Jesse Eisenberg Confirms He's Returning for Justice League
After a long period of uncertainty, Jesse Eisenberg has finally opened up on whether or not he'll return to the DCEU for Zack Snyder's Justice League. While Eisenberg's Lex Luthor received much of the same 'love it or hate it' reaction that the rest of BatmanSuperman was subjected to, a Justice League movie simply wouldn't be the same without the famous DC Comics villain, so it's a relief to hear that he's returning to reprise his role in next year's big DC Comics production. 

Opening quote
"They are filming (Justice League) now, and I jump in from August," Eisenberg told ShortList. "I loved the character and it was the most fun I've ever had at playing a role, and most challenging, in a great way, and most rewarding. I would love to play it for years. The character I play is so unusual and complicated. As an actor he's everything you'd want to do. It's very exciting for me to play that role.

Justice League is currently filming at Warner Bros.' studio base in London, and just a few miles down the road Eisenberg is also at work, but on a very different project. For the last few weeks, Eisenberg has been treading the boards in London's West End starring alongside Game of Thrones' Alfie Alan and The Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar in 'The Spoils', a comedic production written by the actor himself. After rave reviews, the play's run finishes in mid-August, and it's likely Eisenberg will immediately travel up the road to start work alongside his Justice League co-stars, which is a task the actor goes on to reveal he absolutely relishes.

Opening quote
"And, secondarily, it's interesting to be in these massive, high-profile movies, because all the stuff around you as an actor is really good. All the artists are really great, so you walk on to a set and it's the most-detailed, comprehensive set, and as an actor it really fills in your imagination in a special way. You're also acting with incredible actors. In the last movie I had lots of scenes with Holly Hunter, who has been one of my favorite actors since I was young. This all exists because this movie is so massive that they attract so many talented people, even in smaller positions. It was really special to me. The most exciting part was to play such an interesting character and I certainly hope he stays alive throughout the next few films."
