Jesse Eisenberg Discusses Lex Luthor’s Plan In Batman V Superman


In an interview with IGN, Jesse Eisenberg provided some insight into his take on Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, including his plan to create Doomsday.

He said: “I think Lex becomes increasingly unhinged throughout the movie. I also think he’s a guy who has 40 back-up plans and so when one thing doesn’t work out he has another and if that doesn’t work out he has another, which is why I think he never feels that threatened by Superman and Batman because he knows he always has the leverage and his final act, in my opinion; and this is now thinking back a year-and-a-half – was this kind of like last-ditch effort to leave it all on the table.”
