TDKR's Anne Hathaway Has Some Advice For Our New 'Lex Luthor'

"Don’t be afraid to make it your own." Hathway, who played Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, offers some advice to her Rio 2 costar Jesse Eisenberg on bringing an iconic comic book character to life on the big screen.

Jesse Eisenberg being picked to play Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's sequel to Man Of Steel has to go down as one of the most controversial casting choices in recent memory. Though a few fans have since warmed to the idea, backlash is still pretty rampant on many forums. But -- as Anne Hathaway points out in the following video interview with Total Film -- he WAS cast for a reason. Here's what the former Selina Kyle/Catwoman had to say when asked what advice she'd give to Eisenberg after taking on such a huge CBM role.


“I wish I could say something, but it’s going to be his experience. Keep a journal, which I’m sure he does some version of that already, just to remember it. Don’t be afraid to make it your own. In my case, people criticized, criticized, criticized until they saw it, and then a lot of people liked what I did. Don’t listen to anyone, do your thing. They cast you for a reason. I think he’ll be remarkable, I’m excited to see it.”
