First Look: Official Image of Jesse Eisenberg As Lex Luthor!

Jesse Eisenberg - Lex Official

As I am writing this article, we are exactly one year away from the release of “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.”  While this will surely be an excruciatingly long 365 days, we have got a lot of key official imagery from the film.  We’ve got our first looks at The Dark Knight, and Man of Steel, as well as Wonder Woman and Aquaman.  But aside from unrevealing set images, we don’t have much in the way of imagery of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. The main question on fans mind is, would the actor go bald like previous Lex Luthor’s Kevin Spacey and Michael Rosenbaum? Or would he have hair like the other Lex Luthor actors, John Shea, Sherman Howard, and Gene Hackman? Well, Entertainment Weekly has the answer with the first official image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor….HE’S BALD! Not only is he bald, he looks commanding, fierce and intimidating. He reminds me of a younger version of the Lex Luthor imagery that appeared in the Lee Bermejo drawn “Lex Luthor: Man of Steel.” Director Zack Snyder had this to say; “He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” says 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 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.”   Provided he’s given good material from screen writer Chris Terrio, I believe Jesse Eisenberg could give Michael Rosenbaum a run for the title of best live action portrayal of Lex Luthor. We’ll find out a year from now…
