Cape Breton Post - - ARTS / ENTERTAINMENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Jesse Eisen­berg’s Comic-Con ex­pe­ri­ence ap­par­ently wasn’t a joy. Eisen­berg, who plays Lex Luthor in the up­com­ing “Bat­man v. Su­per­man, “was at the mas­sive San Diego con­ven­tion last week with co-stars Ben Af­fleck and Henry Cav­ill. In an in­ter­view Mon­day, he was de­cid­edly neg­a­tive about the ex­pe­ri­ence. “It is like be­ing screamed at by thou­sands of peo­ple. I don’t know what the ex­pe­ri­ence is through­out history, prob­a­bly some kind of geno­cide. I can’t think of any­thing that’s equiv­a­lent,” he said. Eisen­berg spoke at the pre­miere of “The End of the Tour,” with Jason Se­gal, about the re­lease of David Foster Wal­lace’s novel “In­fi­nite Jest.” Se­gal plays Wal­lace, while Eisen­berg plays jour­nal­ist David Lip­sky. “Yes I have never been on the other side, on your side of jour­nal­ism. I have nor­mally been the vic­tim so I worked with the guy who I play, I play a real per­son, David Lip­sky,” he said. “I in­ter­viewed him. He taught me how to in­ter­view and what his process is like and now I un­der­stand the pari­ahs that you guys are.” The As­so­ci­ated Press
