Lex Luthor is getting a bit younger than Kevin Spacey or Gene Hackman when Jesse Eisenberg takes over the role in next year’s Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. However he’s still going to be bald and now we’ve got the proof as EW has debuted the first image of the actor as the infamous DC Comics villain.
Director Zack Snyder comments, “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.”
Here’s the synopsis: ‘“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” is the highly anticipated action adventure from director Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
‘“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel,” Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film.
