Collider reports that a new press kit from Warner Bros. reveals that Jesse Eisenberg is listed among the cast for Justice League. He made his debut as the character in this past spring's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He later appeared in a key deleted scene that seemed to set up future villainous activities.

The news comes with the reveal that Connie Nielsen will also show up in Justice League, after making her debut in next June's Wonder Woman, playing Hippolyta, Diana Prince's mother and the Amazons of Themyscira's queen.

"The Mother Boxes, the intergalactic devices first glimpsed in Batman v Superman, will be a part of the mythos," writes Collider, "and each of the meta-human societies—including the Themyscirans—are said to have one in their possession for safe keeping."

Justice League drops on Nov. 17, 2017. Earlier this week we saw a dope picture of the Flash in action with Wonder Woman and Batfleck.
