The First Photo of Actor Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the Upcoming Film ‘Batman v Superman’ Is Chilling
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a new DC Comics movie where two of the biggest and most famous superheroes face off. Director Zack Snyder and photographer Clay Enos recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly the first photo of actor Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. It’s chilling.
Eisenberg, who played Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, is probably not the first actor that comes to mind to play a super villain. But Snyder had his own image of Lex Luthor, which Eisenberg presumably fit. Snyder told Entertainment Weekly:
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.
From what we can see, Eisenberg is doing a good job looking frighteningly evil in his new role.
