Jesse Eisenberg described his character 'Lex luthor' in the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as a "complicated and challenging person".
The Social Network star said that it was an interesting role and as he got to knew one of the writers really well, Chris Terrio, they were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person was, so as to create a real psychology behind what was, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology, the Hollywood Reporter reported.
He further added that he realized how popular comic-book movies are, and now, working on one, he realized why they're popular; because the story, dialogues, artistry behind every department and acting was high and really good.
The 30-year-old actor also spilled the beans that he expressed interest in playing Superman's nemesis before even reading a script for the movie.
Despite his success to date, Eisenberg said that he was prepared for Lex to propel him into another level of stardom.
