer does, this guy Chris Terrio. He wrote this movie we did and I just think he’s so great. He’s such a good writer. I like what he does with characters, I like what he does with wordplay and cleverness. I like anything he writes."

Excitement for the film has been building ever since its announcement, and WB/DC is going all out this year to make a big splash at Comic-Con International.  Last year, director Zack Snyder introduced the actors portraying DC’s famed trinity — Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot, who will be playing Clark Kent / Superman, Bruce Wayne / Batman, and Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, respectively.  Snyder then revealed a quick scene that showed an impending showdown between the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight.

Since the Dawn of Justice panel will be presenting for an hour or more this year, it’s safe to say that the cast and crew will be revealing some dramatic stuff for fans.  Come back to Bam Smack Pow and we’ll give you the latest breaking news on this exciting event!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has a United States release date of March 25, 2016.  It will be directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio from a story by David Goyer and Zack Snyder, and will star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent / Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves, Holly Hunter as a United States Senator, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone / Cyborg, and Callan Mulvey, Scoot McNairy, and Jena Malone in unspecified roles.
