Jesse Eisenberg discusses how 'Batman vs. Superman' has impacted his family

According to on Jan. 31, in retrospect Total Film had conducted an interview with Jesse Eisenberg and Richard Ayoade for their film "The Double". During that interview, a "Batman vs. Superman" question had surfaced in regards to taking sides when it came to the two characters in the film. At the time, nothing was known about Eisenberg's talks with Warner Brothers, so it was interesting to hear a conversation about the film given the ability of the studios to do so well in keeping secretive content on the down low.

“I've given it a lot of thought, as has the whole family…my family. Richard Ayoade chimed in, “It’s kind of broken your family apart is the sad thing. My immediate family is fine. It’s the extended family that want speak to us anymore, which I suspect was brewing. This was the straw. In a way, it’s a good thing".

The level of discomfort displayed by Eisenberg was somewhat obvious and touching on the topic seemed to make him nervous. Ironically, when Ayoade had asked the Total Film interviewer who had been cast as Lex Luthor and the reporter responded with bluntly asking Ayoade if he would be interested in playing the villain. All Ayoade had to say was, "You’re assuming I haven’t been contacted".

Eisenberg just laughed and looked away.

Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" will be released in theaters come May 6, 2016.
