Jesse Eisenberg says no Lex Luthor scenes were cut from 'Justice League'

Jesse Eisenberg wants to reprise his role as Lex Luther

The actor also spoke about the controversial Justice League reshoot rumors and clarified that, while there were speculations that his role was chopped down, he did not have a bigger role in the movie.

Last we saw of Lex Luthor was in the Justice League post-credit scene (watch below) with Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, which was hinting at the set up of the Legion of Doom.

Speaking to Variety in a recent interview, he was asked whether he'll be returning to the franchise via the aforementioned sequel or perhaps in another film, and while he obviously couldn't say anything concrete, he did state that he'd love to play Lex again.

Despite scriptwriter Joss Whedon leaving Batgirl and director Zack Snyder's reported firing from the franchise, Eisenberg was still up for being a part of the studio's ongoing plans. I was in it after the credits. No.

Ivan Rakitic: 'I'd welcome Neymar return to Barcelona'
United welcome Sevilla to Manchester following a goalless draw in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie. The Neymar issue is more important than ever and a major source of vexation for Doha, being their prized player.

I'm not sure what Eisenberg means by "they added some stuff". "I love playing the character", Eisenberg said. "Probably in terms of movie acting, it's the most enjoyable character I've had the opportunity to play", Eisenberg said. Do you hope to see him again in a future movie?

He did add though that "but I don't know what their slate is".

However, plans for Justice League 2 have now been put on hold since Justice League underwhelmed at the Box Office. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Should Warner Bros. ultimately move forward with plans to make a direct sequel to "Man of Steel", Eisenberg would nearly certainly appear on screen again as Lex although the primary villain would most likely be Brainiac or even possibly Darkseid.
