Well, look at that. Jesse as Lex. And he’s… bald? Surprise, surprise. A bald Lex Luthor. Although director Zack Snyder told Entertainment Weekly that Jesse Eisenberg‘s portrayal of the legendary Superman villain will be unlike any other version we’ve ever seen of the character. “He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” he says, “other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course.”
Says Eisenberg: “The new Lex is a complicated, challenging person” and that he and screenwriter Chris Terrio worked together “to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology.”
So… he’s bald. And evil. But with layers. Just like every other Lex Luthor ever. Not quite seeing what a radical departure this is, guys.
