Has Jesse Eisenberg Known He Was In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Since October?

Back in October of last year, Jesse Eisenberg and Richard Ayoade were doing interviews for their film The Double. The interview changed into talking about the new Batman Vs. Superman film, because why not focus on their movie when doing interviews about it? Both Ayoade and Eisenberg seem to be screwing with the interview by pretending to not know about it, and then just riffing off each other about the whole topic.

It’s always hard to read Eisenberg, but when the conversation leads to speculation over who the villain is and who will be playing the villain, it gets very interesting. If the news is 100% true over the casting of Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, I think it could be great. Whenever Jeremy Irons is in a mentor like role, he usually kills it (plus he’s dreamy), and Eisenberg can always pull off the autistic super genius with no emotional attachment. He pulls that off in movies, television, real-life, interviews, elementary school, and at drive-thru windows.

Watch the interview here:

He is pretty quiet when asked, but then again he always kind of is. It's funny when the interviewer asked Ayoade if he would be interested in playing Lex Luthor, Jesse just kind of stares at him.
