A day after comparing his Comic-Con experience to genocide, actor Jesse Eisenberg clarified his comment Tuesday saying that he was being hyperbolic. Eisenberg was at the convention last weekend to promote his upcoming movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
In an earlier interview with the Associated Press (AP) on Monday, the 31-year-old actor said that the convention in San Diego was "terrifying" and overwhelming. “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.
However, he reviewed his statement on Tuesday. “I of course was using hyperbole to describe the sensory overload I experienced. I sometimes do employ that. … I’m a normal person who has normal sensory experiences, so Comic-Con was very overwhelming for me,” he told the AP. “The Social Network” star, who will play Lex Luthor in the superhero movie, added: "It was really an honor to be on that end of such jubilation.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, “Batman v Superman,” slated to release in March 2016, will see actor Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
