We haven’t seen Jesse Eisenberg in any of the Justice League trailers yet, but last December Warner Bros. revealed that he was in the movie in a Justice League press release. The movie has gone through some changes since then, and according to a new report fans may not see him at all when the movie hits theaters this November.
In a recent fan Q&A, Batman on Film was asked how big of a role Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor would have in Justice League. Their reply? “He doesn’t have one. If he did prior to all the changes/reshoots, it was cut.”
This is just a rumor right now, but one that doesn’t seem completely farfetched. Justice League has a lot of characters and with the reshoots adding in new scenes, it’s possible that some older ones will be left on the cutting room floor.
