Batman v. Superman and Zombieland actor Jesse Eisenburg discussed his new film The Art of Self-Defense with THR, praising the movie’s message as being a critique of said “toxic masculinity.” Just to be clear, Eisenberg wasn’t talking about critiquing aberrant issues in dysfunctional men, He meant men who were raised to be … men.
