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.

    “Constant state of flux.” You LRM writers are hilarious – hoping for the worst for DCEU.

    The reality is, major films have reshoots all the time…That is fairly common. The only thing creating what you deem a “state of flux” would be the family emergency that came about when the film was almost fully completed. Getting an ace CBM director like Whedon to finalize the product is about as “best case scenario” as it gets for a movie of this size (given the unfortunate circumstances).

    What if the move is good/great? Will LRM write a piece on how WW & JL have regained your trust, or are you too far gone to admit when your negative tone towards the DCEU is unnecessary?

    We all want good movies – but the regular bias on this site is ridiculous.

      You’re reading into the reporting. We all want the best, but the truth is we’ve heard from very credible sources regarding the reshoots of this movie. Yes, it’s common to have reshoots, but it’s not common to have months of reshoots with a lot of new content. While we hope for the best, that doesn’t change the fact that the film itself has had a dramatic production process. In regards to us saying WW and JL have regained our trust, they never lost mine. I’ve been a cheerleader for the franchise from day one and have enjoyed each film so far. But don’t confuse my opinion with me reporting news as it happens. I’m not going to NOT report about production troubles just because I want a movie to be good.

        Why not just report that Lex could actually be in movie? That’s the news here, right? There’s always an asterisk with reports on DCEU here…It comes across as biased, when Marvel seems to do no wrong at LRM.

        I really don’t think JL had enough turmoil to be worried about the end product. The plan for this film was in place for years & the final vision is what we will see on film.

        If the reshoots changed the very foundation of what Snyder hoped for, then yes I’d be frustrated. However, from the sounds of it, the reshoots were overall less drastic than being reported. When you’re talking about a monster production like JL, it’s going to take longer than most to film such reshoots.

        The only real problem child from the DCEU when it comes to filming is Flash, which really needs to get a direction finalized.
