AAP WARNER Bros says Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor in the studio's planned Superman-Batman film. The casting of the 30-year-old Eisenberg was met with a wave of surprise on social media on Friday. Eisenberg is a widely respected actor, but isn't known for the kind of villainous gravitas that Gene Hackman brought to the role. The Superman-Batman film is to be directed by Zac Snyder.
