It looks as if actor Jesse Eisenberg has confirmed he will reprise his role as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Justice League movie. Fans were wondering wether or not Eisenberg would be returning as the villain in Justice League Part One next year, but speaking at MCM comic-con in London the actor said he was just waiting on the call.

“I’m kind of in wait,” the Radio Times reports Eisenberg as telling the crowd. “They just started filming Justice League, so I’m kind of like waiting for my crack at it.” However the actor did admit he wasn't sure how much he could reveal.

"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,” he continued. “But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who’s in it. You know, it’s a really talented group of people.”

Eisenberg’s performance in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice divided both the critics and the fans, but the actor says he was trying to humanise the villain with his portrayal.

“What I wanted to do with the character is kind of what I want to do in this play, which is I want to humanise these people that you have seen dehumanised,” he explained.

“I wanted to make these people real and relatable, interesting and engaging, and not just, you know, a kind of surface ‘bad person’. To me, the most interesting acting is when actors can bring you in to another side of the person.”

"When you feel like you are not seeing the purpose of them for the plot. That they’re not just delivering a message, that they’re actually showing you some kind of humanity. That’s what I tried to do with that character.”

“Whether or not I succeeded or failed depends on your subjective opinion about what you think about people like that. That’s my goal as an actor,” he added. Eisenberg was appearing at the convention to promote his new West End play The Spoils, alongside co-star Kunal Nayyar.
