Okay, this is seriously creepy. A first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman film, ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ has just been released and it’s pretty much guaranteed to give you nightmares.

Uh, Jesse, is that you? Jesse Eisenberg looks somewhat unrecognizable in a just released still from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Oscar nominated actor will take on the role of iconic bad guy Lex Luthor in the newest Batman film. Details about the film, slated for a Mar. 25, 2016 release, have been kept incredibly mum, but for now you can get a first peek at the bald baddie! Check it out!

Jesse Eisenberg As Lex Luthor

Lex Luthor is one of the comic book world’s all time greatest villains, and now it’s up to Jesse to bring him to life.

In this brand new photo of The Social Network actor in his Lex getup, we see him stare at the camera square in the face, and seriously, you can almost feel the evil. Of course, you will also notice Jesse’s terrifyingly bald head, certainly adding to the creep factor.

Zack Snyder is on board to direct the film, and though he’s been tightlipped on details, he did reveal a bit about Jesse’s Lex. “He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” he told Entertainment Weekly. ““Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course,” he added.

Of course.



A Different Kind Of Lex Luthor

Once Zack began to divulge some Lex-related details, he kinda kept ’em coming!

“Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake,” Zack said. “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.”

Well then…is it March, 2016 yet?

What do you think of Jesse’s Lex Luthor? Are you excited for the new movie?
