Dawn Of Justice: First Look At Lex Luthor


Via Entertainment Weekly, we get our first look at Jesse Eisenberg as the Man of Steel’s arch-nemisis — Lex Luthor.  This black-and-white image may finally quell some of the naysayers who have been laughing at the casting since the beginning.

I can definitely say that he has the look down.  And I’m not just saying that because he’s bald.  Not every follically-challenged person can pull off being one of the, if not the most famous villains in DC.  Let me put it to you this way: some people can be bald and look menacing; others end up looking like George Costanza.

That prominent brow and devious stare is paramount in letting the audience know that this will be one of the most dangerous men Superman and Batman will ever face.  Let’s just hope the story and acting follow what we’re seeing right now.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has a United States release date of March 25, 2016.  It will be directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio from a story by David Goyer and Zack Snyder, and will star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent / Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves, Holly Hunter as a United States Senator, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone / Cyborg, and Callan Mulvey, Scoot McNairy, and Jena Malone in unspecified roles.
