To clarify his remarks, Eisenberg told Associated Press the next day that the comment matches fans’ assumptions of villain Lex Luthor. “They expect me to use hyperbole!” he said.
Eisenberg explained to AP: “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. That said, it was really an honor to be on that end of such jubilation.”
