First Picture of ‘Batman v Superman’s Lex Luthor

ON

The first picture of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor from Zack Snyder‘s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice has just premiered. Much was made over whether or not Eisenberg would have hair or not and I think this pretty much answers that question.

Snyder was quoted by Entertainment Weekly, who premiered the pic, saying, “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. 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.”

To go along with that, digital artist Scott Johnson posted his own color-corrected version on Twitter. This isn’t official, but might give you a better idea of what he’ll look like in the film.
