While some praised Eisenberg's Lex Luthor as a bold take on the iconic villain, others criticized his performance for going off the rails and reaching levels of goofiness that did not feel right for the character.

Eiesenberg was only in one single scene, where Luthor met with Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke, so presumably when he says "they added some stuff", he's referring to Zack Snyder adding in the post credits scene during the initial production (Snyder shared a photo of himself working on the storyboards for the Deathstroke scene long before his departure). The actor stated he has high hopes to appear in a future Superman movie.

Speaking with Variety in a recent interview, the actor was asked if he would be willing to become Lex Luthor again. I have no idea is the truth. "Probably in terms of movie acting, it's the most enjoyable character I've had the opportunity to play", Eisenberg said.

There were also a lot of rumors floating around that Jesse Eisenberg and Lex Luthor were cut from Justice League, which obviously wasn't the case, and Eisenberg even offers up more of Lex was used than intended. "So I would love to do it again", Eisenberg said. "If you have any pull, please use it".

However, plans for Justice League 2 have now been put on hold since Justice League underwhelmed at the Box Office.

Phillips will direct the new DC and Warner Bros. -made film, Scorsese will act as an executive producer and Joaquin Phoenix is the current favourite to play the titular villain - although Leonardo DiCaprio - a long-time Scorcese collaborator - has also been linked to the famous role. 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.
