Jesse Eisenberg Builds Up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as ‘Really Phenomenal’

Eisenberg calls Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice “well-acted… written… directed”

In this day and age, no one wants to be the actor that gave away something big about an upcoming superhero movie, especially not that their character might have flippers for hands. Dancing around specifics, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice co-star Jesse Eisenberg stopped by “The Today Show” late last week to talk about the upcoming film and managed to hype it up even more.

“It’s just the most incredible character. It was written by this guy Chris Terrio, this is his next movie after Argo, who is just this brilliant writer of characters. So this movie is not a cartoonish superhero movie, it’s this very serious, well-acted, well-written, well-directed movie. It’s really phenomenal.”

In other DC news, Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, appeared at Fan Expo Canada where he doubled down on how serious these films will be and that we won’t be laughing at the character after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“I can’t see my busting out a bunch of jokes, I don’t think it will be like that….(The jokes) are cute and funny, there’s a bunch of jokes about him and it’s like, let’s wait. Let’s just wait a little bit and then we can make jokes.”

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.

Directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, the film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016.
