First image of actor as evil genius is far more intimidating than Gene Hackman or Kevin Spacey ever were
We've all met Ben Affleck as Sad Batman already, and we know Henry Cavill as Superman took the whole 'man of steel' thing quite seriously. But those who have been waiting and wondering what kind of Lex Luthor we're getting out of Jesse Eisenberg need wait no more: the intensely scary-looking, burn-holes-with-his-non-laser-eyes kind.
'He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,' says director Zack Snyder, 'other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course.'
And so with that we're back to waiting and anticipating for whatever morsels Snyder decides to tease us with for the next year.
