Batman v Superman: Lex Luthor a ‘Real Scary Person’


Even though it’s become glaringly obvious that Jesse Eisenberg doesn’t understand Geek Culture at all, he’s made strides to make audiences understand that he actually likes playing Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman.

In a recent interview with Vulture, Eisenberg talked more about the character and seemed to discover for the first time things we all already no about it.

"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.…this movie is so different … it has real psychological underpinnings, and this movie character feels like a real scary person."

*sigh*. Someone give this guy the right comics to read for Denny’s sake.
