Today, we are exactly one year away from seeing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere on the big screen. To celebrate the long and tiresome wait, EW has debuted a first look image at one of the main characters yet to be revealed. Here, we meet Jesse Eisenberg as iconic DC villain Lex Luthor. The photo finally answers the question we've been asking for months: Yes, he will be bald!
EW also offers some new insight into this reimagining of the Metropolis millionaire who goes toe-to-toe with Superman and Batman. About Jesse Eisenberg's role as Lex Luthor, director Zack Snyder states:
"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."
No story details have been revealed for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just yet, other than that the two iconic title superheroes will be engaged in an epic fight. It will also set up 2017's Justice League Part 1. Recent rumors indicate that Lex Luthor will be a Mark Zuckerberg-like new money billionaire with a start-up company who is afraid of the extraterrestrial that is Superman. That has never been confirmed. While we wait for more background on Jesse Eisenberg's unique take on this titan of industry, take a look and let us know what you think!
