Eisenberg was one of the worst casting decisions in any movie ever. It's worse than Topher Grace as Venom.

Voted Schwarzenegger because while the campiness is fun to laugh about today, it doesn't change that the acting was flat-out terrible.

Leto might have been nuts but at least he made some stylistic choice. I have no idea what Eisenberg was doing. When people walked out of the theater, they were like, "oh, I think maybe he was actually supposed to be Lex Luthor's son." The performance was so horrifying that their brains couldn't accept it. I don't remember anyone walking out of Suicide Squad saying, "I think he was actually supposed to be the Joker's brother."

I thought Eisenberg did fine, it's just we have so many better Luthors out there his best performances feels worse. I don't really want to dump on Leto for a movie he was barely in. Who played Stepenwolf? For a villain that was supposed to unite the greats he came off the most boring villain since Nuclear man in Superman 4.

Then you could really get into the dregs.

Shaq in Steel (nice physical match, but he could never act.)
Anyone in Catwoman.
Mostly anyone in Jonah Hex (I thought Hex himself wasn't bad)

Someone said that Jared Leto's Joker comes across as an obsessed fan of the Joker rather than the Joker himself. I concur.

Jesse Eisenberg comes across as someone who never liked Lex Luthor, never heard of Lex Luthors, and only agreed to use the name Lex Luthor to grab a paycheck. No character has missed the mark by quite so much. This is like going to an archery tournament and shooting one of the judges who is in the opposite direction of the targets.

Leto has at least a decent moment or two. The same can't be said for Eisenberg.

That might have been decent. Sure, it's a Batman foe, but it was pretty much a Batman movie anyway.

Eisenberg and Leto.

Eisenberg felt like he was playing a different character each time, like Riddler, Penguin, Joker, etc.

Are people voting Leto because they like the Joker more as a character? Eisenberg was seriously worse. And there do exist good Joker performances in live action. Lex Luthor has yet to be portrayed correctly.

Gene Hackman was Gene Hackman. Good film or bad, I've never seen a bad performance from him. But his three films in the Superman franchise certainly took liberties with the character.

Jesse Eisenberg was good for the not-Lex-Luthor Lex he was being IMO. The weird douchey techbro millionaire is a different angle and like, he was fine with that. He was just given **** to work with.

It was just another notch in the "Snyder clearly doesn't understand comic books or why people like these characters"

Leto's Joker was awful but a lot of the blame lies with the script and costume design, not exclusively Leto's acting.
I'd say Eisenberg's performance was worse.

Seriously with a better script Leto would have killed it as the Joker

Fuck. No kidding. It was a seriously mindboggling choice. The worst Lex Luthor I've ever seen.

I could see him playing maybe The Riddler. Maybe Scarecrow. But not Luthor.

Jared Leto's Joker was also terrible, but as has been stated, that may have more to do with the design direction they took with him. Maybe it's because I grew up with Mark Hammil's Joker, but tatted up "damaged" Joker just looks awful.

I think I'll go with Leto. Just because of that "You don't want no beef"

There's absolutely nothing redeeming about him. Heath Ledger makes an immediate impression so Joker is one of those characters were I think a skilled actor can even overcome meh writing through sheer charisma. At least Carrey, TLJ and Arnie were still entertaining.

Eisenberg is close but I don't think everyone in that movie is just set up to fail.
