Jesse Eisenberg stays away from social media since being cast as Lex Luthor

According to ComicBook.com on Saturday, "Batman vs. Superman's" Jesse Eisenberg is staying away from social media sites. Ever since being cast as Lex Luthor for the film, he's made it a point to avoid online movie news. In fact, he's always done so considering most of what he read about himself wasn't very nice. If he happens along a piece of news, it's usually by accident.

He did talk about how nice it was to find something positive to read about himself on occasion and take it as truth, but with all the criticism that's out there about himself as well as any other celebrity, he can't help but believe what was said about him when it comes to criticism. Of course, the nature of the online environment is littered with those who have no problem saying bad things about anyone behind a computer screen. Considering that celebrities are known to be in the "public eye" it makes them even bigger targets of ridicule.

During his YouTube interview with "The Schmoes Know Movie Show", Eisenberg mentioned something about the "Batman vs. Superman" script and how great it is, but as of now he still has a month before he works with Snyder on the film. Other than it "being great", he couldn't say anything else and said he thinks they all want it to be a surprise. He currently busy working on a project now.

Currently, director Snyder, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot were spotted filming in Birmingham, Mich. Police officers had blocked off areas between Bate and Old Woodward for the filming and a helicopter had made a fly over conducting ariel shots. Also, Twitter user Michael Heidner posted some photos of Gal Gadot all in blue just outside of his work place. There was also cast party in the area as well when actors were taking some leisure time.

"Batman vs. Superman" opens in theaters come May 6, 2016.
