In the meantime, Jesse Eisenberg revealed his first look at his bald character for his role as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Fans were given a glimpse of his totally bald character on the Entertainment Weekly cover, in the form of a teaser for his role in the upcoming movie. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will premiere in theaters on 25th March, 2016.
Jesse Eisenberg appears dangerous and eerie in the B&W photo, featuring an abrupt departure from the bumbling, innocent and good-guy roles he has played in most movies so far. Director Zack Snyder told the magazine that he will feature a Lex Luthor that people have never seen. Of course, he will feature the usual attributes of being a captain of industry, one person to the world and completely different to himself.
A lot of DC comic Superhero fans were unhappy regarding Jesse Eisenberg’s casting as the primary Superman villain. However, he is the same age as Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman.
However, with his recently released sinister image, it’s safe to predict that fans are now quite satisfied. Eisenberg will be stepping into a character that was made famous by Gene Hackman in Superman movies of 1978 and 1980, Kevin Spacey in ‘Superman Returns’ of 2006 and Michael Rosenbaum in TV’s ‘Smallville’ from 2001-2011.
Stay tuned for more updates on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice!
