DC has kept their titular villain so under wraps that, until now, all anyone knew was that Jesse Eisenberg had been casted for the role. Debate had raged on wether or not Jesse’s iteration of Lex would sport hair or not.
Well Zack Snyder has put all the rumors and speculation to rest. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Snyder spoke about the what direction they would be taking the iconic bald villain and even revealed our first image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
“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. 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.”
So what are your thoughts, so far, on the current version of Lex Luthor we will be receiving?
