<span style="color:#FF0000">UPDATE:</span style="color:#FF0000"> Jesse Eisenberg Briefly Talks Playing 'Lex Luthor' In BATMAN VS...SPIDER-MAN?

The actor dropped by the Today Show to chat about his new movie The Double, but also spoke briefly about playing the iconic villain in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel sequel..in which he'll be going up against Batman and our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man apparently.

Are Marvel and DC planning a crossover?? Not quite. Jesse Eisenberg is quizzed about playing Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's follow up to Man Of Steel on Today, which one of the hosts mistakenly refers to as "Batman VS, Spider-Man". just a slip of the tongue no doubt, and although Eisenberg doesn't correct her, his face is priceless. But more importantly, what does he reveal about the role? Well, predictably, not much! "It's an interesting character. The movie is really good," he offers. "But yeah, if I say anything beyond that, somebody will probably descend from the ceiling."

UPDATE: Eisenberg also spoke to The Schmoes Know Podcast about playing Lex, and one again he didn't spill too much unfortunately. But, he did tell the lads that he was "very impressed with the script, saying it was a GREAT script; which ultimately led to him taking on the iconic role." Also, he reveals that he will begin shooting his scenes exactly one month from now.
