Comic Con Is On Par With Genocide, According To Jesse Eisenberg | Jesse Eisenberg

Lex Luthor elect, Jesse Eisenberg, appears to have been flexing his villainous muscles today, having compared Comic-Con to Genocide in an interview during the press junket for his upcoming indie flick, The End Of The Tour. 

Of his time at Comic-Con, Eisenberg had the following less-than-kind, and vastly over-the-top comments to make:

It's 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.

Really Jesse... nothing at all? Naturally, the reaction has not been kind to Eisenberg's off-the-cuff remark.

It's not the first time Eisenberg has courted controversy, being called out as a "jerk" after some bizarre (read: rude) behaviour whilst being interviewed for his 2013 movie Now You See Me. His biggest crime of Comic-Con up to this point was, of course, appearing in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as Lex Luthor with a full head of hair, but it seems he wanted to massively out do himself.

So is this chalked down to a misguided slip, or does Eisenberg have some explaining to do? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
