The casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice took a lot of fans by surprise.
Not only is he a bit younger than the traditional casting (Lex was previously played by Gene Hackman and Kevin Spacey), but he also doesn't have the villain's iconic bald pate.
In fact, he has kind of the opposite- a head full of thick, curly hair!
So will he shave his famous hair? Wear a bald cap? Well, apparently the actor has been filming some LexCorp scenes for the past couple days, and according to inside sources…
Looks like this Adventureland reunion of sorts is about to receive an addition of the Black Mamba herself, Uma Thurman!
Jesse Eisenberg (aka Lex Luthor aka Mark Zuckerberg…well, aren't they pretty much the same? JK!) and Kristen Stewart will be teaming up again for the action comedy American Ultra as we reported earlier!
Looks like she has a better working relationship with Jesse than Robert Pattinson. Hmm we wonder why?
And joining their adventurous twosome is Uma who we know for a fact can bring the action to this action comedy.
Uma will play a government worker who engineered secret sleeper warriors & has to protect Jesse's stoner character, who happens to be one of her former creations!
And you do not mess with Uma.
We're so excited for this movie to come out! We'd kill bill just to get a chance to see it!

If you loved these two leads in Adventureland even half as much as we did, then this reunion will blow your mind!!
Jesse Eisenberg & Kristen Stewart will join forces again on American Ultra, an action-comedy from the folks who brought you Chronicle and Project X!
Jesse will apparently play a stoner who gets caught up in a government conspiracy and KStew's character is
Now you see him — now you don't! Because of the whole going fast on a bike thing!
Okay, that was awful but… wait a second! Jesse Eisenberg on a bike… what does that remind us of?
If you turned that bike into an RV and add an H to his name, we get two characters from the greatest show on Earth: Jesse and Heisenberg from Breaking Bad!
And how could we forget what happened on the series finale last night? Soooooo good!
Anyway, Jesse was on a bike in NYC and he was going fast! Maybe he was going to watch the episode before someone on Twitter ruined it for him!

Yup! Bike riding is OFFICIALLY the cool thing to do in EN-Y-CEE!
After spotting Chloe Sevigny getting her bike on in SoHo earlier today, we witnessed another too-cool-for-school hipster Jesse Eisenberg living up to the title of Now You See Me because we were TOTALLY able to see him as he was riding his bike around NYC!
He was getting fresh air and staying active, two amazing reasons to smile!
Guess he's working off all that sweet chocolate he shared with his sweet GF Mia Wasikowska a month ago! Those must have been really high in calories! Ha!

Usually the phrase "now you see me" ends with "now you don't," but not this time!
We'll be seeing the magical foursome from Now You See Me again in 2014, which is when Lionsgate has scheduled its sequel to come out.
With the overseas success of the original (the film is projected to make over $150 million in the course of its run in foreign countries alone), a second movie will really do the trick.
For those of you who missed the first one, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, and Woody Harrelson play bank robbing magicians. The movie is kind of Burt Wonderstone meets Ocean's 11
It's awesome that Now You See Me, which disappeared from the screen, looks like it will now be reappearing soon!

This ice-creamy cuteness is killing us!
Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska shared some gelato in Toronto, Sunday, and looked super happy!
Jess is visiting Mia in Canada while she's filming Map To The Stars which also stars Robert Pattinson!
Although they used to be super private, this adorbz duo is out, about, and smiley for the paparazzi!
Perhaps Canada (or their delish maple syrup) is bringing out the couple's affectionate side!
Or it could just be a friendly romantic competition between Mia/Jesse and RPatz/his mystery smoocher!
Who will win the cutest couple award?!
You be the judge!
