An earlier report from Latino-Review tipped Eisenberg's Luthor as a tattooed skinhead ex-street punk with a back story that includes a promotion to street gang boss at just 15 years old. Regardless of his appearance, Eisenberg recently told Total Film that the role has presented him with a challenge he seems excited to take on.
'There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own,' Eisenberg says. 'I got to know one of the writers Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I've been asked to play an interesting role. A complicated, challenging person.'
'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice' will star Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Eisenberg. Supporting actors that have joined the cast include Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Holly Hunter, Tao Okamoto, Scoot McNairy and Callan Mulvey. The film is scheduled to hit theaters in March 2016.
