Why Jesse Eisenberg Isn’t Officially a Part of the Snyder Cut Movement

There’s a reason why Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Jesse Eisenberg hasn’t made any public remarks about the Snyder Cut version of Justice League in the way Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, and others have. It turns out, he hasn’t even watched the regular theatrical version of Justice League.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun this week, Eisenberg explained that he wasn’t sure how to weigh in on the Snyder Cut because “I don’t watch anything I’ve been in, and I haven’t seen either Batman v Superman or Justice League.”

“I know that I had a smaller part in one of them,” he added, “but I get pretty uncomfortable watching myself. So I’m not aware of a Snyder Cut.”

“I’m not part of, I don’t even know what to call it: the movement,” Eisenberg added. “I like Zack Snyder and I worked with him for a while just by virtue of these movies taking so long to film. I love his style and aesthetic and if there’s a movie he wanted to see released, I’m sure it would be great.”

Meanwhile, Zack Snyder recently joined a growing list of filmmakers and artists who have taken to social media to help entertain fans during the pandemic. Snyder marked the fourth anniversary of the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice by releasing a new director’s commentary track for the Ultimate Cut of the DC movie, revealing new tidbits about Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, and more.
