LONDON, May 31 (UPI) -- Jesse Eisenberg is eager to return as the villainous Lex Luthor and thinks he may reappear as the character in Warner Bros. upcoming superhero epic, Justice League: Part One.
"I don't know. I am in wait, they just started filming Justice League so I'm kind of waiting for my crack at it," Eisenberg responded when asked what's next for Lex Luthor while speaking at a panel at the MCM Comic Con Sunday in London.
"I don't even know what I'm allowed to say because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC [Comics] and if I say anything wrong I get, you know picked off," he continued about the studio's secrecy surrounding the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sequel.
"But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who's in it. You know, it's a really talented group of people," Eisenberg continued.
Justice League, set to be directed by Zack Snyder, will feature Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and possibly other heroes, teaming up for the first time when it hits theaters November 10, 2017.
The ensemble film has also added Willem Dafoe in an unspecified role, J.K. Simmons as Batman's trusted ally Commissioner Gordon, and Amber Heard as Aquaman's love interest, undersea queen Mera.
