Jesse Eisenberg Not Sure If He'll Be Back To Play Lex Luthor Plus 'Batman v Superman' Spoiler Podcast With Zack Snyder

**Spoilers ahead** If you’re exhausted talking about “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” well, tough nuggets. Zack Snyder is gearing up to start shooting “Justice League Part 1” on April 11th, so the conversation around ‘Dawn Of Justice’ and what will follow won’t be stopping anytime soon. And while we can count on pretty much all the key figures of ‘BvS’ returning for the two-part mega team-up movie, it looks like one character will be sitting things out: Lex Luthor.

I suppose with Luthor in jail at the end of ‘Batman v Superman’ it makes sense he’s out of the picture, but given his role in setting up the threat that’s coming in “Justice League,” and that the story is spread across two movies, it wouldn’t be entirely out of the question for him to appear again. Maybe in ‘Part 2’? Either way, it doesn’t look like Eisenberg will be part of the crew when ‘Part 1’ starts lensing in a couple of weeks. And as you’ll see from the Instagram post below, LexCorp has shut down.
