Jesse Eisenberg recently talked about the future of the DC Expanded Universe in the promotional marketing for “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” with its clear references to Doomsday and Wonder Woman in the trailer. However, he hinted the involvement of another DC comic book reference in the movie when he mentioned the “Suicide Squad” government agency called Advanced Research Group United Support or A.R.G.U.S.

Eisenberg takes on the character of Lex Luthor during an interview with Wired’s fictional journalist Ron Troupe, where he discusses the launch of his new operating system, Lex/OS. Incidentally, he mentions “Argus” while talking about the vigilante caped crusader Batman and the “very real” threats of danger that is not just “limited to a couple of alien brawlers able to level tall buildings in a single bout.”

“I’m ready to sit down with whatever task force the government has assembled — in the interest of sharing intelligence and building solutions together. If she… they… Argus… the government, whatever you want to call it, has a real interest in fighting for the future, they ought to work with those of us who are already on the front lines,” he says.

When Troupe asks him to spell “argus,” Luthor replies, “A.R.G.U.S.” The LexCorp billionaire is clearly referring to the fictional US government agency headed by Amanda Waller. It’s more likely that the “she” Luthor is referring to in his interview refers to Waller.

Luthor didn’t expound on A.R.G.U.S.’ possible involvement in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Perhaps the villain will be making an appearance on “Suicide Squad,” if ever he wants to help the agency fight criminals. Luthor’s intentions with A.R.G.U.S. could also be because of his connection with Batman and Superman.

It’s been reported that Batman will be making a cameo appearance in “Suicide Squad.” A scene in the movie will show the caped crusader confronting Waller (Viola Davis) about how he disagrees with her concept behind the squad. Davis likewise hinted in a previous interview that Superman would have a cameo in “Suicide Squad” when she mentioned how he would tremble in fear of Waller.
