BATMAN V SUPERMAN: First Look at Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor

Batman V Superman: Down Of Justice

EW has released the exclusive image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor from the upcoming Batman v Superman: Down of Justice, showing the balding and grumpy-looking villain in what can only be described as a prison jumpsuit. However, it could just be a style choice made for the shot debut.

“He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” says director Zack Snyder about the character, “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.”

I’m sure he’ll be a different Lex Luthor, the question is will he top Kevin Spacey?

Kinda reminds me of Egghead. Clancy Brown is my Luthor, though.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to be released on March 25, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck joins the fray as Batman, Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa has a cameo as Aquaman. The supporting cast includes Eisenberg as well as Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and more.
