Jesse Eisenberg talks Batman vs Superman

Exclusive: Man of Steel 2's Lex Luthor on his favourite character

Ever since Batman vs Superman / Man of Steel 2 was announced, we've been asking every star we've met about the movie - primarily, which character is their favourite.

Little did we know that when we interviewed Jesse Eisenberg and Richard Ayoade for their Dostoyevsky comedy-drama-thriller The Double way back in October 2013, that it would be Jesse Eisenberg's first recorded word on the movie that he'll now play a pivotal part in (as Lex Luthor, in case you missed that box office-shaking news).

And while Ayoade and Eisenberg feign ignorance in their typically hilarious sarcastic way throughout, is it just us or could you totally read into the video that Eisenberg knew he was in the running all along? 

Watch it and let us know what you think below!

The Double is in UK cinemas from 4 April 2014.

Oh, and for other celebrities talking about their favourite character, just watch the video below!
