Menacing, disarming and…well, bald, Jesse Eisenberg (Social Network, The Double) officially made his first debut as Lex Luthor for Zack Snyder’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ on the internet by Entertainment Weekly.
“He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” says Zack Snyder, the director of the movie. “Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course. 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.”
The actor has never played a villain before but he has played a morally challenged software Billionaire in the ‘Social Network’. However Snyder’s words and the actor’s acting range promises us a very good Lex Luthor.
The film is due on March 25, 2016. Also starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Gal Gadot.
