If you’ve been chomping at the bit for more details on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, here’s a little morsel to whet your appetite—a first look at Jesse Eisenberg in his role as Lex Luthor.
While many fans were surprised and disappointed when Eisenberg was tapped to play the lead villain, you have to admit, he actually looks the part when hair (ahem) and makeup are done. Plus, playing the part of a sociopath seems right up his alley, if you consider his performance in The Social Network.
Director Zack Snyder has said this version of Superman’s nemesis isn’t like “any of the Lexes that you’ve seen,” which hopefully proves to be for the better. It’ll be interesting to see if he opts to pull something out of Christopher Nolan’s playbook and create a “realistic” supervillain in much the same way Nolan did with the Joker.
