Jesse Eisenberg has confirmed that he’ll be reprising his role as Lex Luthor in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Justice League movie.
Eisenberg revealed the news in an interview with ShortList:
“It was the most fun I’ve ever had at playing a role, and most challenging, in a great way, and most rewarding. [I’d] love to play it for years. I certainly hope he stays alive throughout the next few films.”
Production on Justice League has already begun with Eisenberg set to film his scenes in August.

“We’re only ever planning and we are only doing Justice League, just Justice League. One movie.” said producer, Deborah Snyder.
In what was a busy day for news regarding the film, we were also treated to a synopsis and logo:
And we can see Eisenberg return as the villain when Justice League hits screens in November 2017.
