Twitter Reacts: First Look at ‘Batman v Superman’ Star Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor

0

A new image of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s Lex Luthor was released and while this may be the most different look we’ve seen on actor Jesse Eisenberg, we have to admit…we like it!

Entertainment Weekly was the first to debut his look for the upcoming superhero film and the immediate Twitter reaction seems positive.

“Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940,” The film’s director Zack Snyder previously said in a statement about casting Eisenberg.”What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”

Check out the picture of Jesse as Lex below (click to enlarge) and let us know what you think in the comments.
