First Look at Jesse Eisenberg’s villainous Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
We’ve seen what Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman will look like in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice and even though there still isn’t a trailer we got the next best thing we finally have the first look of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
Zack Snyer remarkably kept the DC villain under wraps to the point where we had no idea if Eisenberg went bald for the role or not. However, today, it’s been confirmed he is indeed bald.
Director Snyder spoke to Entertainment Weekly about his new incarnation of the villainous Luthor saying “He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure, other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course [...] Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.”
Eisenberg definitely looks the part with the bald head and steely stare and this Luthor is wearing a t-shirt and not the traditional business suit which could be a hint towards a Zukerberg type Luthor and with Snyder saying “he’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen” this is definitely a good thing.
