Exactly one year from today, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will finally be released in theaters. To celebrate, Warner Bros. has released a new promotional image (via Entertainment Weekly), featuring our first look at Jesse Eisenberg as the villainous Lex Luthor. The Oscar nominee actually looks pretty intimidating as one of the greatest comic book villains of all time. And yes, he’s bald.
EW also spoke with director Zack Snyder on Batman v Superman‘s iteration of Luthor. “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.” He adds, “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.” Check out the first look image below, and stay tuned for more news as we have it.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to hit theaters March 25th, 2016. The second installment in the DC Cinematic Universe stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Holly Hunter, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne. Zack Snyder directs from a script by Chris Terrio.
