Anne Hathaway imparts Batman advice to Jesse Eisenberg

In case you somehow missed the internet fanboy/girl explosion, Zack Snyder revealed that Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor in the new Man of Steel 2 / Batman vs Superman movie.

And while there have been a fair few online detractors, there's at least one person championing his corner - and it's someone who has superheroic, Batman-related form.

We chatted to Anne Hathaway (Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises ) during promotion for Rio 2 , and she had a few words of encouragement and sage wisdom for Eisenberg as he embarks on his most mainstream blockbuster-y role to date.

Rio 2 hits UK cinemas from 4 April 2014.
