Here’s our first look (via EW) at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor from Zack Snyder’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ 

According to director Zack Snyder, “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.”

Snyder adds that “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.”

Batman-vs-Superman

Badass Digest have revealed some interesting details on why Batman and Superman fight in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ [SPOILER]:

In Batman v Superman Superman is no lackey of the government; if anything many of the world’s governments distrust the guy. But it is Superman who goes to Gotham and starts the confrontation… at the behest of Lex Luthor. And unlike The Dark Knight Returns, Superman comes out swinging, pulverizing the Batmobile with one punch. Why would Superman do Lex Luthor’s bidding? What is Lex hoping to accomplish? That would be spoiling. But know that when the fight is over, Batman will be able to point to Superman and say, “He started it!”

Directed by Zack Snyder. Cast includes Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, and Tao Okamoto.
