Jessie Eisenberg is Lex Luthor
Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor
Eisenberg is known for his roles in “The Social Network” and “Now You See Me.”
Now Eisenberg will gear up to play the iconic Superman foe in Zack Snyder’s “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” which will be released in 2016.
Fans are already Tweeting and Facebooking about the photo, a black and white picture of the actor replete with baldhead.
Zack Snyder said, “He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” said Snyder, “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 a 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.”
“Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens on March 25, 2016.
