It’s Jesse Eisenberg As Lex Luthor

Is this it? Looks sort of Je- *gets tackled by Photo Boy*

Entertainment Weekly has the first look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice along with a brief interview with Zack Snyder on what the hell he was thinking.

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.”

Eisenberg might not be the first person you’d think of to play the supervillain, but he did have experience portraying a morally challenged billionaire in The Social Network. And this edition of the follicularly challenged megalomaniac taps into a similar hyperintelligence mixed with malignant straight shooting. “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.”

And here’s Superman archnemesis who, surprise, looks exactly like you’d picture Jesse Eisenberg with a shaved head. Take that, Aquaman poster that turned every woman on the Internet’s panties into an ocean, you fish bastard.
