When Jesse Eisenberg got cast as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, everyone wondered what the heck that would look like!
Well now we know!
Putting to rest any rumors of a Lex Luthor with long, luxurious hair, director Zack Snyder has released the first official photo of the actor in character.
And it looks like a big, bald mugshot!
Now that we know Jesse went full Natalie Portman for the part, we have to know! Will this be a more traditional Lex Luthor?? Snyder says:
“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.”
Sounds like he’ll be talking circles around people ├â┬á la ├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network!
Maybe this casting is better than anyone realized!
