Kevin Spacey has said that he thinks Jesse Eisenberg will be a great Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman V Superman movie.

The House of Cards star told Empire, "First of all, I think [Eisenberg] is a remarkable actor. He's just going to f***ing own it. I think it's a great idea and I wish him the best with it."

Eisenberg will play the villainous Luthor alongside Henry Cavill's Superman, Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Godot's Wonder Woman in the currently untitled Man Of Steel sequel, which is set for release in May 2016.
