First Photo Emerges of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor

The first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as LexLuthor has surfaced, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. In the picture, Eisenberg appears to be sporting the famous Superman villain's bald head. Eisenberg will play Luthor in next year's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is set to hit theaters one year from today. In Entertainment Weekly's piece, director Zack Snyder says that Eisenberg's portrayal of the long-lived Superman villain — who celebrates his 75th anniversary this year — is unlike any other screen take on the character. Snyder said, "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."
