Jesse Eisenberg looks set for Justice League film

Updated: 

Jesse Eisenberg has hinted that he will reprise the role of Lex Luthor in the Justice League movie.

The American actor protrayed the baddie in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice this year, and there have been rumours that the character will be back.

According to Vulture, Jesse spilled the beans while he was at MCM London Comic-Con.

He said: "I'm kind of in wait. They just started filming Justice League, so I'm kind of like waiting for my crack at it.

"I don't know what I'm allowed to say, because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off. But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who's in it."

Justice League Part One - directed by Zack Snyder - stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa as Aquaman.

The movie will be unveiled in 2017.
