In a recent interview with Total Film, our soon to be Lex Luthor had nothing but praise for the upcoming Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice film.

“There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own. I got to know one of the writers Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I’ve been asked to play an interesting role. A complicated, challenging person. They asked me if I would play the part before they sent me the script,” he admitted. “I’m not sure how it worked, but it’s something I read with the understanding that I could do the role, if I…you know, they don’t just hand the scripts out. But I really liked it on its own terms. I would do it if it was for free and it was tiny.”

By now, we’ve gotten a look at the Batsuit, Wonderwoman’s costume, and even a teaser trailer at Comic-Con for Batman V. Superman. The movie LOOKS (in pure aesthetics) awesome. The only thing needed now for the film to be a success is a good script, therefore its reassuring to hear an actor say a film is so good he’d do it for free.

How excited are you for the film? Does Jesse Eisenberg’s conviction about the quality of the script convince you?
