“Yeah [I’m excited], because I’m friends with Zack,” Eisenberg told Digital Spy. “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.”
He continued, praising Snyder as a director: “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.”
In terms of any future for his part in the DC Universe, Eisenberg said he wasn’t aware of any Justice League sequel plans requiring his involvement yet.
“I don’t even know if they know what they’re doing with the movies, but for me it was exhilarating,” he said. “I would love to play that role forever. I have no knowledge about what they’re doing with it.”
Jesse Eisenberg recently starred in Vivarium opposite Imogen Poots, a domestic confinement thriller. In a four-star review, NME said, “It’s a quite unique cinematic experience – and in a time when all the days blend into one, most will find it highly relatable.”
