“I can’t think of any other precedent in history where there was something of this scope”. He says of the four-hour #SnyderCut.
Justice League star Jesse Eisenberg has reacted to the news that the film’s mythic Snyder Cut will finally be released.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that HBO Max will stream original Justice League director Zack Snyder’s cut of the movie next year, following a huge #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign.
And it seems Eisenberg–whose latest film Résistance was released on streaming platforms in March–is thrilled for Snyder.
The Lex Luthor actor had a relatively small role in the theatrical version of Justice League (appearing only in the post-credits scene), after playing a much bigger part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
But speaking exclusively to Digital Spy following the announcement, Jesse said that he was “so happy” for his friend Snyder to have his “very, very specific vision” out there.
“I spoke to Zack a couple of weeks ago and he told me about it,” Jesse said.
“Yeah [I’m excited], because I’m friends with Zack. I’m so happy for him that he gets to release something he’s proud of.
“I mean, I can’t think of any other precedent in history where there was something of this scope. Because it’s not just about releasing the movie, but it required all of this… we call it post-production.
“So it’s not just they’re releasing scenes that are finished, they had to do a lot of post-production and it’s such a big process.
“And yeah, I’m so happy for him. He’s a great guy with a very, very specific vision and so, yes, I’m happy that he gets that. And he seemed really happy.”
Eisenberg previously declared that he would love to return as Lex Luthor in a future movie but admitted he doesn’t know what DC’s plans are.
“I don’t even know if they know what they’re doing with the movies. But for me it was exhilarating,” he said of the part.
“I would love to play that role forever. I have no knowledge about what they’re doing with it.”
