Jesse Eisenberg Comic-Con Issues


Since both Marvel and DC comic book adaptations have become so popular, the San Diego Comic-Con has become something of a second Oscars, only without the Oscars. Thousands upon thousands gather to meet various celebs and pay tribute to their favorite characters and franchises.

However, not everyone has a splendid time at Comic-Con. One of those people is Jesse Eisenberg, who just got back from the event after promoting the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and his villainous role of Lex Luthor.

During his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor said: “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.”

Talk about a terrible choice of words. The English dictionary describes genocide as “the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.” No matter how chaotic it can get, many believe that nobody in their right mind could compare this to Comic-Con.

Although Eisenberg was a part of the Hall H panel, which can fit around 6,500 people, it doesn’t seem like he has a valid reason to label Comic-Con as a form of genocide. Perhaps he was trying to make a joke, but you can be sure Zack Snyder and DC representatives won’t be jumping for joy.
