by  in Movie News Comment

If you’re worried about the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel, this new trailer might ease your fears a bit. Eisenberg plays two parts in Richard Ayoade’s next film The Double, one as meek Simon James and the other as the identical, brash James Simon. Neither role necessarily equates to Superman’s greatest foe in a direct sense, but they show off a few more facets of his acting ability.

Debuting May 9, The Double also stars Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn and Ayoade’s IT Crowd co-star Chris O’Dowd.
