Anne Hathaway is currently on a press tour for “Rio 2,” in which she co-stars with Jessie Eisenberg, who will play Lex Luthor in “Batman vs. Superman.” Hathaway has some superhero movie experience from her role as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” As such, Total Film asked her if she had any advice for Eisenberg on his big, superhero film debut.
“You know, I wish I could say something, but it’s going to be his experience,” Hathaway said. “I’d just say keep a journal, which I’m sure he does some version of that already, just to remember it, and don’t be afraid to make it your own. In my case, people criticized me, criticized the casting, until they saw it, and then a lot of people liked what I did and so, just don’t listen to anybody else. Just do your thing, they cast you for a reason.”
When asked if she thought Eisenberg would make a good Luthor, Hathaway said “I think he’s going to be remarkable. I’m really excited to see it.”
“Batman vs. Superman” is scheduled for theatrical release on May 6, 2016.
