Eisenberg Says "Batman V Superman" Is Not A "Cartoonish" Superhero Film

Jesse Eisenberg does not mince words, as superhero fans learned right after his appearance at Comic-Con International this year. So when the straight-shooting Eisenberg doles out praise for Warner Bros.' "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," you're inclined to believe him.

The actor, who plays Lex Luthor in the Zack Snyder-directed film, appeared on NBC's "Today Show" and chatted briefly about the film, offering up a lot of praise for the 2016 superhero film.

"Yes, it is like the most incredible character," Jesse said of Luthor. "It was written by this guy, Chris Terrio -- this is like his first movie after 'Argo.' He's just this brilliant writer of characters. So this movie is, you know, it's not like a kind of cartoonish superhero movie. It's this very serious and well acted, well written, well directed movie. It's really phenomenal."
