SDCC: Jesse Eisenberg Clarifies "Genocide"-Comic-Con Comparison

After comparing Comic-Con International to genocide, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" star Jesse Eisenberg -- who plays Lex Luthor in the film -- clarified that he was being hyperbolic in his description of the convention.

"Maybe on some cellular memory level, that's the only thing that seems like an equivalent social experience," he told the Associated Press. "Even if they're saying nice things, just being shouted at by thousands of people, it's horrifying."

"I of course was using hyperbole to describe the sensory overload I experienced. I sometimes do employ that. I'm a normal person who has normal sensory experiences, so Comic-Con was very overwhelming for me. That said, it was really an honor to be on that end of such jubilation... That people are excited about it in that way is unheard of and thrilling," he added.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is scheduled to open on March 25, 2016.
