Jesse Eisenberg may be an evil mastermind on camera – and no, we’re not talking about Social Network, but apparently in real life he’s playing the role of nice guy to a T.
The actor, who plays Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, stopped by Midtown Comics in New York today to sign some comic books – all heavily featuring Lex, of course.

The store’s official twitter account tweeted out an image of him holding some of the comics he signed, and said they’ll be giving them away next week to a lucky winner – so give them a follow if you’re interested. How trippy was it for fans to see Lex Luthor in their comic shop? Well, maybe that’s why he stopped in on a Tuesday, instead of the busy Wednesday comic release day.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25, 2016. The actor was also in the store, naturally, to promote the film. An interview was shot there, apparently in conjunction with Omaze, the charity that frequently works with Hollywood on charity auctions and contests, so there’s probably something coming up there.

With about two and a half months to go, his promotional tour hasn’t kicked into full gear yet. But being a New Yorker, there’s always a chance for fans to see him out and about, even at their favorite comic book shop.
