Details surrounding Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman film have been quite scarce. We know that Aquaman will have a cameo appearance and that Wonder Woman will have a sizable role in the film.
Now, we have our first look at actor Jesse Eisenberg as one of the greatest villains in comic book history - Lex Luthor.
Says Snyder of the character: “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.”
While many may not see Eisenberg as the best choice for the role of the iconic megalomaniac, he has had experience playing a morally challenged billionaire in The Social Network, so both characters are very well cut from the same cloth.
“Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake,” says Snyder. “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.”
Hmmm, intriguing. Looks like we've got some figuring out to do!
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons. It is slated to hit theaters in exactly one year - March 25th, 2016.
