Is it possible that Jesse Eisenberg is still in the upcoming Justice League film? It’s difficult to say at this point. This past month, Batman-News stated that one of their sources had seen a cut of Justice League, and that the film did not include Jesse Eisbenberg’s Lex Luthor.
This wasn’t too big of a surprise to fans. The film was reportedly in a constant state of flux, with rumored extensive reshoots, and with a new director at the helm with Joss Whedon, he may have very well found some scenes that simply didn’t push the overall narrative forward. One of those scenes could very well have been a Lex Luthor scene.
But it may be too early to tell yet. The folks over at ComicBook.com have noticed that the official UK Warner Bros. site still has Jesse Eisenberg’s name on the cast list. So what does this mean?
Well, it could mean a couple things. One, it could mean that Lex is back in the current cut in the film. Two, it could mean that the folks at Warner Bros. aren’t keeping up with the different cuts of the film, and have yet to update the site.
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what ends up happening with Lex. Luckily, we don’t have too long to wait.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
