“His motivations are multifaceted; he has a way of using language that’s specific to the way his mind works; he struggles with interesting philosophical dilemmas like that of the individual having too much power, even if that individual is using that power for good,” Eisenberg said.
The character has been portrayed by the likes of Gene Hackman (1978’s Superman), Michael Rosenbaum (the WB/CW series Smallville), and Kevin Spacey (2006’s Superman Returns).
The “Social Network” actor said the films made in past were good but it is difficult to relate to them.
“The previous movies are interesting to watch, but they feel unrelated. This incarnation of the character is drawn so differently. I’d read the comic books, but I figured out pretty quickly there’s not much there that relates to an acting role; it’s just a different format,” he said.
