Jesse Eisenberg received the opportunity of a lifetime when he was cast to play Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While his casting caused consternation among the fandom (what didn’t it?), it presented an opportunity for him to have his name written in Superman lore forever. However, being part of such a large tallpole comes with certain marketing responsibilities, such as promoting the film at Comic-Con.
Speaking to the Associated Press about the convention experience, Eisenberg made some eyebrow-raising comments. “It’s like being yelled at by thousands of people,” he said. “I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything quite like it.” Eisenberg later clarified his comments, saying he intentionally exaggerated to describe how surprised he was by all the people at the event, but was still grateful for the support of the fans.
Despite Eisenberg’s explanation, the visceral metaphor rubbed fans the wrong way. Since his version of Lex Luthor has entered the Warner Bros. vault of things never to be seen again alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman and Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah’s Batgirl film, he may not have to deal with big ones in the future deal with scams.
